Mural painting begins at Camp Barnard on Saturday

Initiative is part of the annual Telus Day of Giving

Volunteers from Telus will be joining members of Scouts Canada to make improvements to Camp Barnard on Saturday (June 3).

The initiative is part of the annual Telus Day of Giving, where the company’s employees volunteer in the community.

The major focus of the day will be the painting of a 28X4-foot mural celebrating Canada’s 150th anniversary and the connection of the Great Canadian Trail.

The mural will be installed in the newly renovated Keego Kitchen creating a four-season venue for the some 15,000 campers that use Camp Barnard annually.

The mural depicts iconic images of each of the 13 provinces and territories and is designed to encourage viewers to explore and learn about Canada and the Great Trail.

In addition to the mural, other projects at Camp Barnard will be worked on: shower stalls to be installed for use in the 2019 Pacific Jamboree and the creation of a low impact ground level obstacle course.
