Scouts will meet at the church at 6:00pm to car pool to Camp Mohawk. (Volunteer Drivers may be required)

We will also be investing our new Scouts. The investiture ceremony will take place at 8:15.
All parents, but especially those that have youth being invested, are welcome to witness the ceremony at 8:15.

Our meeting will proceed rain or shine so be prepared to be outside, with your uniform underneath appropriate outerwear, regardless of the weather. If it is really foul at 6:15pm, your leadership team will decide whether we change the location to the church. Please remember that Scouts do “Camp in the Rain”.

DIBC – 2018

by on Apr.22, 2018, under Scouts

DORCHESTER INTERNATIONAL BROTHERHOOD CAMPOREE 

May 11 – 13, 2018.

 

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW!

 

 

What is DIBC?

DIBC is a huge camp for Scouts and Guides that has been occurring every year on Mother’s Day Weekend for 29 years. The 24th has been participating in DIBC for 26 years. There will be close to 4000 attending. Troops from as far away as Kentucky and Georgia have attended in the past. DIBC is held at Camp Bel in Dorchester, Ontario. DIBC is well run and organized yet still seems to get better every year. It is an awesome experience for youth and leaders alike. Check out this picture of DIBC 2012! For more information about DIBC, go to http://dibc.on.ca/

School

Although Scouting does not condone absence from school for events, we feel that this weekend’s experience is worth a ½ day off. This will allow us to get set up in daylight and have the evening to meet other Scouts and familiarize ourselves with the site.

Departure

All drivers and Scouts (in FULL uniform) should be at St. James’-Rosemount United Church by 12:30 PM on Friday, May 11, 2018 for roll call and packing. If you are unable to get the afternoon off school, arrangements can be made to meet us for supper at Dorchester.

Return

The camp is over Sunday before noon. We’ll be back on Sunday by 12:30 pm. (If we are wet, we will need everyone’s help to hang tents to dry before departing the church.)

Cost

The cost for the weekend is $75.00. This includes the Camp registration, a Camp Crest, meals, camp supplies. There is a tuck shop and a souvenir shop on site if you wish but spending money is at your discretion. Please Remit on Monday, May 7, 2018.

PhysFit Form

The camp requires a Physical Fitness form be on file in the camp office for every participant as well as a copy with the leader. These will be returned to us at the end of the camp and be subsequently destroyed. Please complete the form which can be found here.

Return with your payment on Monday, May 7, 2018.

Packing List

Printer Friendly Packing lists are found in the Scout > Camp Packing Lists section.

We will travel by car to Dorchester. Parental help will be required for transportation of youth and possibly gear.

Meals

Your meals will be planned, prepared and eaten as a Troop. There will be a duty roster so that everyone has an opportunity to help prepare and clean up.

Accommodation

We will camp as a Troop. We will provide sufficient 2-3 man tents for our youth. Our site is likely to be very cramped so care will have to be taken when moving about the campsite. We will also have a large dining shelter for meal prep and shelter.

Badge Trading

Badge Trading is a great way to meet other Scouts from other areas. Be Prepared! There is lots of opportunity to trade badges with fellow Scouts so you may want to bring a supply of traders.
