DIBC – 2019

by on May.01, 2019, under Scouts, Uncategorized


May 10 – 12, 2019.




What is DIBC?

DIBC is a huge camp for Scouts and Guides that has been occurring every year on Mother’s Day Weekend for 30 years. The 24th Scout Troop has been participating in DIBC for 27 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/


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.


All drivers and Scouts (in FULL uniform) should be at St. James’-Rosemount United Church by 12:30 PM on Friday, May 10, 2019 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.


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.)


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 6, 2019.

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 6, 2019.

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.

PLEASE NOTE: Elgin Road is closed for construction north of the 401.  As this is the usual exit we take, we will now have to exit the 401 at the previous exit – Putnam Road, go north, turn left on Breen Road and then left on Hamilton Road.  The map linked above reflects this change.

Medication (Drugs)

Absolutely all medications must
-be in the original container.
-have explicit directions and boys’ name on the container.
-not be packed in the boys’ gear.
-be given directly to the LEADER by the PARENT on arrival at the church.


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.


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.

Activities / Events

There is a long list of over 100 awesome events to choose from. Each Patrol will decide which events they wish to do as a Patrol and must participate in the events as a Patrol. Check out the list – DIBC – Events .

Cook Out and Investiture.

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.

Full Uniforms are required for all but make sure that you are prepared for the weather.

What to bring?
-plate, knife, fork
-a small flashlight

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”.
