2012 Registration Forms

"Of all the camps that I’ve been to, this was one of the best!" 
- Read A Youth's View Of Co-Op Camp 


Please be advised that all youth offer of service registered in Scouting MUST take the AODA and the CYS training prior to Co-op.  OOS training will be offered at camp starting at 6:00 on Friday September 28th.

Please also be advised that any Adult not registered to Scouting or Guiding that is staying overnight and or working with the youth must be screened and take both the AODA and the CYS training. Any unregistered Adult (over 18) dealing with the youth MUST have a clean PRC.

This does not pertain to guiders but it does mean their adult helpers.

Thank you for your due diligence.
