The Central Escarpment Council Youth Network is hosting its first ever Outdoor Adventure Skills Workshop! This workshop will focus on the OAS – Scoutcraft which was the popular choice in our survey earlier this year (future workshops will focus on each of the other Outdoor Adventure Skills).

When: Saturday, October 14th, 2017 – drop in anytime between 9am and 4pm!
Where: Camp Manitou (7484 Twiss Road, Milton, Ontario) – all activities will be taking place around McLaughlin Lodge, please walk in from the main parking lot

Early Bird Registration Fee: $10 (if received before September 1st)
Regular Registration Fee: $15

Youth members from Beavers up to Rovers are invited to visit the workshop anytime between 9am and 4pm and can take part in a variety of activities such as orienteering, shelter building, lashings, fire lighting and more! This is a self-directed program so all participants are free to travel from activity to activity, and can participate in as many or as few as they’d like. The workshop is designed to allow individual youth to set their own personal goals and decide which skills and knowledge they’d like to gain.

There will be lots of activity stations set up around the event site that will offer opportunities to learn hands on! Some of the skills the workshop will be focusing on include:
 Knots and Lashings
 Making Camp Gadgets
 Camp Hygiene and Cleanliness
 Outdoors Safety
 Shelter Building
 Nature Identification
 Fire Lighting
 Camp Cooking
 Orienteering
 Trail Safety

The event planners are currently looking for Scouters and Youth members to help plan and run these exciting activities as skill mentors for the youth participants. If you have any questions, or want to get involved in helping with the workshop, please contact Alexander Court (alex.court@scouts.ca).
