Scouting helps young people in their physical, mental and spiritual development so that they may play constructive roles in society. At Fisheating Creek Outpost, we support scouts and their adult volunteers.
Here scouts can be outside to learn, explore, make new friends and play, all while developing appreciation and respect for the outdoor environment. Some things your scouts can do at Fisheating Creek include:
- Day and overnight camps
- Kayak and canoe paddling
- Study Fish and Wildlife Management
- Environment and Nature studies
We are happy to work with you to tailor a camp specific to your group's needs. Some scouting groups that we work with are shown below. Can we add your organization to the list?
