TSR Committee deadline extended

Tamaracouta Scout Reserve (TSR) has been long regarded as our “jewel” for outstanding, memorable camping experiences by all members of Quebec Council as well as by many campers outside of Quebec.  An important element for the future of TSR has been the recent appointment of Casey Rose as the new TSR Director who will replace Alison Bentley when she retires from this role at the beginning of November 2014.


During the past decade, ongoing work has improved TSR through program and infrastructure developments at both Camp Tamaracouta (CT) and Camp Jackson Dodds (CJD). To further promote this on-going development of TSR, the TSR Committee will be formed during the coming months which will provide support to the TSR Director and will be responsible for all aspects of the management of the property.  The Committee will be accountable directly to the Quebec Council Commissioner, Youth Commissioner, and Executive Director.


Below are descriptions of the different volunteer roles that are currently planned for the TSR Committee.   If you have any questions, or are interested in applying for one or more of these roles, please contact Casey Rose (
