Theme: HUNGER GAMES Training Camp

What an exciting theme chosen by the youth who attended last year's camp.  The adventure will include survival skills, puzzles and challenges.  The sky is the limit and we will be looking for activity ideas from the OOS, particularily the youth who register early.

Location: ANGLIN LAKE Scout Camp

We are so fortunate to have many amazing scout camps in our province.  Council has decided to move the Cub Camp around the province every few years to showcase some of these amazing properties.  This year's location is on the end of the beautiful Anglin Lake - known for it's amazing sunsets, and on the edge of the incredible boreal forest of Northern Saskatchewan. The camp is staffed and maintained by the Saskatchewan Service Corps Venturer Company.  They are excited to host us and eager to offer their services as needed.  They are a start to our OOS Team - but we need many more.  Last year we had almost 30 youth involved as OOS!  It was an awesome time.  This year, we need even more.

Cost: $30

Included in your fee is your food and camping fees.  MAIL PAYMENT to:  PO BOX 2387, Battleford, SK, S0M 0E0

What does an OOS do?

Offer of Service is just that.  You are signing up to help run the camp.  There are many opportunities to help:

  • Kitchen Team - providing food prep, clean-up and cooking for the OOS team and the camp wide lunch
  • Reception/Ambassador Team - greet campers, give direction, direct any inquiries, and help resolve any issues in base camp areas.  Those wanting to be on this team need to be in camp and ready to work by 4pm Friday.
  • Camp Set-up Crew - Arrive on Thursday night or early Friday morning and help get camp ready.  You can do this role and another.
  • Administration Team: At camp you will help take care of the details and paperwork: knowing who is on what OOS team, who is in which group, where they are camped, who is in camp, which youth are in what Lair (small group), etc.
  • Support Team: These are our runners/gophers.  You will fill in where needed, fetch supplies, groceries, water etc.  You will check on programs/sessions and refill supplies they need, or get assistance they may require
  • 1st Aid Team - must have Standard First Aid, CPR Level A as a minimum and be able to show current certification. (Should be entered into MyScouts)
  • Program Team - On Saturday there is usually between 8-10 sessions scheduled for the "LAIRS" or small groups to circulate through.  The program team works in pairs and runs an activity/session.  Please note - it is very important that you be in camp and available from 8-10pm on Friday night to set up your session area and practise your session.
  • Activity Leaders -  2 people to be with each LAIR and accompany them through the cycle of activities/sessions.  Scouters & Parents may be joining you, but we want them to be able to wander & check on their other youth, rather than being assigned to a LAIR

OOS Meetings

We will have some team meetings on Friday night to finalize details.  Please plan to be in camp & set up prior to 8pm so we can get started.  We all eat together, and will use meal times to touch base and have short meetings as required.

What do I need to bring?

You, your personal gear & tents and of course your sense of humour and desire to have fun!

Do we have downtime?

Absolutely!  The OOS camping area will have it's own fire rings and staff areas.  All OOS are encouraged to camp together.  Just bring your tent & we'll find you a spot.  On Saturday evening, there is a wide game after supper for the cubs.  We are looking for a scout/venturer activity or challenge.  Suggestions are welcome!  A formal campfire will be for all, but afterwards, you get to relax and visit!
