Scouters, our youth in the Whitby 12th "Wilderness Tripping " Venturer Company received such a strong response to their recent workshop on outdoor camping and tripping skills from the Port Perry Venturers that they have decided to become youth trainers in outdoor skills for other groups and sections. They will attend regular section meetings and do presentations for any length of time to any section from Beavers to Rovers on any topic.
