a Troop camp at Haliburton
Scout Reserve -- the greatest

veteran of many happy campfires on one
of the lakes, explore these pages for
we want to do
the official HSR site with even more
practical information for Scout Leaders
so you can run a successful Troop camp
provide ideas for that "other
75% of the time" when YOU are in
charge of the Troop -- for meals, accomodation
suggest how you can take advantage of
the 'semi-wilderness' experience that is
HSR for some real Adventures.
help you use the week at HSR to accomplish
many of the objectives of Scouting.
At HSR you can accomplish
more with your Scouts in 1 week than in
years of meetings back at the group's
the Patrol System so the Scouts can learn
to make decisions, take responsibility
Get to know your Scouts
as individuals, each with unique personalities,
weaknesses. Help them grow.
Build self confidence, self reliance,
as well as Patrol and Troop spirit.
Actually put some of those Scoutcraft
skills to use

at HSR behind them (and hopefully many
more ahead!), and want to share their knowledge

others -- send
