The Eco-Challenge entry seems to have conflicting information. The "where" is noted as Peterswood, but the body of the description speaks about Peters Lake. The headline speaks of Peters Lake, so perhaps the "where" is wrong. It is possible to meet at Peterswood, but do the exploring at Peters Lake, but that is unlikely.

Hi Roger - Becky Goodwin-Sopko, the CRC secretary, confirmed the camp is at Peterswood Park through Thursday and on Friday the group will travel (via parents) to Peters Lake Park for fishing. Hope that clarifies things!

The locations just seemed odd to be used for the same event. And, with the names not that different, .. Who am I to question these things?
