Canoe camp a treat for local girl guides and pathfinders

Gavin Lake offers great setting for learning

It was a weekend for the girls at Gavin Lake last weekend where dozens of girl guides and pathfinders from Williams Lake took part in a canoe camp for the weekend.

With ice still covering parts of lake, participants took to the water to learn canoeing skills and earn badges.

The weekend also gave the girls the opportunity to learn fire building skills and take part in hikes and crafting.
