September 16-18 was the 24th Kitchener’s all-Section Fall Camp event at Blue Springs Scout Reserve.   A collection of Beavers to Rovers, Scouters and parents, 83 in all, hiked, did the obstacle course, did archery, did cooking over a campfire, had evening campfire time, all in perfect weather.

It was a great adventure for all.
