Braving the elements at MacGregor Point Park

Despite the rainy, cold weather, six Kincardine Pathfinders, three Guides and their leaders braved the elements and camped at MacGregor Point Provincial Park from Friday night to Sunday afternoon.

They were glad to be housed in the yurts which are enclosed buildings, complete with heat and hydro, at the Algonquin campsite.

The girls cooked over campstoves and an open campfire, making their own meals and cleaning up. They went for a hike, made a hat craft, played games, told ghost stories, and sang songs around a campfire.

The sun was shining Sunday afternoon and they were able to identify several different species of birds during a nature walk with parent volunteer Nancy Potter.

The Pathfinders' next outdoor event is a challenge camp near Sauble Beach. The two units end their year with a weekend in June at Camp Keewaydin.
