Friday, September 30th – Sunday, October 2nd
One of the Alumni Association’s on-going projects is the maintenance of the Haliburton Scout Reserve hiking trail system. Each year, Trails Weekend is held in the fall for alumni to perform the work. The tasks done depend on the number of volunteers who attend, the condition of the trails and whether there are any “special” projects required on the trails or at the camp on that particular weekend.
Trails Weekend typically offers some spectacular fall colours with the chance for current and former staff of all ages to work and socialize together. Meals and accommodations in HSR cabins are provided to volunteers.
This year’s Trails Weekend projects include preparation of trails for use during the Venturer Jamboree next year and replacement of the waterfront stairs.
Here’s what you need to do:
1. Register for the Trails Weekend, online below or by email firstname.lastname@example.org, before September 25, 2011 (Important for planning the work and getting food).
2. Plan to arrive Friday evening or very early Saturday morning. We will be planning and assigning the work crews at breakfast on Saturday.
3. Come prepared for the weather, both for outdoor work and for evenings/overnight.
4. Be prepared to have a great weekend!
IMPORTANT NOTE: As for all volunteer activities at the camp, clean Police Reference Checks will be required for members intending to stay overnight at the camp. See more information here
