BUILD YOUR OWN ADVENTURE AT THE OAS WORKSHOP

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 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
At this time it is also our pleasure to introduce Mark Wyatt as the new Area Commissioner for Credit Hills.
Mark was a youth participant in the Hamilton-Wentworth area, and enjoyed the Beaver, Cub and Venture sections. When Mark’s sons enrolled in Scouting, he wanted to follow in his father Alan’s footsteps and become a Scouter for his son’s sections. Mark started scouting with the 4th Georgetown Colonies in 2014 and has been a contact scouter for the past two years. In May of 2016 he earned his Wood Badge II. Mark has volunteered with many non-profit organizations, is an active Hockey coach in Halton Hills, and is the recipient of the Canada 125 Medal. Mark has worked for Gordon Food Service for the past 20 years where he currently holds the position as a Digital Product Lead. Mark lives in Georgetown with his sons Spencer and Grayson.
Please help us in congratulating and providing a warm reception for Mark as he takes on this new role.
