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

Kerry’s Place Golf Tournament

Scouters;

Every year Central Escarpment partners with Kerry’s Place Autism Services and the Kiwanis Club of Mississauga to deliver day camps and residential camps for youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Over 800 young people have benefitted to date. We were even able to expand the program this year. In order to ensure that families can take part with a minimal financial burden, we raise funds annually through a golf tournament.

We need your help!

If you golf, join us for a great day!

If you can access prize donations for our golfers or raffle, it will be much appreciated!

If the business you work for may be interested in a sponsorship donation, it will also be appreciated.

Help us give these special young people a memory of a lifetime!”
