Spirit of Adventure Rendezvous 2014

SOAR Enderby Arieal photo cropSOAR 2014 built its city in Enderby, BC in the North Okanagan area of BC.

Chief Commissioner of Girl Guides of Canada - Guides du Canada Sharron Callahan was in attendance from July 19-24th

The SOAR site was complete with Marquee tents, a tent city of campers, a food distribution centre, cafeteria,  general store, medical centre and a complete stage with sound system! The F-U-N and Friendship lasted until Saturday July 26.

From the Fraser Canyon to Adams Lake and Skaha Bluffs to Cody Caves our youth members and guiders experienced activities and program choices that expanded their knowledge and skills.  Service work was performed to aid the community as well as community service groups.  The Shuswap Trail Alliance – Gridrod Trail project was announced with Girl Guides of Canada in attendance at 2pm on Wednesday July 23. Legacy projects include a mural at the Riverside RV Park.

The week long camp promised the attendees the “time of their lives”. Memories and Friendships were formed that will last a lifetime.

Visitor Day was Wednesday July 23rd, which was also the day of an enormous weather system which necessitated the invacuation of all participants to the Arena and Curling Rink, for a total of five hours.

When everyone returned to their tents after the all clear was given, some found wet bedding.  The next day, the citizens of the City of Enderby showed up en masse, picked up the wet bedding, dried and returned it, many with special treats and notes inside.  We are unable to amply express our gratitude for the outpouring of kindness we received from Enderby residents.  Thank you!
