The shore of scenic Gilles Lake in the north central area of Moose Mountain Provincial Park in Southeast Saskatchewan is the remote setting for Camp Pi-Anue.  Kicked-off with an informal campfire, Pi-Anue is a no trace, long-term (9 day) camp June 26th to July 5th, 2015 inclusive; combining overnight lightweight hiking and backpacking, canoeing, and pioneering skills and projects.


 



Here’s Why You Should Consider Camp Pi-anue


Camp Pi-Anue is run in five progressive program stages that make it a challenge for the age of the participant. Each Youth is placed in the program according to age not based on years in Scouts or number of years the youth has attended Camp Pi-anue. All of these programs operate from the base camp at Gilles Lake in Moose Mountain Provincial Park north of Carlyle, Sask.

We understand that this might be your child’s first experience away from home. Our professional staff will ensure that your child receives the best that Camp Pi-anue has to offer through caring, fun-filled, and well-supervised activities. Come cook over an open fire, hike Moose Mountain Park trails, explore its waters by canoe, sleep out under the stars, and test your archery skills!


This Traditional Scout Camp is in the form of a mini Jamboree c/w 3 real Campfire Programs, open wood burning fires for cooking & sitting around in your own camp site.


9 full days of “outdoor learn while having fun”. You will learn how to live in the Great Outdoors coping with all that nature can throw at you and still be safe and comfortable.  Learn skills that will be useful for the rest of your life.  At the end of a week of wilderness adventures, Campers are treated with a day at the renowned Kenosee Water Slides on Friday. 


Saturday is the famous Challenge Day, when skills such as fire lighting, canoe handling, camping skills and agility courses are tested and demonstrated to visitors, followed by a


Bar-B-Que supper and topped off with a formal campfire and awards ceremony complete with take home trophies.


Each self-contained group has a private campsite, surrounded by trees and shrubs. There’s plenty of room for your tents, outdoor living, cooking over an open fire and building camp gadgets.  This is one of the last remaining Scout Camps where you are allowed to have a real wood burning campfire. 


Ahhh, the smell of coffee brewing, on a crackling wood fire, sounds of nature all around . . .


The Adventure


Awake to the call of the loon, and see the mist slowly rise off the lake to greet the sun as it peeks over the trees. As you watch a hawk make lazy circles in the new morning sky, you may see a deer, elk or moose along the shore or hear a tree fall that a beaver has cut down!  After breakfast, you shoulder your backpack for a day of adventure . . .. . .  hike with map and compass or GPS over wooded hills,  through meadows filled with wildflowers…. . . feel the rush of skimming softly across a placid lake as your flashing paddle dips into the water, silently approaching beaver and other wild life along the shore.. . . . and at day’s end, setting up your camp, and with your newfound friends,  reflecting on your experience in the warm glow of a campfire…..  watch the stars and hearing the howl of a distant coyote as you snuggle to your sleeping bag . . . . now if it wasn’t for that one mosquito!!
