Kids in Scouts are provided with the opportunity to partake in a range of activities that no other youth program can match. Through camping, hiking, snowshoeing and paddling, they discover the outdoors. With hands on learning youth take an active role in planning camping trips, activities and community service projects like food drives, shoreline clean ups and tree planting. Promoting an active and healthy lifestyle, Scouts participate in other outdoor activities like biking, rock climbing and playing games.
Groups typically meet once a week for an hour. In most cases, the program also includes weekend activities like hiking and camping.
The National Registration fee is $200 if you sign up before June 30th. The cost is $230 if you register after June 30th.
In most cases there will be an additional registration fee to join the Group and you will have to pay for your uniform. As the year progresses there may be extra costs associated with camping and special events.
Scouting year runs from September 1 to August 31.
Starting May 15, new Scouts may register for the 2019 - 20 Scouting year and also receive complimentary membership for the current year if a summer program is available.
Upon registration, MyScouts.ca will indicate whether a Section is offering summer programming.
