There is one particular unfortunate incident which took place after the weekend camp. In all there were perhaps more than 40 campers that attended the training; most were in groups of maybe 5 or 6.

When the weekend was over, I walked around to visit the different sites that individual groups had occupied over the last 3 days. As can be seen in the following pictures, the state of the land that Scout Canada leaders deem acceptable when leaving a wilderness campsite is very discouraging.

All of these images were taken on the afternoon of Sunday January 18, 1998.

These first three images are of our own campsite, after we'd taken our shelter down, and cleaned up the hay, cardboard, and wood that had made up our camp:

The next twelve images are of the other camps from the same weekend:
