2018 Scout-Guide Week

For more than four decades, Scouts and Guides have celebrated Scout-Guide Week nationwide. We celebrate this week to honour the birthday of Lord Robert Baden-Powell (Feb. 22), who, in 1907 started the Scouting Movement, and his wife, Lady Olave Baden-Powell, the World Chief Guide. This is a time of celebration for Scouts Canada and Girl Guides of Canada – a time when two world-wide youth Movements honour their heritage and a time to recognize the good work both Movements do for the community. Across Canada celebrations include camps, expeditions and mall displays, special banquets and parades.

Christmas Treecycle

treecycleThe Kamloops Area Scouts Groups will, for the 4th year running, pickup and recycle your Christmas Tree. This year Christmas Tree Curbside Pickup & Recycling will be on Saturday January 6th, 2018.

Thank you to everyone that supported Treecycle

This year some of the trees collected went to the BC Wildlife Park. The trees are used to liven up the habitat for some animals and as snacks for others!
