Camp Marin-Sierra 2023 | Season Recap

The summer of 2023, I worked on the Waterfront Staff at Camp Marin-Sierra! The month-long experience in the mountains, impacting the lives of youth, made it probably the best way I could have spent my summer. I made this video recapping the camp season!

Over 4 weeks in July, hundreds of Scouts and adult leaders came up to Camp Marin-Sierra for a week of intense fun and Scouting adventures. Thank you everyone for sharing your love of Scouting with us this summer. May the Forest be with You!

Quarry Park Adventures | Via Ferrata (Wall Walk) | Full Course Beginning to End

While this isn't a campout, it was a troop outing as the main event to our climbing program feature, November 2022.

The Via Ferrata, also known as Wild Willie’s Wall Walk, is an "iron path" that traverses along the edge of a granite cliff around the perimeter of the Quarry Park Adventures area. There are two options for the course - the lower easier path, and the higher harder path. This video showcases the full experience of Via Ferrata's harder path. It took me a little over an hour to complete the course, though the official rating is 1.5 to 2 hours.

A Frigid Night: Overnight in a -20°C Snow Fortress - Camp Samac Adventures

In January, I went to a camp called Camp Samac with my scout group. We had loads of fun, played many rounds of manhunt (where the boundaries are the ENTIRE forest), had loads of snacks (of course), and I challenged my self to something daring. Almost every camp, I make a shelter in the woods and sleep in it, but this camp is special. It was -20°C at night, feeling much colder, and I challenged my self to make a snow fortress and sleep in it overnight with no sleeping bags! I just wore my snow pants and jacket, and layed down in the snow and tried to sleep! However, it didn’t go as planned...

SURVIVING AN EPIC NIGHT OUT IN THE FOREST - CAMPING AT AWENDA PROVINCIAL PARK!!

Every year I go to Awenda Provincial Park, and there I always build a shelter out deep in the forest and sleep in it for the night! In this video, I did the same, but it was EPIC!! It started raining heavily at about 5 AM, and it was an adventure trying to pack up and leave, as our shelter was not waterproof and we were getting soaked!

ANOTHER NIGHT IN THE FOREST - INSANE ADVENTURES CAMPING AT AWENDA PROVINCIAL PARK!!

In this video, I went out with my scout group (1st Bayview Hills Newmarket) to camp at Awenda Provincial Park! There, I had many adventures, including sleeping in the woods in a custom shelter! We used rope and tarp to set up a base between the trees deep in the forest, and we slept in it overnight. We had lots of fun during this camping trip.

INSANE WINTER CAMPING ADVENTURES AT WARSAW CAVES CAMP!!

In this video, I went camping at a campground called Warsaw Caves! We explored many deep and fascinating caves. I wasn't expecting much, but when I took my first step in the cramped, dark cave, my mind was blown! It was also very, very cold during the camp. Water bottles froze solid, milk turned into ice, toothbrushes got stuck in the snow, cloths froze hard, and benches covered with frost! Brrrrr. Something happened when we were exploring one of the caves . . . that could've made me die . . .

THE DARING CHALLENGE - OUTDOOR OVERNIGHT SLEEPING IN THE MIDST OF WINTER! (Camp Samac)

During the winter of 2018, I went camping with some of my friends. But this wasn't a typical winter camp. Much like the 'WE SURVIVED THE NIGHT' video, I decided to challenge myself and to build my own shelter to sleep in. But except this time, it was MUCH different. It wasn't really a shelter, but simply a tarp put on the ground. Also, the conditions were much worse. It was in the middle of winter - snowy, freezing cold, and wet. Not only this, but I was mostly by myself, which made it much scarier. This video shares the adventures I had during the restless night, and also some other incredible fun times I had at Camp Samac.

This video records the incredible adventures I had at DIBC!
