Scouts come from all over Ontario, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York State to participate in a reenactment of the War of 1812.
This camp is considered to be one of the highlights of the Scouting year for 8th Newmarket. Our youth get to dress in period-appropriate costumes, practice their musket drills, and learn about history in a most enjoyable way: by living it.
This past week, Scouter Glen sent a notice to our 8th Newmarket Scouts announcing that we are registered and ready to go: September 21 to 23, we will join approximately 2000 other Scouts at the two-hundred year anniversary of this historic event. We always enjoy our time at Fort George, but this year promises to be extra-special. Details are still to come, but there are hints of exciting plans to commemorate this bicentennial year.
The SBFG has posted a short video that highlights some of the things you can expect to experience at Fort George. Have a look and let us know what you think.
