Scouts is a Great Adventure!
Scouts Canada is the country’s leading youth organization. For more than 100 years, we have brought a world of adventure, outdoor experience and friendship to 17 million Canadian youth. In the greater Kingston Area (what we call Loyalist Area) we are proud to have over 400 active members of Scouting, and we want to GROW, GROW, GROW!!

The Scouting program is open to all youth ages 5 and up, boys and girls! We need help from all members of the family to ensure Scouting if offered to all! The “start up” cost to join the average Group will be about $235 to $300 (for a year long program starting on 1 September). This fee would include the National Registration Fee, the cost of uniform, and sometimes some program fees will be included. With about 40 weekly meetings, a minimum of 4 weekend camps, and 4 weekend day adventures – this represents a minimum of 312 hours of time offered at the Beaver-Scout (5-7 years old) level in our program, or a cost of a little less than $1 per hour. Try to find a more inexpensive, high quality program anywhere else!! You can’t!
We understand that some families are more challenged than others financially. We want every child to join, even if their parents do not have the financial means. Please speak to a “Commissioner” about the “No One Left Behind” program, or if living in Kingston you may also contact PROkids.
The Scouting program is delivered by Volunteers from our communities. That means you! Nobody is really a super-Scouter. Those people are myths and legends. We are regular people who come home from work and put on our uniforms and give a few more hours of our time to help others. We need average people with a great desire to make our world a better place for our children and grandchildren! Please consider joining us and embarking on your own Scouting Adventure!!!
