SCOUTSabout

SCOUTSabout is everything Scouting knows about programming for boys and girls ages 5-10, but packaged differently. Offered in 3-month modules, SCOUTSabout is run after-school in schools or community centres, or sometimes during school breaks and summer vacation.

Participants enjoy the same kinds of activities as Beavers and Cubs, but with a focus on structured play and learning by doing less the traditional aspects of uniform, ceremony or badge programs. SCOUTSabout participants sometimes sign up for a second module, and in some cases decide to enrol in a core program ... because they've had so much fun!

Last year 2,700 kids participated in SCOUTSabout programs in BC, Alberta, and Ontario.
