Canadian Scout Troop Pays Visit To Bermuda

March 25, 2015

A group of 36 young Canadian Scout troops recently visited the island in order to experience the “culture, history, and adventure” that Bermuda has to offer, following up to nine months of fundraising to make the trip a reality.

Speaking before the trip, Andrew Bienhaus of the 1st Binbrook Scout Group said, “We’re bringing 36 Scouts from Canada for the week to experience your home, culture, history, and the adventure.

“It’s a big trip for a lot of these youth, having fund raised for 6-9 months to make it happen. We’ll also be spending time with the local Bermuda Scouts.”

Governor George Fergusson, who visited the 1st Binbrook Troop of Scouts, said, “It is great to see these Scouts here. I was impressed that they had gone straight into what was a pretty windy night, sleeping under canvas, and coped well.”

“I teased them that it was Bermuda’s revenge for the unaccustomed snow that the Bermuda Regiment had faced at its camp in Ontario last May.

“The Canadian Scouts I saw were a very good bunch, clearly determined – and well able – to get the best from their stay. I’m glad they will also be doing some joint activities with Scouts here.”

    • CJ says:

      Get an education Mockingay. You can’t even get a four word sentence grammatically correct. Pathetic.

    • PBanks says:

      I think you’re hurting your overall argument by linking every instance of non-Bermudians doing stuff on the island, to PRCs.

      • Say What? says:

        I think he made the comment because they are from Canada and lacking melanin.

      • Build a Better Bermuda says:

        Frankly I have never known him to actually present any definable argument on any subject, just vitriol negativity from a self poisoned soul.

    • jt says:

      You made a comment yesterday “Welcome to Bermuda.” With respect to the perception of the content of some posts.
      And here you are…chief example of you are own point.

      People around you must hear a whistling sound if it’s windy.

    • Say What? says:

    My son, is a member of the 19th Bermuda Scouts, spent Friday night camping with the 1st Binbrook Troop, cave swimming on Saturday and helped to show them how to make a traditional Bermuda kite. Everyone had a great time!

  8. Rhonnie aka BlueFamiliar says:

    Scouting is a fantastic thing and I’m so glad you all had a wonderful time in Bermuda and with the Bermuda scouts. Hope you have the chance to come back again.

  9. What's that? says:

    I am glad that they cleaned up their campite at Chaplin Bay… it was looking quite untidy… but very good scouts returned it to pristine condition!! Maybe Bermuda campers should take lessons!

    • Build a Better Bermuda says:

      No trace camping is an important facet of scout training

      Sorry about that, we had a bit of an ongoing issue with the wind rearranging the site on us. Not our usual neat and tidy layout plan. ;-)
      Hopefully did leave it better than we found it, as that’s always our goal.

    25-30 scouts visit the island as children. Ten fifteen years later they think about returning with their own friends and family for a vacation. Sadly Mockingjay and his amazing and witty comments probably puts them off from returning. Is Mockingjay going to pay the wages of the hotel and restaurants staffs who will lose their jobs because ignorant people like Mockingjay is driving visitors away. Small minded idiot who offers views but offers no solutions or ideas.

  11. Last week, there were two Canadian troops on Bermuda with a total of 54 people. I’m sure many troop members will be bringing their families as tourists in the years to come.

    My troop, 27th Cambridge, has posted photos of our visit here:
