Welcome Back to Scouting
The wait is over.
Scouts Canada is excited to welcome you back to outdoor Scouting in September. We hope you are as pumped as we are to embark on NEW and SAFE outdoor adventures.
For those who may not have seen our previous communications, Scouts Canada has developed a step-by-step approach to the return to Scouting that is guided by your feedback as well as provincial ministries of education recommendations and follows the same step by step approach school boards are planning for the return to school. Our goal is to ensure we are doing our part to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19 among our youth, Scouters, parents, volunteers and others while providing a fun and engaging Scouting experience for our youth.
Under our safety guidelines and following provincial recommendations, starting September 1, 2020, Scouts Canada will be moving to STAGE 2 of our step-by-step return to Scouting. This means, in-person Scouting will be allowed, but outdoors only and with a maximum number youth participation. This measured return to in-person activity mitigates the risk of COVID-19 transmission for our youth and volunteers, with participation being completely voluntary. We believe that members should come back to Scouting when they and their families feel comfortable.
It is for this reason that Scouts Canada is extending membership to all of our current members from September 1 to December 31, 2020 and we are offering a FREE TRIAL for non-members who wish to try Scouting. What does that mean exactly?
- ALL members from the 2019-2020 Scouting year can participate in Scouting until December 31 without having to pay a registration fee.
- Should you choose to not participate in fall Scouting, you will retain ALL membership benefits, including the opportunity to guarantee your spot for our 2021 Scouting year before registration opens to the public.
- Members can invite their friends to try Scouting through our FREE TRIAL. There is no limit to the number of meetings a friend can attend – they can participate for free until December 31, 2020.
