Scouts Canada - York Headwaters Area
Canadian Path Discussion Group

 

Introducing Scouters Club...

Here’s the info for the First Scouters Club, 2018-2019:
Date/Time: Sunday, August 26, 2018 / 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Location: Thornhill United Church (25 Elgin Street, Markham, ON)


A sharing of York Headwaters Area’ story with Scouting Life...

An interview between Scouting Life and Area Key 3

“The Scouters' Club is a collaboration... We don't want the Scouters to think that the Area leadership is their boss — we're their peers, and we hope that they feel comfortable coming to us for help.”     ~~ Kit Cheng, Area Commissioner (AC)

“The meetings give youth the opportunity for self-development, sharing ideas and making friends... The Canadian Path starts with the youth, so if youth go to Scouters’ Club, they bring their ideas back to their Group and potentially spark a new adventure, or influence the direction of their Group's program.”     ~~ Mandy Chung, Area Youth Commissioner (AYC)

"Scouters’ Club is a cornerstone for the engagement, teamwork and success that the Area has had so far."     ~~ Alyssa McGinnis, Area Support Manager (ASM)
