We’ve got a fun and interactive evening of winter camping training happening tonight! We’ll cover information around clothing and gear; packing; staying warm and managing personal first aid; food and cooking in the cold; and more! Check out the information at the bottom of our Resources page for more info that you can print, save, and share!
This training is mandatory for anyone interested in going to Snow Camp next year, so please plan to attend. Not sure about snow camp yet? That’s okay! Come anyway – this work will count towards your Canada Cord whether or not you go to camp.
Also – please bring in any outstanding fall cookie money!
On Nov 21, we’re heading to WeDay at Rogers Arena! Because traffic and parking are tricky around the stadium, we’re meeting at Nanaimo Skytrain Station at 5:30 pm. Pick up is also at Nanaimo Stn at 8:15 pm. Bring your compass card, and come in uniform!
Please note purses or bags that are larger than 14” x 14” x 6” (35cm x 35cm x 15cm) will not be allowed in Rogers Arena for any game or event, so please leave your school bags at home.
Didn’t bring your form in? Don’t worry – you can still come along! Just print and bring your signed SG2 with you to the Skytrain station.
Also, reminder to all Pathfinders to get your Girls First profile set up! Get this set up before the end of the year, as YOU’LL be diving in headfirst to meeting planning, activity selection, and crowdsourced awesomeness in 2019!
It’s that time of the year, where the air is crisp, the wind has wrestled the leaves from the trees and the rains have arrived.
All the leaves and rain can also lead to neighbourhood flooding as catch basins get blocked, preventing water from getting into the storm water pipes.
You can help be a neighbourhood hero by adopting a catch basin! Through the City of Vancouver’s website, you can find a catch basin by your house, give it a fun name, and walk by it weekly to see if it needs any maintenance. Over 1,800 catch basins have already been adopted with names like Drainy McDrainface and Grate Expectations. It’s a great opportunity for community service.
For more information or to adopt a catch basin, visit their website.
November 7 is our enchanted enrolment evening! Come in uniform and dressed for the weather. We’ll start and end at the church, but will mostly be outside, so don’t forget your boots, jacket and toque.
We’ve been invited to attend a fun weekend at Kwi Kwa cabin @ Camp Olave from November 16 – 18 with the 58th Pathfinders, Orion Rangers, and St. Helen’s Scouts & Ventures. We’ll have time to play outside, cook great food, play a tonne of board games, do homework, and make new friends at this fun and chill weekend on the Sunshine Coast. Karla will be taking a group of Pathfinders from the 9th, if you’re interested in joining in the fun! Check out the event information forms for more information. Interested in attending? Forms and payment of $100 are due Wednesday November 14.
We are heading to WeDay on Nov 21! Bring your forms in no later than November 14.
Also, check out updated information about Snow Camp! Take a look at the event information, and the kit list. Forms are due back in January so no rush, but start thinking now about what you need to prepare, plan for, and learn about before we head out for a fun weekend in the snow!
