My Good Turn Week

My Good Turn Week Brooke Countryman, Youth Spokesperson Good Turn Week is an event that scouts celebrate April 29th to May 7th.  Good turns are the nice little things a person does without being told. One thing a group did was fix a park into something the whole community could use. Good turns impact the community too. These good turns can make you feel good after doing them.There are many ways that people can help for good turn week. Your good turn can be small or anything that helps out. An example would be to hold the door open for someone. Many good turns are done every day.  Some good turns change people’s lives. We encourage you to focus doing something nice for someone else on these dates, Even though good turns can be done by any one on any date. For the past few years my group has gone to Fish Creek to pick up garbage. We enjoy doing this because we do something good for the environment and spend time with friends. It’s a good way to get fresh air and appreciate the environment around us. It makes the space cleaner and more enjoyable. One year there was a biking group and they cheered us on as they passed. It made me feel good. It makes me always want to go back. We were not asked to be recognized we just wanted to do something nice for someone else. What is your Good Turn Week?

Iron Scout 2018 – Cooking Challenge Camp April 20-22, 2018

Iron Scout 2018 – Cooking Challenge April 20-22, 2018 at Camp Hope (former Camp Gardner near Bragg Creek) “It’s the end of the World as we know it; or so REM claimed. A great calamity has befallen mankind, it’s the end of civilization.” Think The Walking Dead, Mad Max, Planet of the Apes, Fallout, Resident Evil etc. and you are struggling to survive in a bleak post-apocalyptic world. Society has collapsed and there are few supplies and you need all your skills to make it through every day – so pretty much like a typical CJ, but there is a catch. This New World, and much of its resources are now controlled by a vicious gang of scavengers, you used to know them as Venturers. Your survival will depend on appeasing them with a 2 course meal, consisting of a main course and a dessert, using ingredients you have already acquired, plus a special secret ingredient that will be provided on the day from the scavenger’s personal stockpile. Satisfy the scavenger’s appetite and you can enjoy the safety and comfort of their camp fire. Fail…. Well that’s going to be another story.
