Saturday, 3rd March 2018. 1pm - 3pm
Camp Caillet Memorial
Rededication Ceremony

Camp Caillet was first used as a cub camp in 1965 by Gloria Caillet who owned the land and was an active scout leader. In 1975, her son Armand gave the land to the Scouting organisation to continue to provide a place for local scouting and guiding groups to use as a meeting and camping place.

Camp Caillet has seen many changes and improvements over the years, most recently was the need to repair the memorial garden where Mrs Caillet's ashes are buried. The previous memorial had become damaged by decaying trees and in the summer of 2017 members of the Camp Caillet Management Committee worked to take out the old memorial, remove the trees and roots and erect a new memorial in its place.

The Camp Caillet Management Committee would like to extend an invitation to join us for a short rededication ceremony, followed by fun and games on the field and afternoon tea. This will be a full uniform event and we would encourage any Scouters, Guiders, Alumni and members of the community to come together to show appreciation to members of the family (in attendance) for a location that has been central to the lives of thousands of local youth over the years.

In honour of the occassion the Camp Committee are also offering free overnight camping on Saturday 3rd March for any groups that wish to do so.

We hope you will be able to attend and look forward to seeing you at the event on the 3rd March.
