For over 100 years, Scouts have experienced countless “firsts” through outdoor adventure and fun. Scouting youth have a strong sense of civic responsibility and environmental awareness. From food and clothing drives to shoreline clean-ups and maintenance, Scouts encourages youth to give back.

Our 2nd Highland Creek Scout Group gives kids something fun to look forward to by getting outside, connecting with friends and sharing new experiences. Scouts build resiliency and are motivated to blaze their own trail in our community while building confidence and skill. We are excited to be meeting outdoors this year connecting with nature and each other in a socially distanced and responsible way.

Leading fun adventures with their friends for the month of October, Scouts have encountered wildlife while on hikes, investigated plant life and created lifelong memories.

Interested in supporting 2nd Highland Creek Scouts? There are fundraising opportunities throughout the year to support us in all we do! From Scout Popcorn to our eco-drive and donations, there are many ways to get involved. Until November 30, Scout Popcorn is a flavourful way to fund more great adventures and give kids something to look forward to. Plus, all net profit will be going back to Scouts Canada’s No One Left Behind subsidy program, helping youth facing economic barriers experience the benefits of Scouting. See
