Standard First Aid Course Camp/SFA Skills Camp

Date: October 14th (7:00 pm) to 16th (2:00 pm)
Location: Woodland Trails Scout Camp

Regardless of program option chosen (SFA certification or Skills option) all participants will be mixed together for all sessions throughout the weekend to learn from each other. The only difference between the two groups is the SFA certification / re-certification group will be earning their Standard First Aid + CPR certification whereas the Skills group will not. Successful SFA participants will be presented with their certification at the end of camp during closing ceremonies.

Program is made of a series of stations covering many first aid topics such as CPR, choking, splinting, bandaging, lifts and carries etc…  at various levels (eg: Standard First Aid, Wilderness First Aid, First Responder). There will be participants of various levels of certification in each group. There will be some stations with content outside traditional first aid courses, such as scoop stretcher, backboards etc.

FLEX/FAST Fiesta! – Congratulations and Thank You!

This past weekend (June 11/12), Cubs and Scouts from across the Council and even from outside of CEC gathered for a Youth Training Fiesta! The FLEX/FAST Fiesta took place at Blue Springs Scout Reserve, and over the two days of training, over 80 youth completed the FLEX and FAST Youth Leadership Training Programs.  Through a fun-filled day of games and activities, youth developed some key leadership skills – including problem solving, effective communication, and teamwork – that will certainly be put to great use in their Packs and Troops!

I’d like to send a big shout-out and congratulations to all of the youth participants and their Scouters for attending the courses – without you we’d have no one to train! I’d also like to send a HUGE thank you to our fantastic youth trainers (Harry, Robert, Kimi, Jack, Deanna, Jasmine, Jenn, Brady and Hannah), brilliant adult support (Albert, Andrew, George and George), and incredible quartermaster team (Ken, Lisa, Jason, and Steve).  Thank you for all of your hard work, enthusiasm and dedication to making this weekend such a success!

Yours in Scouting,
Alexander Court – Course Coordinator
