Rainbucket - Social Camp
Location: Popkum Reserve, Chilliwack.
Social camps are for Venturer, Rover, Ranger, and Link sections. The theme of each camp changes year-to-year, and each have their own set of activities and events (usually linked to the theme).
This camp is held around Remembrance Day, the 11th of November each year. The number of youth attending varies, depending on the weather. The camp was first started to get Venturers into the planning of a larger event. The hook was that if the camp was happening then the Venturers did not have to attend their groups Remembrance Day Church parades. As the Venturers run the camp, the theme varies each year according to what is “IN” at that particular time. Generally, Friday is arrival and set up. With Saturday morning comes Opening and Rules. Saturday afternoon brings organized theme activities ending with the evening dance. Sunday is a quiet day with Closing and Clean up / Clear Out. The in and out times depend on the Parks Peoples' requirements. -- Ian Clifford
