Fall 2018 – 163rd Winnipeg Scouts

This fall has been busy for all sections of our scouts beginning with a fall camp at Camp Amisk just south of the city, and participation in the Wilderness Challenge where our youth tested their scouting skills with scouts from all over the city. Our Scouts (ages 11-13) also camped at Haddashville and are planning 2 winter camps. Our Beaver Scouts (ages 5-7) are playing games and having fun while our Cub Scouts (ages 8-10) are practicing first aid, knots, hiking and biking. We have also had a great popcorn campaign; our number 1 fundraiser for the year. Our dedicated leaders are committed to delivering a quality program for all our youth. Scouts Canada is a co-ed youth-oriented program for everyone from 5 years and up.

The WRCC Jr. Board is an enthusiastic group and will be focused on youth in our community offering activities and events at the Club.  We are very excited to see what they have in store for us this year.


What is WRCC Jr. Board?

The Jr Board was formed in order to reach a young population of community members to engage them in the Board development process, build future leaders and support various events/activities of WRCC.

The mission of WRCC Junior Board is to support the overall mission and activities of WRCC by acting as ambassadors, developing leadership skills, sharing ideas and by engaging other community member ages 11-17 years old in becoming the next generation of Directors.

Members of the Jr. Board will learn how to conduct meetings, be a part of group decision making, develop leadership skills and learn how to implement project ideas.  This is all through the support of the “senior” Board of Directors.

Whyte Ridge summer soccer camp

Another summer, and another great camp at Whyte Ridge CC! For the second year in a row, RDT Soccer league has organized a summer camp in our community. Although it was only one week in August, we had a record-breaking number of 30+ players between the ages of 6 and 14.

For those who don’t know, RDT is a mini soccer league that has been developing the skills of junior soccer athletes for almost 25 years! They have a great team of coaches that make soccer fun, while also challenging players to improve their skills, regardless of their level.

As expected, the camp’s program combined skill development and overall fitness improvement with fun games. The players would start the day with a fitness warm-up which included running, footwork and stretching. They would then move on to some drills that focused on a certain skill, like passing, dribbling and shooting. After that, they would integrate what they learned into a fun game or activity.

President’s Message

I am writing this message after another very successful Summer Carnival and I want to thank our Special Events Director/Secretary for the club, Robyn McCarthy.  Without her effort and the effort of our summer students and all the volunteers, events like these don’t happen.

You have a group of volunteers at your Community Centre that are constantly looking for ways to improve the experiences the Centre can offer your Community.

Kirill, Robyn, John, Pablo, Chris, Erin, and Kerry are all serving on the board to provide programs for you and your children.  I would like to encourage more of our Community to get involved so we can continue these programs, because without your involvement, these programs will not be possible in the future.

Step up and become part of your Community Centre and help build a future for all residents of Whyte Ridge and surrounding areas.

Feel free to email me at

Thank you,

Curtis Rossow

Thank you to all our volunteers for your dedication and time spent organizing and running this event, without the help from people like you we would be unable to hold events for our communities.
