Scouting, a great program for youth

One of the local Scout groups is holding an open house next weekend, if you have kids, take some time to check it out.

You're invited to attend a Scouting Open House in Victoria on June 26th, from 1:00pm-3:30pm! 1st Douglas Scout Group is hosting an open house at their Scout hall at 3266 Glasgow Avenue, in Victoria BC. This event is open to Scouters and non-Scouters of all ages, and will include activities and games for everyone, information displays, free food, games, and prizes. If you would like to help with this event, as an activity host, please contact Rick Wells at (250)388-5507, or Please feel welcome to attend, as a helper or guest, and show your Scouting Spirit!

I am involved with the 3rd Douglas group which meets at the Scout Hall on Marigold and I would love to see more youth involved.

Scouting is open to all youth - boys and girls.    People worry about youth not getting outside enough, Scouting is the best program out there for getting the kids in the wilderness and learn about the outdoors.   In our group the Scouts (ages 10-14) spend about 20 nights a year camping.

Scouting is still one of the most affordable programs for youth.

This is the building:
