On Saturday, a convoy of 7 Tundra Buggies hauled our 7 mobile Lodge units 10 kilometers across the tundra to Polar Bear Point. The Lodge will remain here until mid-November, when we move it further east into Wapusk National Park for our exclusive Cape Churchill adventure. The drive took about 3 hours, then another hour to position and assemble the Lodge. The team saw a polar bear en route and spotted another bear close to the camp as they set up.
Today, the first group of PBI Leadership Camp students and facilitators made their way onto the Lodge and will call it home for the next few nights. They are already having a blast – even with the snow flurries! Stay tuned for updates.
Here are some images of the Lodge being transported and a map. Click on the flag to see where our Tundra Buggy Lodge is located.
