Adventures in Prince Rupert

April 20, 2018


“Part of Scouts is you get to be with kids. You can teach them some life lessons, to be kind and help each other out, and you can teach them outdoors things, survival, what they don’t normally get.” – Group Commissioner of 11thPrince Rupert, Jeroen Gerritsen

When Jeroen came to Canada from Holland, it didn’t take long for him to discover the adventures offered by Scouting. Attending Scout meetings with his sons, Jeroen soon became a Scouter and later stepped up to become Group Commissioner. Eight years later, he’s helping to keep the Scouting adventures strong in Prince Rupert, BC.
