Cubs at the Wolf Sanctuary

The Cubs had a recent excursion out to Golden B.C. where they got to tour the local Wolf Sanctuary, howl with the wolves and attend a local hockey game!  The food was great and all the kids had a great time.

Winter Camp in Drumheller

Thank you to the volunteers who helped put together the Cubs winter camp to Drumheller this year. Much fun was had by all!

From the Royal Tyrell Museum to swimming, and then the great hikes we went on, it was a wonderful experience.

Here's a pic of some of the more adventurous Cubs climbing the hills.
