Scouts plan week-long portage

In recent years the First Gibsons Scouts have added a new dock and shipping container for storage at Camp Burley on Mixal Lake in Pender Harbour, plus installed a new canoe rack and repaired all their canoes.

Having attained First Aid certification and Canoe Safety certification, the Venturers (the older Scouts) will be embarking on an exciting week-long portage canoe trip on the Powell Lakes next week.

The camp itself is used by both Scouts and Girl Guides from the Sunshine Coast, the Lower Mainland, and across the country. Last year, a contingent of German Scouts stayed at Camp Burley for one week.
