  • SOAR 2017

    July 22 - 29, 2017
    Location: Smithers, BC

    The Spirit of Adventure Rendezvous, SOAR for short, is a week-long provincial ‘back to basics’ outdoor camp sponsored by the BC Council of Girl Guides of Canada, for girls between the ages of 11 and 18. (Note: girls may be 10 at the time of camp, if their birthday is between August and December 2006).
    In 2014, the seventh SOAR was held in Enderby. They have been located around the province (Prince George, Sooke, Trail, Merritt, Parksville, Aggasiz) in order to give girls an opportunity to see various parts of BC.

    SOAR 2017 will be held in Smithers, in Northern BC.
