58th Thorncliffe Scouts, October 2020

The 58th Thorncliffe Scouts have been busy in September with the return to in person scouting.  Keeping the youth safe and making sure that social distances are maintained.  We have been meeting outdoors and having everyone wear a mask to stop the transmission of germs.  Each week we have been doing different activities based on what the youth want to do.  We are creating resilient youth with developing, belonging, perspective, acceptance, hope and humour. Creating strategies grounded in security and safety allowing the youth to actively participate in an uncertain world.

Our Beaver section have completed two hikes and have been exploring nature. They hiked up Nose Hill and explored the Medicine Circle and the tracks left by animals, as well as Prince’s Island park. The Cubs completed a hike up Nose Hill, also, exploring the Medicine Circle, Rock Maze and learning about maps and how to locate where you are. The Scouts completed two hikes up Nose Hill; one to the Rubbing Rock, and one to the Medicine Circle and rock maze. They also are learning about using maps.

Both the Cubs and Scouts are going to the Corn Maze and will be going through it in the evening when it is dark!

58th Thorncliffe Scouts will be selling coffee as a fundraiser. It will run from October 12 to November 15, 2020.  We are very excited to partner with Equator Coffee as their values align with ours and support the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals: ‘No poverty’ and ‘Decent Work’ and ‘Economic Growth’.
