After two successive Cair porees enjoyed with the Porcu pine Hills Scouts, word wa passed about something callei Stavely Day that always wound up Stavely Pack's annual Cub Camp. Curiosity led to a deter mination to be present at this much heralded affair. Satin- day, July 4 saw Mrs. Weekes and myself driving south from the Chain Lakes, the new Pro- vincial Park. Creek bottoms and rolling hills with picturesque ranch houses and what seemed like "the cattle upon a thousant hills" fell behind us until, with a little help, we turned off on a long winding road that wound in hairpin curves' down towards Willow Creek. On an upper flat area two teams of fastball players paused to let us pass and to shout, "Hi! Scouter Hocky." Another turn Or two broughl us right into a long flat with a small quonset, some trailers and several tents-. We were in Willow Creek camp. John Strang hurried to wel- come us. Mrs. Slrang, Akela, led us into a warm cheery kitchen for supper. Mrs. Dave Linn had us deposit our lug- gage in her capacious tenl trailer. A summer storm with thunder and lightning broke, forcing Akela Strang to hold her campfire under the corn- gated roof sheltering the eat- ing tables. It was a wonderful success with the Pack led by Mrs. Sheila Wilson with a shillelagh- like baton practicing the sing- ing for tlie special program on the morrow. Skits performed were those with no moving around. Morning broke clear and bright. Inspection followed .flag-rais- ing with a well played trum- pet call by. Scout Robbie Linn. Swimming in the nearby Wil- .ow Creek saw all evidences of water safety and more than denty of fun. The eager Cubs practiced ife line throwing before and "ater learned the essentials of :atching a life line and being wed to shore by Scouter Strang and his son, Michael. Hikes, fossil hunting, a na- ture flower, ramble and a com- pass game followed. Scouter Dave Linn was truly a tower of strength to Akela and the Pack. We were watching a happy camp with plenty of leaders and cooks. So keen is the de- sire to help that most of the helpers book a year ahead. With Akela's decisive lead- ing, helpers Mrs. Kay Carlson as BaloO, Mrs. Mary Gmbb and Miss Janice Kraft gave the Cubs a wonderful camp. Cooks included Mrs. Lois Alsgard, Mrs. Blanche Hall, Mrs. Sheila Wilson, Mrs. Bar- bara Nelson and Mrs. Mar- garet Linn looked after every detail so that the camp rolled like, clockwork. Long time helper, Oscar Schutoski, was in the midst of the planning, the equipping and all that makes for success1. The camp site is actually on A-7 land with right of access given by John Cross years ago. Community effort and topnotch leaders built towards real suc- cess from the very start. Towards evening cars and trucks, even trailers began to arrive and park wherever tere was space. The campfire was all ready and chairs, Benches and logs suirounded it. Guest of honor for the eve- ning was Mrs. Carol Gilfillan. former assistant with the Pack, now moving to Millarville. This year's speaker, Father iorrigan, took over the devo- ional with a happy message hat reached both boys and adults in his own inimitable Irish brogue. Akela Strang formally closed he campfire and all strolled jack into camp to visit over coffee and to find out from ex- cited boys the highlights of heir week at Willow Creek We know what Stavely )ay means now and how a ommunity effort can grow to wcome a tradition. It was in- eed a privilege to be invited lere. Right now yours truly is most happily situated in Camp mpecsa meeting Scouts, Cubs nd leaders, attending camp- res, working with Service Scouts as an administrator or ,'arden. Good hunting, all!
