Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 25, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta I Scouting CA. weekes I 1 1 When spring comes the younger generation are list- less and the beckoning of Mother Nature resounds in their ears. Except on the rain- iest of days the walls seem to close in on the children and teachers alike. In this day and age there is a delightful escape, that of taking the classroom to camp. This year for the second time the Grade 5 classes went to Catrji Impeesa on Beaver Mines Lake the old timers call it Beaver Lake. This is the Southern Alberta region camp of the Boy Scouts. Two large well- equipped Cub villages provid- ed accommodation for some 100 boys and girls, their tea- chers and a number of moth- ers and friends all eager for environmental studies at grassroot level. The children, all from Can- yon School in Pincher Creek, were directed by Mr. W. Bparks, assisted by Mr. G. Snaith, Mrs. M. Rigaux and Miss J. Freeze. Each village had cabins that housed eight or more children. For study purposes these in groups of nine with one or more leaders who guided, directed and advised in the various subjects. Meals were cooked at the Cub villages, the heavier meals being based on food cooked in town and brought out by car. HIKING The hike to the Carbondale Lookout was a distinct suc- cess as were the training ses- sions in the evenings for those learning to canoe. Evening campfires with singing and other fun that relaxed the youngsters were a preliminary to cookies and hot chocolate before retiring. Such a wide sampling of environmental studies met with much enthusiasm with ceitain subjects drawing more interest than others. Nature Study in such a set- ting is and should be every school child's heritage. Moreover, the happy co-op- eration and lessons of com- munal living were noted in adults and children alike. Spe- cial thanks indesd ;i to the cooks and those who hauled supplies or food as well as to those who gave instruc- tion. Actually all learned along with their students. The per- iod from Monday, June 11 to Friday, June 15 will long be remembered by all. Even fhe on? rainy day failed to lower the camp morale. LIGHTNING Electric power roached Camp Impeesa June 17. Lions from Southern Alberta gath- ered at the campground for a special ceremony to mark the event. Lakcview lions from Leth- hridge set up the preject to begin with by assuming the leadership in getting the power to Impessa. This was to cost some a large project for one club. Aid was sought from other Lions Clubs. Responding, up to the present, were the Lions Clubs of Cowley, Vauxliall and Wrcntham. A beautiful plaque on the inside wall of the ad- ministration cabin honors these four clubs who res- ponded to this challenge. At present, power has been installed in the administra- tor's cabin and supplies yard lights. Soon the Cub Villages Tillicum, Skookum and other parts will be wired. Shell Company of Canada deserve a warm vote of thanks from Boy Scouts of Canada for wiring the first part, Calgary Power for turning on the power and es- pecially the Lions Clubs for initiating the project.
