On Saturday January 14, 2017 Mississauga Area has arranged an URBAN HIKE to the magnificent Casa Loma in Toronto. As if that wouldn’t be excing enough, we will get there by train—the SUBWAY– starting from Kipling Subway station.
There are wonderful resources and details to share about the castle if your section would like to extend their adventures into the regular meetings before or after our “Hike” …there are just SOOOOOO many possibilities —soooooo exciting ——-and I’m not even a kid!
To make your lives a bit easier at this busy time of year, I’ve also attached a Beaver Notice in docx format so that all you need to do is fill in your specifics and hand out (or email to parents).

The Hamilton Museum of Steam & Technology is the solution to all of your Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics programming needs. All of our programs ensure that your Scouts learn something new, in an exciting, hands-on way. Each of our programs fits well into the Plan-Do-Review method, allowing for Scouts to take charge of their own learning. Prior to the visit, Scouts are able to Plan what they want to learn. Upon arrival, Scouts will Do the program, with the option to do an on-site Review. Once complete, each Scout will receive a Hamilton Museum of Steam & Technology badge to remember their visit.
Witness and be delighted by Hamilton’s 150-year-old Waterworks, demonstrating social and mechanical life during Canada’s early industrial revolution. This National Historic Site preserves two 70-ton steam engines, thought to be the oldest surviving Canadian-built engines of their kind. The historic Hamilton Waterworks is a Civil and Power Engineering Landmark.
Here at the Hamilton Museum of Steam & Technology, we are the leading site for STEM programming in the Hamilton area. We are well known for the high-quality programming we deliver, and we are excited to team with up with Scouts Canada to offer STEM programming for those on the Canadian Path.
The programs we offer are specifically designed to supplement both the Canadian path and the Ontario School Curriculum and are sure to be both educational and entertaining. Each program offers an introduction, including a water pumping demonstration and a water quality testing experiment, which is then followed up with the program of choice.
Let us work for you! We offer programs outside of our regular business hours in order to help accommodate everyone’s busy schedule. The cost of each program is $8 per child and supervisors are free. Included in this fee are a two-hour program and a Hamilton Museum of Steam & Technology badge. It is possible to book more than one program per visit; the charge is $2 for a second program.

I am pleased to announce the appointment of Tristan Wellings as the Area Youth Commissioner for Yellow Briar Area, effective immediately.
Tristan is currently an advisor to the North Peel Extreme Medical AdVentures. Tristan has been in Scouting since the age of ten, continuing within the program even when he was completing his degree at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay. He has been at Camp Chief for the Zombie Apocalypse Survival Camp, and the Murder and Mayhem camps at Everton for the past two years. Tristan has also attended multiple jamborees as part of the medical services team, working to ensure that safety is of the top priority at these large, well-attended camps. Outside of Scouting, Tristan works in the ER at Sick Kids, putting his nursing skills to good use. He has a lot of ideas for the Yellow Briar area, and I’m excited to see what comes out of his term!
I would also like to acknowledge Max Gunter for his time spent as Yellow Briar’s Area Youth Commissioner, and wish him luck in the future.
Yours in Scouting,
Deanna Di Vito

Our Troop has indicated they would like to try a hot tent this winter. We have 11 youth and 3 Scouters but may link up with another small Troop. We may have access to a 10 man tent but no stove.
Does anyone have either a stove we could borrow or a large hot tent with stove we can borrow?
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org – Thanks!
