At Scouts, we say yes when others say no.’ For Canada’s first Kids Yes Day, Scouts Canada wants parents to say YES to kids' requests for fun activities that—without a plan—may seem crazy(ish) at first glance, even slightly risky . To help families across Canada participate in their own Kids Yes Day, volunteer Scouters have offered solid pro tips and hacks to support families in bringing their kids’ zany ideas to life in a way that is age and skill appropriate, safe and most importantly—fun for both the kids and parents!

When parents start with ‘yes, and’, to their kids’ idea, their child is empowered to take the lead, explore new skills and discover their thing.
