Looking for Beaver and Cub leaders

Rowntree has a long history of supporting our own Scouting groups going back many decades. The pandemic has definitely been challenging but this fall we’re rejuvenating  our Beaver group ( ages 5-7) and Cub group ( 8-10) . Both groups are Co-Ed. Scouts Canada provides the program and training, now we need to find leaders. We’re looking for male or female leaders over the age of 18 who are interested in challenging and having fun with our youth. If you have questions you can either check out the Scouts Canada web site (https://www.scouts.ca/ )  or call Kim at  519 709 9744.  Being a leader in Scouting is very rewarding. Police check is mandatory.
