To reduce paperwork and to lighten the load on our volunteers, we are moving to online self-registration for the upcoming Scouting Year 2016-2017.

Given that we currently have a long waiting list, we’d like to give existing members an opportunity to register early and avail of significant registration discount until May 15. After that, we’ll open up the registration to the general public.

At the beginning of our regular section meetings this week, we will have a mandatory parent and youth meeting to discuss the items listed below.
1) Get feedback regarding our winter program (January to March 2016)
2) Discuss registration process for the Scouting Year 2016-2017

The meeting details are as follows:
Scouts and Venturers – Monday, May 2 at 7 PM at Wismer Public School
Beavers and Cubs – Tuesday, May 3 at 7 PM at Kateri Tekakwitha Catholic School.

We expect the meeting to take about 30 to 40 minutes.

If you have children in multiple sections, you only need to attend one meeting.

10,000 Trees

Posted in Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts, Group, Rover Scouts, Scouts, Venturer Scouts on April 17th, 2016 by jestrella – Be the first to comment
With the beautiful weather upon us, there is an opportunity for you and your family to enjoy the outdoors by helping plant trees in our neighbourhood this coming Sunday, April 24.

10,000 Trees is a family event and you can come in at any time from 8:45 am to 4:15 pm. We suggest that you arrive early in the morning because they tend to run out of trees later in the day. This is not a Scouter led event so go straight to the registration booth to get your instructions.
