International Adventures in Open Discussion - Program Posted March 12, 2009 Back when I was active at the unit level rather than the district level, our troop made a trip over the border to New Brunswick, Canada almost every year to participate in an all night hike/competition event, known as Operation Poverty Peak (and then Operation Greer Creek after the location changed). As a youth, my unit went to Quebec City three times and an international camporee in Sherbrooke, QC. I also took a patrol of scouts from my unit to the 2001 Canadian National Jamboree, held on Prince Edward Island. My scouts all earned Weather Merit Badge as I was a counselor for that at the time, and one of the things we did while there was visit Environment Canada's (Canadian Weather Service) set-up at the Jambo. There are some Canadian scout camps that will tailor a program around American Merit Badges for your unit if you ask in advance.
