Orion Challenge – Zombie Apocalypse

Orion Challenge – Zombie Apocalypse


Event Details


The 1st Rivorton Rovers are excited to be hosting Orion this year! The camp will be from 7:00pm on March 23, 2018 to 11:00am on March 25, 2018 at the Greer Creek Youth Camp outside of Fredericton, NB.

Venturer Scout Companies will be sleeping outside and will be expected to build shelters. The maritime weather can be very unpredictable at that time of year so everyone will need to come prepared for anything that mother nature can throw at us. As the Friday arrival time will be approaching sunset, it is acceptable to tent/hammock/etc. the first night. Further time will be given between breakfast and lunch on the Saturday to work on shelters.

As with Orions in the past, breakfasts will be provided and companies will bring and prepare their other meals and snacks. Saturday evening will again be a “Mystery Ingredient Supper” and each company will have to incorporate this year’s mystery ingredient into their meal and will be judged by our panel of “experts” (really just some brave Rovers).

This year’s Orion will be Zombie Apocalypse themed. Youth will be grouped into teams to compete and earn points in various activities.
