Standup Comedy Night in Support of the 14th Barrie Scouts


Over 100 years of standup comedy experience is coming to Barrie for a special comedy night in support of Barrie 14th scouts. Raising money for a trip to British Columbia in the summer of 2019, this will be a night few will forget.

In July 2019, the 14th Barrie Scouts will be attending the Pacific Scout Jamboree at Camp Barnard near Sooke, British Columbia. There will be 10 Scouts ages 11-15 years attending. The Scouts will start their adventure exploring Vancouver and then head over to Vancouver Island for the Jamboree. The Pacific Jamboree is held once every four years, and is attended by Scout members from across Canada and around the world. In preparation for this unique camping experience, the youth are working to fundraise for this adventure.
