Trio of Venturer Scouts Honoured

Venturer Scouts Honoured

Venturer Scouts William M. (Area Youth Commissioner, Halton MedVents, 31st Burlington), Nicole R. (3rd Waterdown), and Connor T. (Halton MedVents, 15th Strathcona) were all presented Scouts Canada’s Certificate of Meritorious Conduct at the close of the 45th Annual Burlington Area Scout Competition Camp on Sunday April 22.  The Certificates were in recognition of their actions on the last day of the 2011 World Scout Jamboree in Sweden in August 2011.

The trio of Venturer Scouts were part of the Canadian Contingent to the Jamboree and were traveling back to the airport when the bus they were on was involved in an accident on the highway, seriously injuring some of the passengers.  Over 50 youth and leaders from the contingent were on the bus.  Though shaken up themselves, Will, Nicole, and Connor remained calm through the ordeal and, along with other MedVents on the bus, tended to the injuries of the others.

Great work by a great crew of Burlington Area Venturer Scouts!
