    Vents Fall Camp

    Posted on October 12th, 2018 by Scouter Myles

    Vents will be camping at Oak Ridges on Oct 19th – 21st. Permission forms are available on the side menu. Cost for the camp is 20 dollars.

    Vents will be responsible for their own meals for this camp. Dinner on Saturday night is available as Scouter Doug has provided a Bear roast. If you do not wish to partake in that please make sure to pack a dinner to cook.

    We will be working on OAS badges and developing camping skills to aid us in upcoming back country trips. Ventures will be hiking in from Masonville to the Bryson camp Friday evening.

    If there are any questions or concerns about this camp please contact me.

    SCOUT POPCORN

    Posted on September 26th, 2018 by Scouter Donna

    It’s that time of year again!  Our annual Scout Popcorn fundraising has begun.  If you have not received your form yet please talk to your Section Scouter.  This year if you sell 1 product you will earn the Scout Popcorn Crest, if you sell $60 worth of Popcorn you will receive a 66th Toque or Baseball Cap and if you sell $150 worth of Popcorn you will earn a 66th Hoodie.

    Forms and money are due back to your Section Scouters the week of October 15th-19th.  Popcorn should be delivered Nov 19th-23rd to sections but I will update with a firm date closer to delivery.

    Remember you are not selling Popcorn you are selling an awesome program for youth with 46% of funds raised coming right back to our group!  Scout Popcorn helps fund our camps, purchases of camping gear and fun outings.  If someone one does not want to purchase popcorn but still wants to donate we will accept cash or cheque donations of any amount, 100% of which stays with our group.  Cheques are made out to 66th Group Committee.

    If you have any issues or questions please talk to your Scouters.

    Thanks for participating and have fun!

    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
