The North Grenville Scouts —comprising Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Venturers, and Rovers — would like to thank the North Grenville community, businesses, and organizations for their support over the 2019-2020 year. The Fall brought many outdoor adventures to all sections, with weekly meetings, outdoor Fall and Winter camps, hikes, and a variety of community-based and fundraising activities.

In the Spring and through the Summer, following Scouts Canada’s response to the CV19 pandemic, Scouting activities in North Grenville switched to “at home” activities; sections emphasized family-based outdoor activities and skills, and, for some sections, meetings were held via videoconferencing platforms, once a week, or as necessary. Scouts Canada activities started again September 1, and are aligned with Provincial health standards and safety requirements.

For community members involved in Scouts and families interested in joining Scouts:

  • For youth already registered in Scouts Canada, membership is extended until December 31, 2020. There will not be a registration fee during this time.
  • If your youth is currently registered in Scouting but does not wish to participate during the Fall, he/she retains all membership benefits, including a guaranteed spot for 2021 before registration opens to the public.
  • Scouts Canada is offering a free trial for non-members who wish to try Scouting; non-members can participate in as many meetings as they wish during the period September 1- December 31, 2020.

If your youth is interested in joining Scouts in North Grenville, please contact us at ngscouts@gmail.com. We are also on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/NGScouting. NG Scouts welcomes any community member who might like to join as a Scouter (leader) for the upcoming year. Training is provided. More information about Scouts Canada can be found at https://www.scouts.ca.
