Scouts and Venturers, it’s time to start planning your summer activities!!! Once again a few Scouters are getting together to help you plan some of your summer time fun by organizing a Mississauga Areas Composite Camp at the Haliburton Scout Reserve. You may ask yourself why you should attend the camp. Well here are some of the reasons:
- Survival Island
- Climbing Wall
New this year for Venturers
We will be letting the Venturer aged youth camp, cook, and clean on their own, and take part in the activities of their choice. We will all be on the same campsite but the Venturers will be separate from the Scouts. There is an opportunity for the Venturers to do some hikes and other off camp activities by themselves.
Mandatory Pre-Camp meeting
We are saddened with the news today that Bill Rice, from Burlington Area, passed away this morning. A 35 year volunteer with Scouts Canada who was recently honoured with the Bar to the Silver Acorn and the Award of Fortitude for his battle with Cancer. Bill was a strong supporter and volunteer with The Canadian Blood Services and with Movember were Bill had raised over $30,000.00 to help with Men’s health issues.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Bill’s family.
Gone Home far to soon.

Hi to all
Spring is sprunging (word play depicting a verb “of sorts”).
We are having our annual spring clean-up at Everton Saturday, April 29th starting at 8:30 am and running until about 3 pm.
We have a few of the same activities around forestry (splitting, cutting and chipping)
Cleaning Wheeler and the pool to ready it for filling.
We had to make some repairs to our firewood storage shed so all the wood we split last fall will be placed inside.
We are planning to plant wildflowers to attract and promote healthy honey bee populations;
Transplant several cedar trees from our nursery on the side hill to the field by Wheeler and replace the ash trees we harvested last fall lost to the Emerald Ash Borer. Those stumps were removed last week.
Please let Kevin Donovan know by Friday, April 21st if your group can attend and the numbers for lunch. Reply to firstname.lastname@example.org.
