Where do registration fees go?
Approximately 10% goes directly to the 137th Ottawa Scouts Group to help cover basic Group costs, such as badges and craft supplies.
90% of your registration fee goes to Scouts Canada to cover the cost of:
- Training materials and resources for leaders
- Planning programs and activities for youth (these must be planned meticulously to ensure compliance with insurance and health standards)
- Publications and handbooks
- Providing service and support to 20 Councils across Canada
- Volunteer servicing expenses
- World Scouting fee
- Risk Management
Dollar for dollar, Scouts Canada’s programs provide significant value to its members. Programs run all year long and include many adventures such as camping trips that kids will remember for a lifetime. Most importantly, Scouting makes a difference in the lives of children, youth and young adults. They are more likely to demonstrate greater self-confidence and optimism about what the future holds. They express a strong sense of civic responsibility and have a desire to “pay back” the community. They become more physically fit, energetic, outgoing, conscientious and compassionate.
Scouts Canada Parent Engagement
There are many ways for parents to participate in the Scouting experience!
Whether you want to participate and help out as a parent helper or work towards becoming a Scouter, Scouts Canada wants to ensure you have the skills necessary to help youth get the most from their Scouting experience.
Important note: In roles where parents will be interacting with youth other than their own child, they may do so as a parent participant 3 – 5 times a year, after which they must complete Scouts Canada’s volunteer screening requirements (PRC, VSS, Code of Conduct and Child and Youth Safety Training).
All parents are encouraged to take the Child and Youth Safety Training on Scouts Canada’s online training Website: myscouts.ca. Log in as yourself and select TRAINING, seen on the top right corner of the website.
