Camping Resources

Anniversary Camp toolbox
Camp Wa-Thik-Ane is celebrating its 90th anniversary in 2016. So, to encourage all of our members to enjoy the outdoors and our beautiful camp, we have prepared an example schedule for a weekend camp for you to use. Please adapt it for the age/branch of your campers.

While there have been a lot of changes in camp equipment over the last 90 years, many of the activities that Girl Guides do at camp have remained the same.  We still love to hike, swim, sleep in tents and cook outside. Most importantly, the girls make friends and gain self-confidence and self-reliance. We have tried to incorporate Girl Guide traditions into this weekend camp and hope that, just as Girl Guides did 90 years ago, the girls will love camping at Wa-Thik-Ane.

National Resources on Member Zone

National has developed set of documents to help with planning and running outdoor activities. They include activity ideas, packing lists, budget help, planning documents, chore lists, recipes and more.

Camping Connections

Would your District/Unit like to go to camp but you don’t have the numbers?
Is your District/Unit having a camp that has room for a few extra girls or Guiders?
Would your Unit like to camp but you do not feel comfortable taking the girls on your own?
Does your District only have one Guide Unit (for example) and you would like to camp with another Guide Unit?

The Camping Committee would like to help connect Districts/Units so they can help to make camping possible for all!  Send your postings to the Camping Committee and we'll place your 'ad' in The Piccolo. Be sure to include your branch, number of girls/Guiders, dates that you would like to camp or are planning to camp, and a contact email address.

Camping in Ontario

Ontario Council would like to invite members in Québec to consider using one of 17 Ontario GGC camps. Camp Woolsey and Camp Carruther’s Point are two of the closest camps to Québec, but they would welcome your visit to any of their camps for a weekend with your unit. They have great summer camp options as well! For general camp property information, visit GGC Ontario Camp Properties. To learn more about all camp programs visit www.guidesontario.org.
