EverythingGP, Aug 28, 2021: The 3rd Grande Prairie Venturer Scout Group decided to find the silver lining during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns, by working together.
Venturer Advisor Joe Anderson says the group of six Venturer Scouts, between the ages of 15 and 17, met weekly, and outdoors in-person when it was safe to do so.
“It was certainly a challenge to run the program through the pandemic. The good thing was it challenged our creativity and brought us to lots of new ideas. We tried a lot of new things, and found ways to have (fun),” said Anderson.
“Everybody learned pretty fast that it’s pretty lonely sitting in your home by yourself. It just takes a little bit of courage and a notion of trying new things.”
