We deliver a proven same gender year round program experience that helps shape youth into honest, loving, Christ centered, happy young men and women in a fun and constructive manner.

Our youth learn to respect and work with members of our larger community at the local, regional or international level regardless of creed, race or culture.

Boys and girls learn how to assume responsibility, leadership positions, to work hard within a diverse team and as individuals and to finish what they start. Activities are constructive with purpose and structure to develop skills and useable knowledge and experiences that will measurably help develop the all-around child to be the best that he or she can be.

A sense of God, right from wrong, love, service, charity, kindness is fully interwoven into their program experience from a Catholic Christian (blessed by Holy Seefaith perspective. Our youth have the opportunity to embrace the Sacraments of the Catholic Church within various FNE program activities such as weekend camps.

FNE like its home movement (Federation of Scouts of Europe – FSE) remains true to its values, principles and ideals even if society ideals and values differ than those of our FNE movement. Our leaders are all volunteers (with background checks) who devote their time and effort to protect, guide and lead the youth entrusted to our program through our dynamic and extra ordinary challenging program.

All donations and funds raised directly support the youth, our volunteer leaders and their program. We are a registered charity.

We are uniquely a uniformed movement that operates our program like a family with loveresponsibility, support and encouragement. Come and learn more about us to see how your children and your whole family will benefit from Youth Movement.

The adventure of a lifetime - Day 9 to 12 in Rome Italy

The adventure of a lifetime – Day 9 in Rome Italy

Ah, getting up at 8.30 a.m. is like sleeping in – yes!  We used every minute of sleep wisely! After the traditional morning breakfast, we boarded the bus for our trip to St. Paul Outside the Walls Basilica about a one hour drive.  St. Paul is truly outside Rome, thus the crowds were quite a bit less and easier to navigate through.

The adventure of a lifetime – Day 8 in Rome Italy

Thanks, be to God today dawned to be another beautiful cloudless day but one that would challenge every one of us spiritually and physically?  The question is, can our timber wolves and explorers rise to the challenge and task, or will they crumble as some groups have in years past?

 

8.00 a.m. was a much more reasonable time to get up although it felt that we had just put our head down when it was time to get up.  Like in every day past the boys bounced up, got into their uniforms and were ready for the adventure that awaited them.

Today being Good Friday would call on all participants to make a real sacrifice as to the reduced food intake (one regular meal) plus to experience some physical discomforts as part of our days, activities.

The adventure of a lifetime – Day 7 in Rome Italy

This morning was different as compared to another day, we could sleep in and not need to get up until 7.00 a.m.!!! Wow! As always our boys managed to quickly get themselves out of bed, dressed and ready to go by 7.25 am as we gathered to enter the massive Chapel at the seminary.

We have taught the timber wolves and explorers how to effectively walk in a straight line and how to enter the chapel without any unnecessary noise as many seminarians were present praying before their day would get underway.

The adventure of a lifetime – Day 6 in Rome Italy

5.40 am came early to us today, yet our boys managed to pop out of bed and get into their uniforms and up into the cafeteria within 20 short minutes.  We are blessed to once again wake up to a beautiful cloudless warm day!

Breakfast this morning consisted of freshly baked bread (still warm inside), boiled eggs and cereal. The Dad’s arrived extra early to help Father Thomas make the lunches that we would take with us (ham and cheese, an apple, a cinnamon bun, and a bag of chips).  By 6.45 am we were on the move to walk single file to the nearby train station for the short ride to Vatican stop some six minutes away.

The adventure of a lifetime - Day 3 in Rome Italy

This day was a little different as the boys, fathers and leaders woke up adjusted to the time zone, to a beautiful sunny day with a light breeze blowing and the birds singing from all around us and not a single cloud in the sky!  Thank you, Lord! Wolf Patrol was the first one up and in the exercise field all ready to go before even the first Italian patrol exited their tents upon the wake-up horn.

The Adventure of a lifetime - Day 2 in Rome

The adventure of a lifetime – Day 2 in Rome Italy

Dawn arrived all too soon for the Canadian Explorers and even for a few of our Italian brothers as we continue to adjust to the new time zone.  There was not a single cloud in the sky and the wind had dropped down.

The morning silence was suddenly interrupted for our Explorers as the gathering horn sounded loud and clear off in the distance.  A few of the boys stirred slowly as the realization of the sound meant started to sink in… we got to get up now without any delay.  You could hear the patrol chief at each camp call out to his brothers, come on guys we can’t afford to arrive at the gathering place late or worst last.

The adventure of a Life Time - Pilgrimage to Rome Italy - Day 1 Continued

After settling in and grabbing a quick nap our Italian brothers arrived at the Brownsea Italian National camp.  The Canadian boys formed two rows on each side of the road to welcome the new arrivals and to say hello as the Italian Explorers hiked by with their backpacks, tents, and other gear.

The Italian timberwolves arrive Saturday afternoon as they need to attend school while the Explorers took time off school to be with their Canadian brothers.

The first thing to do was to meld the two countries together imto one family of Explorers as afterwall we are all brothers, part of the larger FSE family.

Day One – Thursday, April 6  and arrival Friday, April 7– departure for Rome Italy

Remember way back when as a child it felt as if it took a very long time for your birthday or Christmas to arrive or that summer vacation felt as it would last forever in the early dog days of August?  For our FNE Timber Wolves and Explorers, it felt that it would be forever before the big day for our departure to Rome Italy would finally arrive.
