    Genesis Moot

    Posted on October 23rd, 2017 by Scouter Donna

    November 10-12th, 2017 is Venture Genesis Moot at Camp Bel in Dorchester this year.  The theme is Colour Run!  We will be meeting at 5pm Friday evening to register and set up our gear.  We will meet at the main building.  If you need to come later just text us and we will let you  know where our camp site is located.

    Ventures should be prepared to bring their own food for this weekend, along with their cook kits and stove if they have one.  You may bring your hammocks but as it is quite cold this time of year please be prepared for the weather.  We will have at least one tent available for those that would prefer to sleep on the ground.

    Camp will close at 10:30am Sunday morning.

    **The Colour Run theme may involve colourful powder being thrown around.  I would suggest you have some extra clothes with you that you don’t mind getting covered.  I am not sure how well it will wash out so be prepared!  Also some wipes to clean up your face and hands may come in handy.

    As always please contact Myles or I if you need more details or have questions

    Apple Day

    Posted on September 27th, 2017 by Scouter Donna

    Apple Day is October 7, 2017.  All sections will meet at Richard’s Memorial Church at 9:30am Saturday morning.  Youth will be broken into groups of two or three and sent to varies locations around our area of East London.  We ask that parents or Guardians plan on staying for the duration of the morning with their child.  Apple Day would not be successful without the help of parents!  Some locations will require a car to get to, but other locations will be walkable from the Church.  As the morning progresses a Scouter will be around to check up on all youth and give you more apples or switch your location if needed.

    We usually wrap up around noon on Saturday and ask that everyone meet back at the Church to hand in their money cans and remaining apples.

    There will be hot dogs, chips, and drinks available for all those volunteering back at Richard’s Memorial Church.

    If you have any questions please contact your Section Scouter.

    Thanks and hope to see everyone there!

    September 14th Hike

    Posted on September 13th, 2017 by Scouter Donna

    This Thursday we will be hiking the Komoka Provincial Park.  The park is about 1/2 an hour across London and we don’t want to be hiking in the dark so we are asking if Ventures can meet at Richard’s Memorial Church for 6pm on Thursday evening where we will carpool out to the Park together.  We plan to be back at the church by 9pm. Although we hope to done hiking before it gets to dark we would like everyone to have a headlamp or flashlight with them.  Myles and I will be bringing our hiking backpacks to  prepare for upcoming hikes but we will leave it to the youths discretion whether to bring theirs.  I would suggest a bottle of water and snack as well in a small pack with other essentials at the very least.  Please be prepared for whatever the weather might bring.  We will only cancel the hike if it’s a torrential downpour and/or thunder and lightening.
