In celebration of the birthdays of Lord and Lady Baden-Powell, the founders of the Scouting Movement, the local Scout and Guide groups met at the fire pit at the Golden Municipal Campground for an evening of fun.

The participants, ranging from Sparks to Pathfinders, and Beavers to Scouts, enjoyed a scavenger hunt, hotdogs, roasted marshmallows, and a campfire singsong.

Scouts Canada, and Girl Guides of Canada, provide youth across the country with an opportunity to have fun, outdoor adventures, and to discover new things and experiences they wouldn’t discover elsewhere.
