Scouting Week in Canada

In Tumbler Ridge, a number of events were planned for Scouting Week. On Tuesday, February 22nd, you may have noticed a Beaver, Cub or Scout wearing their uniform at school or around town. This is to honour Lord Robert Baden-Powell?s birthday as the founder of Scouting.

Saturday, February 26th is the event you don?t want to miss – the annual ?Kub Kar Races? to be held at the community center fireside lounge. All Beavers, Cubs and Scouts will be racing their handmade racing vehicles on the race track starting at 1:00pm. All are welcome to join in on the fun. Then on Sunday, February 27, the week wraps up with a family swim for all Scouting kids and their families at the pool. We would like to acknowledge the Holy Cross Catholic church and thank them for their continued support as they have been our sponsor for many years.

Scouting builds confidence in kids and strengthens our next generation. If you would like to know more about how you or your kids can become involved in Scouting or more info about Scouting Week, contact Tina Webb at 242-5145.
