Scouting is on the Rise!
Over the last year, we’ve rolled up our sleeves to make Scouting a more exciting, efficient, supportive and overall engaging experience for our cross-Canada community, and guess what?  It’s working. 

Youth are leaping into more adventures than ever before with updates to our Adventure Standards , and  third-party waivers  now allowing parents to sign on behalf of themselves and their youth. These changes make it even easier for Groups to dive into experiences that only Scouting can offer: once-in-a-lifetime excursions, challenges, triumphs and journeys with friends.
In addition to removing paper processes that can weigh down a Group’s ability to plan adventures, our new approach to nurturing Group Health has allowed Scouters and Groups Commissioners to receive the support they need to facilitate quality programming. With our new Group Commissioner Orientation program, participants have already welcomed an impressive 1,240 more youth into their Groups. And did we mention the program is less than a year old? While we recognize that the Group Support Model continues to evolve, we are encouraged by the outcomes it has delivered so far. With digital support offered through our Group Support Centre, Groups that struggled last year with a decline in membership have already retained more youth in the current Scouting Year. Larger and stronger Groups mean more opportunities for youth, more adventures with peers and good times that roll throughout the year. 
Since the 2019-2020 Scouting Year kicked off, more than a quarter of our Groups have expanded so far, and 210 Groups have already blown passed a 10% increase in membership! On top of new youth that the Scouting community has welcomed this year so far, more youth returned this fall to experience another round of Scouting with their friends.
A new year brings a new wave of potential. Together, we can continue to grow and enjoy the Scouting journey together.
Discover how Scouting youth are able to make a difference and help make meaningful contributions to better the world around them through their Scouting journey.

Great Adventures Start with Scout Popcorn! 
With this year’s  Scout Popcorn   campaign well underway, there are only a few days left for you to head out in your communities and achieve your selling goals  for another year of fun-filled Scouting adventures! 

As Scouts Canada’s top fundraiser,  Scout Popcorn  is a great way for Scouting Groups to fund their activities and excursions throughout the year, while providing youth with confidence and skills that better prepare them for success in the world.

Funds raised through  Scout Popcorn  directly support Scouting activities like  summer camps, jamborees and canoe trips.  Scout Popcorn  also helps make Scouting possible by supporting Scouts Canada’s  No One Left Behind  program .

Check out our selection of Scout Popcorn products here!   If you want to help our youth fundraise, please  contact your local Council Popcorn Coordinator   to order Scout Popcorn today.
