Blog post written by Brianna from the 1st Lachute Pathfinder Unit. Brianna was part of the Québec provincial patrol that went to SOAR in July.
This year, SOAR (Spirit of Adventure Rendezvous) took place in the beautiful town of Smithers, BC. The plane ride was long but was definitely worth it. SOAR was well organized and all the activities were awesome! Some of my favorite activities were Power Up (where we built simple machines that didn’t use electricity like wind-powered cars and solar ovens) and skateboarding (where we went to a local skateboard park and learnt how to skateboard, it was lots of fun). All of the events were well planned and the staff were very kind.
Whenever we went into town, the people who lived there welcomed us warmly to Smithers. We also met girls around the world, from countries like England, Peru, Australia, the US, and even Japan! SOAR was a great experience and I hope I get to go again sometime!
