I also still recall the awe when I got to the cabin and realized that the snow was three times my height! I recall running around in the cabin. Burnaby region still owns that same cabin. Our scouts had to use a different cabin because the Burnaby one was waiting for some repairs, but you get off at the same parking lot, shown below.
I joined cubs in 1969 and still have my membership card for 1st Burnaby Southview pack, which met in Maywood School:
Within a few weeks of me joining, the previous Akela, Al MacLean retired and I got a new female Akela by the name of Beth Reynolds. Female Akelas were rare at that time, but I didn't care as long as I got to go camping! That's what I was in it for. And my Akela didn't let me down!
I'm glad I get to volunteer and help another generation of young people have the joy and character-building experience of camping! I usually just work with the cubs, but then, most of these guys were my cubs just a few years ago, and they needed a driver for the Friday departure, and I'm always glad to help!
From the pictures I got to see of the camp, it looks like they had a great time!
