1st Golden Scouts/Beaver Colony expands to include Wolf Cub Pack

Children's clubs to expand

Julian England


The 1st Golden Scouts Beaver Colony is pleased to announce that this year it will also be running a Wolf Cub Pack.

Leader Mark Baxendale states “last year was a very successful year for the Beaver colony and we wanted to establish the Cub Pack to ensure that some of our older Beavers are able to continue in scouting.”

Beaver and Cub meetings will be held in the Legion Hall every Thursday evening from 6pm to 7pm from fall to summer. An exciting program of events and activities is planned for the year including many field trips.

To register your child in the Beaver Colony or the Cub Pack come and meet us at the Community Registration Night at Mount 7 Rec Plex between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Wednesday, September 7th when there will be the opportunity to meet the Leaders and to sign-up.  Alternately interested parents can call Mark Baxendale at 250-344-2365 or Karissa Palletier at 250-344-8960 for more information.

Beavers is open to boys and girls aged between five and seven years old, while Cubs is open to boys and girls aged between eight and 10 years old.

Baxendale is excited that this year a new leader, Julian England, will be joining the 1st Golden Scouts.   England has a long history in scouting in the U.K.  His dream to move to Canada was formed when he attended the World Scout Jamboree in Kananaskis Country when he was a Venture Scout.

If you are interested in becoming a Leader please contact Mark or Karissa at the above telephone numbers.

Scouting welcomes all cultures and religious denominations, and both girls and boys to our membership. By wearing the scout uniform and working as a team, differences are appreciated. Both adults and youth benefit from learning about each other and their unique backgrounds. What’s most important in Scouting is what the youth have in common – a love of the outdoors and helping others as they grow and learn.

Scouts Canada is the country’s leading youth organization and over 74,000 young people enjoy Scout’s Canada programs, which are provided by 23,000 caring and dedicated volunteers.
