Summer High Adventure: Whitewater Kayaking School / SEA Base

We need to start planning our Kayaking School trip. Please send an email to Eric Kravchenko if you are interested in going. Information about the school is here https://www.mkc.ca/ This should be a really cool trip. Siblings that are not in scouting are welcome. Cost will be from $900 to $1100 - this is for a 5 day trip so a very good value. The goal of the 5 day course is to learn to Eskimo roll, Read a whitewater rapid, learn paddling safety, technique and rescue. We will get to run rapids.

High Adventure Scuba Diving Trip - 2019 and/or 2020

We have an opportunity to join one of the Council's contingent crews, attending Sea Base Sunday, July 21, 2019 - July 28th. If anyone would like to attend, he/she should commit asap, as the open spots will fill up quick. If 2019 isn't an option, there are open spots for 2020 too.

If you're interested in this trip, please contact Jim Krueger.

STEM and Training opportunities

The troop may add the STEM activities as formal troop activities, but scouts are always welcome to sign up on their own. More detail to come.

February 9th is the Winter STEM Olympics. Nova Award opportunities, but the big draw was the cardboard sled races. Mr. Wilburn has asked the troops for volunteers. Please see his email from 1/17. If you are interested send him an email.
