Tent Rising Week at Camp Wa-Thik-Ane (May 10-16, 2014) was made possible thanks to the volunteers who spent many hours preparing the sites for the 2014 season. From cleaning marquees to stocking supplies to minor repair jobs and pitching tents – it’s their continued dedication that makes it possible for hundreds of campers to enjoy our beautiful provincial campground year after year!
Provincial Camping Adviser and Guider with the 1st Kirkland Pathfinders Angie Kruller took part with her unit and their families:
We had five Pathfinder families from the 1st Kirkland Pathfinders and two Rangers and their leader, Jutta Bouchard, up at camp to do work on Cree. A lot was accomplished and it was amazing to see everybody work so hard and have fun doing it.
Five new fire pits were poured, platforms were repaired and leveled and the main camp fire now has a beautiful pile of wood, ready to go. There is a platform for the leaders’ tent close to the marquee and the rest of the site is now set up for patrol camping and cooking.
Both Pam and I are thrilled that the plan we had for several years has now come through and we hope that many Pathfinders and Rangers will make use of the site.
Thanks also to Guider Heather Martin for sharing some photos!
