On World Scouts Day, February 22, 2019 in celebration of the founder, Robert Baden-Powell’s birthday, I presented to 70 children in grade 2/3 at a French Elementary (Ecole du Grand Portage) in Nova Scotia, about the Scouting program. I shared personal pictures of my lodge/pack/troop canoeing, snowshoeing, eagle watching, maneuvering through obstacle courses and overnight themed camps. Then I shared several stories of how we learn woods survival techniques over my past 6 years; from Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. I wanted them to understand what the program has to offer, events & activities that take place and contributions made to the community as a whole. I handed out contact information cards to them to take home, in hopes that they decide to join our Scouting Team!
