Project: Camp Barnard Dock Upgrades
Vital Sign: Sports & Recreation
Total Grant: $14,281 ($4,981 from donor contributions)
This project will extend the swimming and canoe launching dock at Youngs Lake, home of Camp Barnard. Modifications will add a second enclosed swim area and two fixed walkways linking the shore and docks. The renovations will permit safe access to docks and allow use of the swim area by more than one youth group at the same time. The upgrades will allow mobility-challenged campers and their aides to access the water activities suited to their abilities. The dock will also be widened on one finger to allow a canoe or kayak program to run alongside a swimming or other waterfront program. The renovated dock area is needed for an upcoming jamboree of 2,400 Scouts and leaders from across Canada.
