That camp was for the Birds

While it was a small group that braved the weather of that early April weekend, we all had big hearts and managed to eek out a fair amount of fun.  Once we arrived we went straight to the Cub cabin and fired up.  That kept the chill off and provided us with a home base to do our taping and painting.

Ice Fishing at Little Bow

This past weekend the scouts headed out to do some ice fishing. The day started out a bit rocky with a flat tire (although some would argue that it was a good lesson for the youth to see how to change a tire), but we eventually made it out to Little Bow provincial park. Upon arriving, former 18th member Sean helped the scouts make their very own tip-up style ice fishing rods and then we were off to the lake. It wasn't too long before we started getting a few bites, and by the day's end we had even managed to land a few whitefish.

Castle Mountain Hostel Trip

The Scouts were out this weekend for another great trip to the Castle Mountain Wilderness Hostel. After a scenic drive out to the hostel site, the scouts helped the manager Tony out with moving some snow piles and then did a bit of exploring. After a delicious dinner of homemade pizzas, some scouts went back out to enjoy a game of "Camouflage" while the rest broke out the cards and board games. The next day, we made our way towards Lake Louise and found a great spot to toboggan along the way.

Last Chance for Summer Camp

We are looking at finalizing the bookings for summer camp this week. Please confirm your attendance by bringing your deposit down to the Scout Hall at our meeting on the 17th.

Volunteers Needed for Selling Christmas Trees

As a fundraiser for the upcoming Canadian Jamboree trip and generally for the group, we are selling Christmas trees. We need volunteers to sign up for shifts throughout the week and on the weekends. Scouts that help out they will receive fundraising credits toward their trip.

The sign up sheet is down at the hall or you can contact the group at and we can put you in touch with the coordinator.

Senior Citizen Gift Bags

A big thank you to all the scouts that helped to compose over 3000 bags of gifts for Senior Citizens. The money raised through this event will help the scouts pay for their upcoming trip to the Canadian Jamboree and our tour of Northern Alberta.

Popcorn Sales Over

Scouts popcorn has now finished. Look for us again next year!

Scout Popcorn

That time of year is here again and I know you are all excited to pick up your Scout popcorn!  Look for the forms being circulated by scouts, cubs, beavers and parents alike.  If you are unable to get in touch with someone you can email us at and we will get you in touch with someone who can help you out.

Dinosaur Provincial Park Camp

There was an exciting time exploring and fossil hunting in the badlands at Dinosaur Provincial Park.  On the Fossil Safari we all got to see many fossilized bones, trees and even part of a snake skeleton (non-fossil).  I think we were all impressed with the variety and abundance of fossil's in the park. 

It was also very helpful that the weather remained excellent all weekend.  Definitely and Interesting place!
