Schools and Scouting
In 1996 Scouts Canada started the Schools and Scouting Program designed to help children from grades four to seven or age 10 to 13. Its purpose is to teach young children to appreciate the principles of outdoor ethics, focus on self-development and to enhance the self-esteem and motivation of students in classroom sessions and at a Scouts Canada camp.
The program is designed to complement each province curriculum requirements in Science, Physical Education, Fine Arts, Social Studies and Environmental and Outdoor Education and covers topics such as nutrition and outdoor cooking, team building, pioneering and shelter building, hike planning, outdoor safety, songs, skits and campfire routine. Experienced educators visit classrooms to prepare students for the adventure ahead and bridge the gap between the classroom and camp.
Your contribution will help keep each youth registration fees down by covering the cost of material in class and at camp, camp rental, program equipment, program and kitchen staff and all meals.
The Schools and Scouting program is more than just a field trip to camp, it helps to develop camping, outdoor and leadership skills in an exciting, challenging and friendly environment.
You can make the difference between an average outdoor experience and an exceptional one!
