"We like to keep busy planning camps and activities, and we also like to volunteer as "Offer of Service" at group, provincial, and national camps.  We also like doing service for big camps, like the recent Pacific Jamboree in July 2019. But that's not all!  We have many other adventures in the planning stages.  So, more to come ...
