Fundraiser for Camp Barnard Scout Camp


DATE: Wednesday, May 19, 2010

Time: Doors Open at 7:00am Breakfast at 7:30 to 8:30am

Where: Victoria Marriott in the Pacific Ballroom

Many of you have very fond memories of Camp Barnard and want to see it maintained as a fabulous program resource for the youth (and adults) of Vancouver Island. The camp is owned and operated by the Greater Victoria Area Scout Council who is proud to make Camp Barnard available to all youth from Greater Victoria and beyond. It is a truly wonderful property and a well-used community asset. Camp Barnard symbolizes the best that Scouting programs have always offered our youth… a place to learn and grow while having fun.

A pdf file of the invitation is available on the GVA website for you to share with potential supporters. We are facing some extraordinary expenses related to new septic fields, new washrooms, and a new water system that can't be funded through camp fees, as well as trying to finish off current development such as the renovations to the lodges, new cook shack in Thompson Field, and fancy new outhouses in the back country, and much more all to make the camp as user friendly as possible. If you have been out to Camp in the past two years you have seen the major improvements that have been made… but we have a ways to go yet. Please take a few minutes to review the pdf and forward the invitation to likely supporters.

Thank you for taking the time to read and consider this invitation and thank you in advance for your support of the ongoing development at Camp Barnard. Please do not hesitate to contact the undersigned if you have any question about this event or about Camp Barnard.
