The rain couldn’t keep the youth away from having an educational weekend retreat in Sudbury, May 31to June 2, 2013.
26 youth attended the North-East zone event. The youth stayed at the Cambrian College Residence the entire weekend while they participated in recreational activities like swimming at the Laurentian University Olympic Pool, playing basketball and rock-climbing at the Laurentian University Gym.
On Saturday, they had a “nature” educational day by spending the day at the Lake Laurentian Conservation Area. They learned about orientating and surviving the outdoors, and participated in a nature hike throughout the area. They ended the day with a group dinner and a movie.
There was a volunteer park cleanup for two local parks scheduled for Sunday morning, but sadly was cancelled due to the ongoing rain during the weekend. Even though the rain was consistent the entire weekend, the zone event was a great success and the youth had an amazing time!
