The Port Elgin Senior Scouts had a lot on their agenda during their camp held in Holyrood Feb. 18-20.

The main focus was to build a winter shelter in which they were to sleep on the Saturday night. However, they could not stay out in the shelter because coyotes had been sighted in the area.

The remainder of the camp saw the Scouts reviewing the requirements for their Chief Scouter Award, learning to identify trees, and doing some snowshoeing.

Joining Scouters Doug Bastien and David Dadson at the camp were Scouts Connor Cobean, Geoffrey Dadson, William Wright and Gregory Dadson.
