Let’s Get Out Con Registration is Now Open!

Please share with your fellow Scouters and Senior Youth

Join your fellow Scouters this fall, in person! Yes, live! We will explore together some amazing skills to bring your program to the next level. Our morning begins with some Scouter Development, including a great session for new Scouters. Our Afternoon is a series of short skills sessions to discover new abilities to bring to your section.

The event will start at 9:00am till 3:00pm at the Cumberland Heritage Village Museum (2940 Old Montreal Road Cumberland, ON K4C 1G3). Please dress for the weather, bring your own lunch, water bottle and camp chair. We will be following all Scouts Canada Stage 4 protocols including social distancing and necessary sanitation requirements throughout the day.

Cost to attend this event is $20.

Unlike previous ScoutCons in Voyageur Council, this day will include communal sessions in the morning for all participants. In the afternoon, there will be a host of 15 minute sessions offered through our Skills Fair, and participants will be able to take up to 6 sessions (with 5 minute breaks between each session). Participants don't need to register for these sessions beforehand as they will all be offered mutliple times, though each session in each timeslot will have a maximum of 10 participants.
