Help Boy Scouts be prepared

Bottle drive will help Scouts with programs and camps

1st Sooke Bottle Drive

Saturday March 9 –

11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Sooke elementary school

 

Since its creation in 1907, Scouting has been about using the outdoors to teach youth about what they can achieve.  In the process they build confidence, leadership, and develop friendships that last a lifetime.

Scouts in Sooke are sponsored by the Royal Canadian Legion #54 and provide Scouting programs for boys and girls from 5 to 17.

They offer the following programs: Beaver Scouts – ages five to seven, Cub Scouts – ages eight to 10, Scouts – ages 11 to 14 and Venturer Scouts – ages 14 to 17.

Sooke Scouts are holding a bottle drive to help support local Scouts attending a variety of camps that build friendships, introduce new outdoor activities, gain valuable leadership skills and self-confidence as well as exciting hands on experiences.

Come by and drop your empties or email the email address below to arrange for pick-ups.

Interested in joining – registration for the Sept. 2012 Scout year is open, contact Leagh at FirstSookeRegistration@shaw.ca.  For more information contact 1Sooke@VictoriaScouts.ca.
