We currently run programs for beaver, cub, and scout aged youth. To learn more about an individual program, click on the section links to the left.
All our sections meet at the Esquimalt Recreation Centre.
Beavers Ages 5 to 7 – Mondays 6:00PM to 7:00pm
We are accepting registrations for youth in our Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts and Scouts sections.
How much does Scouting cost? As little as possible, but nothing worthwhile is free. Registration fees must be paid annually. Fees for 2019/20 are as follows:
May 1, 2019 – June 30, 2019 – $220 ($20 group fee and $200 national fee)
July 1, 2019 on – $250 ($20 group fee and $230 National fee)
The registration fee is distributed between REMOVE PARENTHESIZED (the group, and local, provincial and) national AND PROVINCIAL councils of Scouts Canada. This fee enables the various levels to develop program resources, provide training and support for the leaders, and provides insurance coverage for all registered members.
REGISTRATION FEE ASSISTANCE FOR FAMILIES IN NEED
Jump start funds are available to families in need, yet those families need to make those connections directly. Scouts Canada is not responsible for any of the paperwork, and does not allocate the local funds available for families. There is a 1-800 number for families, and I believe the application form is available online.
NOLB (No One Left Behind). Developed in 2007, No One Left Behind (NOLB) helps to ensure, through fee subsidization, that every child has an opportunity to experience a local Scouts Canada program. The NOLB expanded in 2011 to fund after school programs, as well as uniforms and camps. The program is aimed at children from families struggling with financial hardship all across Canada – so that they also get the chance to benefit from the values, skills and experiences offered through Scouting. The opportunity to belong to a group that teaches important life skills, self-esteem and community service has a huge impact on these youth. NOLB is not intended to cover 100% of a child’s Scouting membership fee. Families need please go to https://www.scouts.ca/programs/no-one-left-behind.html to start the application process.
FEES for OUTINGS / ACTIVITIES
From time to time, we will go on outings and visits. Sections try to schedule at least one outing per month. Some of these activities may also require additional fees. Sections will advise parents of these opportunities well in advance through notices and/or monthly calendars or newsletters.
