Four Scouts and three leaders went canoeing on Lake Ontario yesterday. We had a fun time and while we were on the island, we stopped to help plant trees for the new hedge maze that is being built on Centre … Continue reading “Scouts Day on the Water” →

Two of our members launched an online magazine for Scouts and Venturers this week. You can check it out at http://www.gingganggoolie.org/. Here’s how they sum up what the magazine is about: “We’ll cover all kinds of things for Scouts, Sea … Continue reading “New magazine for Scouts and Venturers” →
We held our annual banquet and participated in a Founder’s Day service with our sponsor, St. Peter’s Anglican Church. The banquet went well and we all sang Ging Gang Goolie with and for the families just before dessert. All sections were represented at both events.
Sunday, July 6 to Saturday, July 12, 2014 on the Lower Madawaska River to Griffith, Ontario
The 403rd Toronto Sea Scouts are hosting an exciting opportunity for Venturers and Scouts to take their canoeing skills to the next level on one of Ontario’s best canoeing rivers.
This camp is open to any registered member of Scouts Canada from age 13 to 17 inclusive. There are only 12 spaces for participants, so you should act quickly to secure your spot.
They’re here! Now we need to decide how we’ll use them. On our neckers? On sweaters? On jackets? Sea Scouts, what do you think?
The Sea Scouts went on a hike on part of the Bruce Trail two weeks ago. Here are the photos from the day.
The Cubs made a beautiful wreath and two of our Scouts presented it at the Remembrance Day ceremony at Old City Hall. Also attending were Scouters Keith, Morgan, Paul, and Michael (1st Highland Creek).
While some of us are going to the Canadian Jamboree in Alberta from July 6-17, we will still be participating in the shared Haliburton Camp we have been a part of for some years now. We will be part of a combined troop at camp with the 1st Highland Creek and the 2nd Agincourt. The camp is open to 403rd Toronto Scouts, and Cubs who are going up to Scouts in June. Cubs who attend will be invested at camp.
Our campsite will be Hidden Bay. We will canoe to all our activities. Our activities will include archery, rifle shooting, sailing, kayaking, star gazing, rappelling, and much more. We will most likely do an overnight hike on our own partway through the week.
Thanks to all the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, leaders and parents who came out to help this year. All of your efforts are appreciated! Let’s strive for 100% participation next year.
I think in the end it was reasonably successful in spite of the Navy League and the rain. We don’t know yet how successful we were, but we went through at least one more basket of apples than we did last year. Here are a few photos from down at St. Lawrence Market this morning. We didn’t get any photos from Parliament and Carlton, but CTV came to visit and Amelia, Savhanna, and Morgan were on camera at various points. Not sure when it was to be used, but my guess was the 6 o’clock news. If anyone saw it, let us know.
