Malcolm’s October Adventures

Malcolm has been busy this October! He’s had a lot of fun visiting with girls and Guiders from around Lions Area. Here are a few of his favourite adventures:

Malcolm the moose visited the Panther Trefoil Guild meeting at the Sechelt Seniors’ Centre.  He enjoyed lunch and met quite a number of members.  He displayed immaculate manners and received a Crest commemorating Camp Olave’s 90th birthday from Linda Atkins our President.
Malcolm joined the 1st Roberts Creek Pathfinders for their unit meeting on October 16th and learned about making gadgets and lashings.  They enjoyed meeting him at the Challenge Spectacular the day before at Cates Park too!
Malcolm cheered on the 8th West Vancouver Guides at their cross-country competition.
Malcolm got to go to a sleepover, and had an awesome time!

Malcolm visited Lions Area Challenge Spectacular, getting to know Pathfinders from all around Lions Area as they tried new things and had lots of fun!

A-MOOSE-ING FACT: The word “moose” is derived from an Algonquian word meaning “twig eater”.

Pathfinders on the Canada Line

8th Crown Pathfinders at Mix It Up

Mix It Up 2016

8th Crown Pathfinders had a fun weekend at Mix It Up 2016 this weekend at the Girl Scouts Northern Property, just outside of Sumas. It was a beautiful location on an old homestead, big open grassy field with lots of room- the only drawbacks were a lack of water and port-a-potties! Great activities based on the "Bring [...]
