For those new to Scouting, this is an opportunity to speak to leaders to find out what Scouting is all about.  For returning families, drop in and find out about plans for the new year.  Registrations (annual enrolment of youth in all sections: Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts, Venturer Scouts and Rover Scouts) for the 2018-2019 Scouting year will be discussed. However, on-line registration at myscouts.ca is required.  Parents of those in Cub Scout Pack (age 8-10) and Scout Troop (age 11-14) can also inquire about registration of youth for the upcoming Wilderness Challenge Camp, September 28 - 30 at Camp Amisk.

Please bring your daytimers to the open house, as the tree-lot schedule will be available (each family to complete three sales shifts during the month-long pre-Christmas sale). Sign up early to get your choice of shifts!

Parents, in the event you are unable to register on line, or would like a chance to speak to group leaders, please attend the open house.

Fall Open House runs for two evenings (Monday and Wednesday).  However, if you cannot make it out, please contact us at 67thwpg@gmail.com for information on the Scouting program and how to register.

Until December 31, 2018, a fee of $230 for each youth applies. For registrations on/after January 1, 2019 a discounted rate may apply.  Registrations will be valid until August 30, 2019.

Remembrance Day Church Parade, with flags, for Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts, Venturer Scouts, Rover Scouts and Leaders. All families welcome.

Our group has been invited to participate in the Remembrance Sunday church service at St. Aidan's Anglican Church. As the church is a sponsor of our Scout Group and a gracious host for many of our meetings and special events, we are hoping that many of our youth, leaders and families will be able to participate and show our appreciation for the church. Prior to the parade, all sections (Beaver Scouts, Cubs, Scouts, Venturer Scouts, and Rover Scouts) will form up (in full uniform) in the basement at 10:00 a.m. and parade our flags into the service at 10:30 a.m.  Youth and families can participate in the service to the extent they wish. Youth may join the Sunday School or Youth Class during the service, if they wish.

What is Scouting ...

By enrolling in Scouting, you open the door to explore a vast range of new experiences, opportunities, adventures, and friendships.  As with other Scout Groups throughout Manitoba and the rest of Canada, youth are divided into five age categories called sections.  While some events and activities span two or more sections, each section holds separate weekly meetings, runs a separate program, and even has its own logo.






What could be more Canadian than a Beaver shouting out its motto of  "sharing, sharing, sharing"?  Girls and boys from age 5 to 7 gather for an hour of games, crafts and learning on Monday nights.
Cub Scouts section logo features a green wolf's head in a yellow square




Based on the wolves and other associated critters in The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling, Wolf Cubs, a.k.a. Cub Scouts (girls and boys age 8 to 10) practice "do your best" on Tuesday nights.
The original scouting section, Scouts is for girls and boys, 11 to 14 years of age.  67th Winnipeg Scouts develop responsibility and leadership skills through their motto of "be prepared" on Wednesday nights.
Young men and women, 14 to 17, put the "venturer" in "adventurer."  Outdoor activities are an essential part of the program and align with the Venturer Scout motto of "challenge."
Men and women Rover Scouts meet in a "crew," developing and managing their own program.  With the motto of "Service," Rover Scouts also act in leadership roles with younger Scouting sections.
 
Adults, Become A Leader/Volunteer!

Want to enjoy Scouting with your child? Become a Leader!  We're always looking for interested volunteers.  Roles include section-Scouters (who work directly with the youth), as well as group administration, fundraising, etc.  Please talk to any of our current leaders for more information.
By breaking the group into sections, youth can participate in age-appropriate activities, yet still progress within the same group.

The program year for each section typically runs from September to June (usually a bit shorter for Beaver Scouts, the youngest section).
