Typical camp schedule and cost, at TSG1 camp HQ. Hosting TSG77.
By popular demand, it will be an even improved repeat of last month very successful obstacles/challenges course.
The main activity will consist of an obstacle/challenge course, to be completed by the cadets split by troops. Beyond the benefits of good physical exercise, the cadets will use problem solving skills, but especially team work, as they will have to learn to work together and help each others through the course. They are guaranteed to have great fun in the process as well. Every cadet will have to get through each challenge before the team can proceed to the next one. Teams will be timed. The winning team will get to enjoy a peaceful post-dinner relaxation around the campfire, while the loosing team will get to enjoy a peaceful dinner dish-washing session around the cleaning station!
- Kids will get filthy, which will be a lot of fun for them and create a lot of great memories! We have 17 obstacles/challenges to go through. We might do away with a few if it’s really really bad out there, but they will get dirty nonetheless. Bring dirty clothes for the course, towels and lots of wet wipes or whatever cleaning supplies! If absolutely needed, we will be able to use a faucet and hose located u the road about 7 min walk away.
- PARKING: It is VERY UNLIKELY that we will be able to drive on the field. We will use the gravel road (straight down the entrance) to park, and carry our stuff on foot. The trailer will be first since it will have to be positioned behind the kitchen area. Once a car is parked, it shouldn’t move until we break camp. If you must leave camp early, be either the last one to park, or use the following back-up parking plan:
Drop your stuff up at the campsite, then relocate to the property located at 74 Kepler road, which belongs to the landowner. If coming from the south road, it is the property right across the 90 deg left turn in the road, immediately after passing the water towers. It is a lot more of a rocky soil. Park on the north side of that gravel road, between the trees. 7 min walk back to camp. See map here: Back-up parking map
- I am pretty optimistic that we will be able to run the obstacle course, but just in case we decided not to, bring fishing gear. That would become one of our activities.
For those ready to receive their Shield, remember to review the ceremony and memorize the “Promise” (https://www.tsg1.org/cadets-badge-ceremony/), and to have both the shirt and shield ready with velcro backing.
