Week of January 13 and 14, 2020

Below is the schedule of activities for the week beginning January 13 and 14, 2020:

Thank you everyone for your participation in the Winter Camp.  Because of the weather, we’ve learned to adapt and be creative.  Our youths learned to have much fun with the indoor activities although it rained the whole Saturday.  Thankfully Sunday morning they could go outdoors to enjoy the ice and snow.  We want to thank all our Scouters for organizing the many details for the camp.  We want to also thank our Venturers for being so creative with the youth activities given the weather restriction.  Also thank you, our volunteers for grocery shopping.  And congratulation to Scout Blue Team for the “Iron Chef” title this year!!  Will see you next year.

Sincerely,
7th Markham Scouters
