Sunday, November 10, 2019: Remembrance Sunday Church Colour Parade

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 the Venturer Scout Promise?

On my honour
I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to God
and the Queen,
To help other people at all times,
And to carry out
the spirit of the Scout Law.

What is the Venturer Scout Motto?

Challenge

What is Venturer Scouts?

The Venturer Scout program is all about challenge. From start to finish, the program is run almost entirely by the youth members. Youth will have the opportunity to plan and execute activities which reflect their own personal and group interests. In Venturer Scouts, the sky is the limit! Plus, Venturer Scouts get the opportunity to "try on" different exciting career options through their activities.

Each company has an executive consisting of at least a president, a vice-president, a secretary and a treasurer. The executive is responsible for the majority of the planning. Each company has an advisor (sort of like a leader), who makes sure that your event will run smoothly by offering advice and suggestions. Venturer Scouts meet in a group called a Company. Each Venturer Scout learns a promise and motto to help guide their personal development

The Venturer
 Scout program emphasizes having fun while encouraging teens to feel good about themselves, their friends and family and the environment. Venturer Scouts' leadership skills are put to the test while gaining self confidence.
