Wasa Lake Camp: 0050.0149

BOYS UNDER CANVAS AT WASA LAKE – Lads from District On Ten Days Outing – Camp Under Direction of J.M. Clark and Corps of Assistants In Attendance.

            After days of preparation the fourth annual outing for boys of the East Kootenay district got under way Monday morning, when the contingent left the Y.M.C.A. shortly after 11 o’clock under charge of J.M. Clark, camp superintendent.  All equipment and cooking utensils were moved out the previous Saturday and set up in readiness to receive the boys.

            This year’s equipment has been increased by the addition of several tents, which the community camp committee purchased outright.  Recreational facilities provided include water ball, volley ball, horse shoes, baseball equipment, fishing tackle, musical equipment and boats for the use of the boys.

            The Rotary Club camp equipment is being used, consisting of large dining tent, cook house and cooking utensils.  The camp will last until August 6th, when the girls go into camp, sufficient leaders having been secured to manage the ten day outing for the girls, which starts August 17th.  Those desiring to attend the camp should send in their names to Bruce Laurie, president Community Camp, Cranbrook.
