Easter Egg Hunt!

This year, the boys had the opportunity to participate in an Easter Egg hunt held at Camp Samac by #ScoutsCanada.

The cost for the event was $5, and included an egg hunt,  treat, and a crest for all Scouts Canada members.

The boys each brought their baskets, we were pre-registered, and they joined the next 'big group' out hunting with minimal wait.  As it was a drop-in event, there were several fields 'populated' with eggs, and the groups rotated around, with the fields being re-populated in between.  the kids collected empty plastic eggs, that were turned in at the end for a treat.  The kids had a choice of a variety of mini-bunnies, or a three-pack of cream eggs, etc.

Little kids were encouraged to join the front of the pack....

There were tons of coloured eggs throughout the route

Buddy brought his binoculars to help him find the eggs

The trout were running upstream to spawn:

All in all, it was a great day, and a great event run by Whitby/Oshawa Scouting


  1. I loved the medical guider discretely walking in front of teh littles, dropping eggs right in their path of travel, and the little guys oblivious to it, walking on the eggs.

    1. I think that was a Scouter not a Guider :)
