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:

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.

BUILD YOUR OWN ADVENTURE AT THE OAS WORKSHOP
*Please note that the Youth Development Weekend scheduled for the October 14-15 weekend has been postponed due to low registrations. There are plans in the works to run it at some point in the future, however no dates have yet been determined. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.*
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
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 (email@example.com).

CEC is producing a crest for CJ’17.
A big congratulations to Callista Pitman, from 27th Guelph for the winning design.
We will be offering the crests in different border colours to represent each of the 7 areas.
Red – Burlington
Green – Credit Hills
Blue – Mississauga
Brown – North Waterloo
White – Oakville
Orange – Wellington
Yellow – Yellow Briar
The maximum crest cost will be $4.50, but will likely be lower once we know the final numbers.
If you would like to order some, please visit this page: https://form.jotform.ca/713648
Because of the short timelines; all orders must be complete by June 1 so they can be ordered on June 2. I will arrange delivery once they have arrived.
If you are ordering some and are NOT attending CJ, please put that in the notes section so that I can prioritize crest delivery.
