BUILD YOUR OWN ADVENTURE AT THE OAS WORKSHOP
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!

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).
Save the date for the CEC Youth Development Weekend! Taking place October 14th and 15th at Camp Manitou, there will be two great back-to-back youth development opportunities!
