 3rd Aurora Scouts

We need your help!   You could provide the best experience a child has each week!  3rd Aurora Scouting needs more Leaders to run these sections in the Fall

  • Beaver (age 5-7) 
  • Leaders,Cub( ages 8-10) 

We also would like to re-open a Scout (10-14) section and have 4 youth waiting for Leaders! Scouts Canada requires us to have a minimum of 3 people to sit on group committee that are not also registered as Leaders in the sections. 

Please consider joining as Group Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, Quartermaster (1 hr meeting /month on average - with only 9 meetings per year). Youth need adults to make this happen. There is a long waiting list for children to join scouting. Youth are eager to get into such a great program! All training provided (on-line with support).

How about Popcorn or Apple day coordinator ( 1 time events). Why not join with a friend? If you can’t join, will you help find someone who would be interested? An adult offspring, grandparent, or neighbour?

Part time leaders and new Canadians welcome!   Please see, or call or email  Cheryl Stoltz at or  905-830-0720
