Scouts make camp upgrades

Camp Wenman, the First Golden Scouts outdoor home in the Beaverfoot, is a place of wonder and enjoyment for many of the community’s youth.

Camp Wenman users will notice some changes to the camp in 2018, most notably two upgraded privie-style washrooms including one that has been designed for accessibility. Thanks to financial support, local Scouts were able to take two existing timberframe structures already on site and revitalize them into new washrooms. These upgrades included adding a new concrete tank underneath one washroom, placing both washrooms on new concrete floors, restructuring the interiors of the buildings and expanding one to accommodate an accessible stall, replacing plastic roofing with sheet metal roofing, and adding new venting to both washrooms.

The First Golden Scouts have been able to maintain Camp Wenman and create a legacy for present and future Scouts and other users to enjoy with help from their partners. As well the Golden Scouts would like to thank James Ross, Andrew Caldwell, parent volunteers and Scouters, and contributing businesses for their contributions towards making this enhancement of the local Scout campground possible. Camp Wenman is available for community use. Anyone interested in booking Camp Wenman can e-mail CampWenman@gmail.com.
