Download: Download Flyer

Night Safari.  Go wild with the animals! As the sun begins to set, meet some amazing creatures up-close, from massive pythons and cute leopards, to the ferocious Vietnamese centipede and the comical river otters. Then warily, in the mystery of darkness, explore the zoo when it’s most active. Watch the nocturnal animals stalk, jump, and pounce, as we feed them an evening meal...always cautious of what may lurk in the shadows.

 

Jungle Cat World is home to a variety of threatened and endangered species such as lemurs, gibbons, cotton-top tamarins and spider monkeys.  The park specializes in wild felines. They include the world's largest, the Siberian tiger, to the rarest, the Amur leopard, to some of the smallest like the sand cats from the African deserts.

 

Pizza and drinks will be provided after arrival at the camp by Jungle Cat World.  Breakfast will be provided by the group.

 

Cost of this adventure is $45.00 per participant (youth and adults) and the event starts at 6 p.m.

WELCOME BACK!
Wednesday, September 22, 2010 7:00 PM

Wow the Cub group is really large this year.  Welcome back to all returning Cubs!  We have quite a few new Cubs - some coming from Beavers and some simply joining the program.  It will take a couple of weeks to get organized so parents please bear with the confusion.

Camp is coming up at the beginning of October so get your commitment in soon so the leaders can plan.  This camp will need parent volunteers to help deliver the mystery theme.  If you are interested in helping out please speak to Bagheera (Tracy) or Akela (Terri).

Investiture will be the Wednesday after Thanksgiving so all members will be full members of the group by Apple Day. 

What's Apple Day - its a fundraiser for Scouting.  Our own Greywolf (Edna) is the coordinator.  We ask that every member of Cubs try and volunteer at least an hour of their time each day on Thursday evening, Friday evening , Saturday or some time on Sunday.  There will be a sign up sheet available shortly.

On Saturday October 23 the 5th Aurora Scouting group will be "haunting" Sheppard's Bush in association with the Town of Aurora.  This is another fundraiser for the group.  We will need to create some displays - scary and not so scary.  We could also use some help to man the displays so they can be interactive rather than static.  If any parent is willing to help out or has an idea please speak to Akela (Terri), Baloo (Wayne) or Bagheera (Tracy).

The leaders will attempt to keep the website as up to date as possible so please check back frequently.

RADIO STATION VISIT
Saturday, November 15, 2008 1:00 PM

Radio Station Visit
 
ROCK 95
 
As part of our Blue Star requirements, we have arranged to visit a radio station in Barrie. 
 
On our visit, we will learn a bit about the history of radio, some of the technology involved, and tour the station(s) studios and newsroom. We will also have a chance to play a little in a sound room with some sound engineers.
 
As with all cub outings, youth should be in uniform.
 
We are meeting the owner at his station at 1:00 p.m. sharp on Saturday, November 15. It will be about a 40 – 45 minute drive, so we should meet at the school by noon. We will definitely need to leave at 12:15 without delay. Car-pooling makes the most sense so an early indication of who is interested in coming would be helpful in organizing the logistics.
 
We would expect to have the cubs back to Aurora by 3:30.
 
Please let us know by next Wednesday by returning this form at next weeks meeting, or by email to Akela.
