Quest for Gold
“Bush Creek” is an annual Summer Camp organized and run by an experienced core team that will this year include Scouters Al ‘Gooeytack’ Green, Don ‘Big Mac’ MacPherson, Roxy ‘Pipe’ Morley, Frank ‘TumTum’ Watson, Raelene ‘Ticky’ Paille, Mark ‘Gadget’ Paetkau, Andrew ‘Kodiak’ Watson, Kevin ‘Sarup’ O’Neil, and more.
The camp is open to all registered Kamloops Area Scouts, Venturers and Rovers (including Cub Scouts entering the Scout program that will be 11 years old by December 31st 2014)
Come to Bush Creek Camp to search for gold, learn a little British Columbia history, eat, sleep, and play as the gold seekers did in the late 1800’s at Tranquille and Williams Creeks. Travel to the gold rush by Canoes and Kayak. Learn to pan for the yellow metal. Wake up to the scent of pines, chatter of squirrels, and a hearty breakfast. Dress like a Prospector to win the “fashion” show, play bush “Croquet”, join in the “Wild West Show”, and traverse the tricky “Fraser River Canyon” on the Cariboo trail!
The camp is tents only (supplied), includes a large covered dining and activity area, a covered outdoor kitchen, and well maintained outhouses. There is no electrical, telephone, or cell service.
