Scouts Canada Frequently Asked Questions
The Scouting program offers tremendous value to youth and their parents.
Scouting parents consistently give our programs high scores for value, and Scouting costs significantly less than many other youth activities. Add the fact that many Scouting Groups and camps are active year-round and the result is even greater value for dollar. The true cost to support a robust Scouting program is significantly higher than the registration fee that we charge.
This is where Scout Popcorn fundraising, retail sales through our Scout Shops, donations and sponsorships contribute towards keeping Scouting affordable. These same revenue sources also support Scouts Canada’s No One Left Behind program to ensure that financial barriers do not prevent kids from participating in great Scouting adventures.
Scouts Canada engages youth, involving them throughout their formative years in a non-formal educational process, using a specific Method that makes each individual the principal agent of his or her development as a self-reliant, supportive, responsible and committed person. The Scout Method is an approach unique to Scouting throughout the world (World Association of the Scouting Movement’s Scouting: An Educational System) and includes each of the following seven elements:
- Scout Law and Promise
- Learning by Doing
- The Team System
- A Symbolic Framework
- Personal Progression
- Adult Support
