FTE Testimonials

Over the years I've attended FTE as a facilitator. I've experienced so many great adventures. Making so many new friends and joining the family of FTE. FTE is a great place to learn new skills, gather around a campfire, singing songs, doing skits and cheering loud for all to hear. Canoeing down the Red Deer River, hiking and interacting with people who are determined scouters and youth who are interested in doing their best and learning new things. With themes and enthusiasm FTE is by far one of the greatest camps I've every attended. I've reached highest heights and I've achieved many awards such as my Woodbadge II. I've acquired many new nicknames and great new friends and this is just the beginning. YIS!

Offer of Service
The Harry Potter FTE of 2019 was my first experience with a training of this caliber, and I will admit, I registered because of the theme! I wasn’t sure what to expect: I was nervous about what the kids would do and where they would be, and I was apprehensive, as I was a relatively new and unseasoned Scouter, with little to share, but I had an amazing time!

Everyone was very welcoming, the sessions were small enough that I was not socially overwhelmed, and there was such a sense of camaraderie and openness with the idea sharing, the story sharing, and the sharing of successes and flops, that I felt quite comfortable and not only learned all sorts of tips and tricks, and met some amazing Scouters, but I left camp feeling revitalized and excited for the fall!
The most amazing part, however, was the experience my kids had: not only did they participate in awesome scouting activities, but they experienced a level of freedom they did not have at home: I felt comfortable letting them head off to the canteen, meet us at the movie, drop their friends off at their campsite and meet us back at ours, and I didn’t worry (much!) as they were in a community of ever-watchful Scouters! And the stories they told of their adventures - we weren’t even off-site at the end of the week, and they were already talking about NEXT FTE!
(and I maybe was, too!)
I cannot recommend FTE enough, and if you have the time, I suggest you come experience it for yourself!
