Get your kid outside - have them join Scouting

Scouting is a great program that teaches you outdoor skills, leadership, citizenship and personal development.   Here in the Victoria are we have 35 groups that you can join.

Scouting is a program that goes from age 5 to 17 and is available to girls and boys.

  • Kindergarten to Grade 2 - Beavers
  • Grade 3 - 5 Cubs
  • Grade 6 - 8 Scouts
  • Grade 9 - 12 Venturers

I am a Scout leader with 3rd Douglas.  We meet Wednesday evenings at Scout house at 505 Marigold.

This year in the Scout section we will be building mindstorm robots, canoeing, kayaking, sailing, hiking, volunteering on environmental projects, and camping for about 16 nights between now and June.

In the past the scouts have hiked to Cape Scott, canoed the Sayward Forest Canoe route, built model rockets and a lot more.

If you want to know more, come by Scout house on a Wednesday evening
