A couple of updates this morning for everybody.

  • Bowling tonight, out at the North Gower Bowling Alley. Details in my previous post.

  • "Swim up" our year end formal ceremony is Wednesday May 22 at Claudette Cain Park as mentioned previously.

All Sections Camp is approaching. My apologies for the late notice, I am not sure if I missed it or why I fell out of the loop, but the details were firmed up and arrived in my inbox mid last week. Here they are;

NOTE: We have limited leadership coverage at this event. To allow the event to go forward for A Colony, we ask that a parent participate with their Beaver. If you need gear, let us know in advance and we'll make arraignments so that everyone is properly outfitted.


2013 1st Manotick All Sections Camp
May 24 – 26, 2013

The All Section’s is an annual camp where all of the Sections - Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, and occasionally Venturers come together to celebrate the end of the Scouting year.

This weekend has planned activities for every Section such as orienteering, canoeing, hiking, geocaching, zip lines, crafts, swimming, etc.  The camp runs from Friday evening (arrival at camp ~ 19:30h) through to Sunday noon.

This year’s All Section Camp will be held at Whispering Pines Scout camp. Whispering Pines is a 21-Acre Wilderness camp located near Perth – just an hour’s drive from the Manotick/Riverside South area.

This is a “bring your own tent/trailer camp”.  If you do not have a tent, arrangements can be made through your Contact Leader to borrow one on a first come, first serve basis.

More information (directions, what to pack, etc.) will be posted on the 1st Manotick website:  http://www.1stmanotickscouting.ca/home


Friday – Sunday:  $25 per person
Saturday – Sunday:  $20 per person

That's all for now folks, see you tonight in North Gower!!
