Unit Updates – Nov 1

We’ve got a lot on the go tomorrow!

Pathfinders new to the unit will be completing some very important modules in preparation for next week’s enrolment ceremony at Old Spaghetti Factory. These modules are mandatory for enrolment and for your Canada Cord! New Pathfinders will also receive their Pathfinder program books tomorrow.

2nd and 3rd year Pathfinders will be leading games and activities for the Brownies upstairs, and earning volunteer hours for their Canada Cords to boot!

Time permitting, we’ll be making up our camp meal plan!

Fall Camp forms and payment as well as cookie money are due tonight. Cheques for camp can be post-dated, but we need to know how many Pathfinders are interested in attending so we can prepare crests, crafts, delicious meals and more! Please speak to a leader if you have any questions.

Provincial Camping Opportunity – ROAM 2018

ROAM 2018 – Follow The Gold Rush – July 5-15, 2018

Murder, mayhem and mystery were all part of BC’s gold rush. Come explore the beautifully scenic gold rush trail, from New Westminster to Barkerville, with your sisters in Guiding. Everyone will gather at Richmond Guide House to begin our exploration of the adventure of the gold rush. We will travel to the original capital of BC and then head north following the trail used by gold seekers, over 100 years ago, through the Caribou region. The possible activities are endless, including visits to museums, cultural and heritage sites, and walking tours. We will have plenty of opportunity to enjoy outdoor adventures, such as white water rafting and horseback riding, in between our geocaching and having fun. Be sure to pack your camera, as this trip will be filled with great Kodak moments.

If you are a registered Pathfinder at the date of the camp, these opportunities could be yours. Join 12 Pathfinders for a 10-night travelling tour, exploring the Gold Rush Trail. Check out the attached information sheet on how to apply for this exciting experience, to develop new friendships and make memories that will last a life time.
