Polar Bear Swim 

Camp Barnard Polar Bear Swim

Yes, it is time... to start training for the POLAR BEAR SWIM! What better way to show your love and support of Camp Barnard?
The funds raised from this event will go towards repairs, maintenance, and on-going development at camp. Don’t think about how cold the water of the lake might be on New Years Day, think now we have new washrooms next to Mor... the next plan is for 3 hot showers in a new washroom building at Keego! This is an important fundraiser for the camp so don't delay...
Ways to support;
  • Sponsor someone to take the plunge on January 1st.
  • Sponsor someone to not swim… total pledges in the “don’t have to swim column” allows the participant to avoid a refreshing dip in the lake if they want to… but why would they want to do that?
  • Challenge others to take part… who can raise the most money to support Camp Barnard?
  • Can’t swim? Bring your canoe or kayak out.
  • Out of town on January 1st, why not make a direct donation to Camp Barnard or sponsor someone else to swim? Or take the plunge wherever you are!

Willy has agreed to host a swim at Camp Barnard again this year, and will reserve the right to postpone the swim if conditions dictate. Please let Willy know if you will be swimming at camp campbarnard@scouts.ca.  Everyone taking part at camp is responsible for their own first aid. 

Location: TBA
