Congratulations and meeting updates!

Congratulations, Pathfinders! We earned +$180 for the CWFF at the karaoke fundraiser we hosted last week! We’d set our unit goal at raising $100, so congrats – you almost doubled that! What a fun night and amazing team effort.

This Wednesday, we’re starting an amazing sock monkey crafting project. We’ll be working on some crafting skills, but more importantly, be creating some lovely buddies to take home upon completion! This is a great hands-on project with fun take-home product.

Remember, we’re collecting forms and payment for the kayaking course in June with EcoMarine Paddlesport. Bring your detail back as soon as possible to secure your spot!

Kayaking Course with EcoMarine Paddlesport – June 2-3 2018

We’re doing an amazing kayaking training course with EcoMarine Adventures!

Over this two-day course, you will learn the essential kayaking skills needed for a great water-sport adventure. On the water we focus on skills such as boat handling, launching, landing and balancing. Once comfortable in the kayak you will learn how to safely exit your kayak in the event of a capsize, how to get back in with the help of a partner and how to get back in on your own. You will earn the Paddle Canada Basic Kayak certification upon completion.

Please complete the forms below and return with payment to a Unit Guider no later than May 2, 2018.  Payment can be made in two instalments of $50 payable by May 2, and remainder payable May 30 (you can use Spring cookie cash, too!).

More information, including what to bring, is available in the Event Calendar posting.

By completing this course, you will complete the following modules: Out on the Trails #3 (kayak training), Outdoor Know How #8 (water safety), and Outdoor Know How #9 (weather forecasting).
