Tree Chipping Information

We’re please to share the following information about the Ridge Meadows Search & Rescue Annual Tree Chipping service. This will take place January 2nd/3rd and 9th/10th, 2021 at 9am-4pm. This service is provided by donation with proceeds going to help Ridge Meadows Search & Rescue!

Location: Search & Rescue Building at 23598 Jim Robson Way, Maple Ridge (next to Planet Ice / Albion Fairgrounds). 

Unfortunately, due to the current COVID-19 restrictions impacting in-person Scouting activities, we’re unable to offer our tree pick-up service this year. We hope to provide this service again during the 2021/22 season.

Thank you for supporting 1st Haney Scouts and Search & Rescue!

Excited to be Scouting again!

We’re excited to start our season back up and running this September. We’re going to have a completely outdoor program with many health and safety precautions in place, following Scouts Canada policies as well as BC Public Health orders and guidelines.

We’re looking at some great activities to get rolling, including hikes, canoeing, kayaking, climbing (wild play) and more!

Our members should be hearing from their various section leads and youth leadership teams shortly. Stay tuned.

This Season!

Lots of activities so far this season, including archery, lots of camping, skating, curling, canoeing; we attended Cub Skills, Cub First-Aid Day, the Maple Ridge Remembrance Parade, Christmas in the Park event, had a Halloween party, attended social camps including snow camps on Mt. Seymour and Manning Park, and much much more!

 


Recent Activities

Some of our most recent events included collecting food for the Friends in Need Food Bank in Maple Ridge, sailing in English Bay, holding our annual advancement ceremonies, hosting a family camp at Camp Whonnock, sleeping over at the Vancouver Aquarium, and visiting the 4Cats Art Studio.
