Info Session WJ19 for Mississauga – Wed Nov 29

Attention Scouters – Please give this information to every youth member of your Troop (and his or her parents) whose birthday falls between July 22, 2001 and July 21, 2005). They are eligible to become a participant in the Canadian Contingent to the World Jamboree 2019. Whatever you think the obstacles will be for them they all deserve the chance to get information and to make their decision as to whether to go or not. Please bring or send them with a parent.

World Jamboree 2019 – Information Session
Hosted by 6th Erin Mills and 3rd Meadowvale for all of Mississauga
Wednesday November 29th at 7:30pm
Erindale Presbyterian Church
1560 Dundas Street West, Mississauga

  • This information Session is intended to bring together individuals who may wish to go to the Jamboree. It is the opportunity to establish links with others for the purpose of patrol formation, fund raising or both.
  • Canada along with the USA and Mexico are joint hosts to this Jamboree and it is close and therefore less expensive. It can be made an affordable adventure.
  • Youth members have only one opportunity during their time in Scouting to attend as a youth participant and it is the ultimate Scouting experience one can have. There will be more than 40,000 participants from over 150 countries of the world.
  • An Early Bird Discount is available to those who commit before Dec 15, 2017.
  • Information will also be available for adult volunteers who want to become part of the International Service Team which supports the Jamboree.

Queen’s Venturer Ceremony

The QVA ceremony that we normally hold in the fall will be postponed until next year and we will be holding a double ceremony as we did a few years ago. Unfortunately, the LG’s schedule could not accommodate us this year.

CECuboree Planning Meeting

It may be fall, but we are already looking forward to June and CECuboree 2018!

Calling all Cub Scouters and Howlers. If you attended CECuboree last year and/or are interested in this year come on out to give input about what you want to see at CECuboree 2018.

We went through all the cub suggestions for a theme and the choice was clear……..”Nintendo” will be the theme for CECuboree 2018. Mario and the gang were the most requested, from Smash Bros. to Mario Cart.

Come on out for our Howlers Council meeting:
Blue Springs Scout Reserve
Saturday, Oct 28th
2-4pm.
Main Lodge Parking lot
14045 6th Line Nassagawaya
Milton, On

We will be helping out with the facility with a clean and hike as well as a great chance to review and brainstorm ideas to make CECuboree 2018 even better than last year.

Mark your calendars for CECuboree 2018, June 8-10.
