The 1st Manotick Scout Group was formed with community support in 1921 and has operated uninterrupted for over 100 years. They hold Charter number 32, making them one of the longest continuously running Scout Groups in Canada. Scouts learn skills for life, self reliance, leadership, active healthy living and perform community service.
In Manotick and Riverside South, 1st Manotick Scout Group offers programs for youth from 6 to 18 years old. They are looking for adult volunteers to help youth have adventure, fun, learn new outdoor skills and connect with nature. Their Beaver Scout section has a waiting list of over 15 children unable to join due to a lack of volunteers, and their Scout Troop needs adult volunteers to help Scouts learn new skills.
If you are interested in helping as a Scout Leader, previous participation with Scouting is helpful, but not necessary. Scout Leader and skills training is provided. There are no membership fees for adult volunteers, and the time commitment is flexible, typically two hours a week. Adult volunteers are required to complete Scouts Canada stringent volunteer screening, and safety training. Want to step forward? Contact Group Commissioner Rod Wilson firstname.lastname@example.org.
