SCOUTSabout is everything Scouting knows about programming for children ages 5 - 10, but packaged differently. Offered in 3-month modules, SCOUTSabout is run after school in schools or community centres, or sometimes during school breaks and summer vacation. Participants enjoy the same kinds of activities as Beavers and Cubs, but with a focus on structured play and learning by doing less the traditional aspects of uniform, ceremony or badge programs.
SCOUTSabout participants sometimes sign up for a second module, and in some cases decide to enrol in a core program...because they've had so much fun!
Last year 2700 kids participated in SCOUTSabout programs in BC, Alberta, and Ontario.
For girls and boys 5 to 10 years of age - Junior (5 - 7), Senior (8 - 10).
