Plenty of new things happening this year:-New Scouts!

Our first Scout meeting is on September 13th, starting at 7pm and will end at 9pm, at Monaghan Forest (parking across from Valleyview Animal Farm).
There will be a short meeting with ALL the parents at the end of the meeting. Meet at 8:40 in the parking lot.
Over the next eight weeks the troop will meet in the forest. The first three we will begin building patrols, creating some ideas for our adventures this year, preparing for our first camp and playing games. SCOUTS -Be Prepared ... these meetings will be rain or shine so dress for the weather. You will need your pocket knife, head lamp and water bottle (full), all stuffed in a small day pack.
A note about head lamps...
As most of our meetings will be outside in the dark and we will usually arriving at camp and setting up in the dark a good quality head lamp is a must.
Scout Shop, MEC, LeBaron and Bushtaca have good quality lamps, you can expect to pay between $20 and $40 (anything more than that is unnecessary).
The features you are looking fore are 35 / 70 Lumens AAA power source and led bulbs.
