“Great 8 Challenge” crests have arrived

by on Jan.02, 2022, under Beavers, Cubs, Scouts

 

This crest was earned by some youth in the spring of 2021 – who completed at least 5 of the 8 challenges.  

The crest comes in pieces and this picture shows the final product.

This crest can be sewn on camp blankets, clothing, wall hanging or kept in a keepsake box.

Scouter Margot (Bubbles/Bubba-Baloo) ordered these and will provide to Contact Scouters to distribute to qualifying youth.

The Fall 2021 Challenge: Around the World in 60 Days

by on Oct.12, 2021, under Beavers, Cubs, Group, Scouts

2021Over the next eight-weeks, our Sections will visit eight different countries, develop new skills through fun challenges and support their communities and the planet by leading exciting “Scouts for Sustainability” activities.

With the help of a symbolic transporting compass, Scouting members can ping around the globe to different destinations quickly.   In each country they are faced with a challenge or a fun activity to champion as a Section. Once completed, the Section can collect a crest for that week and eventually curate the full composite crest!

Each week, Scouting mmbers will acquire a “GADGET” in pursuing their adventures; these items will be used in the activity for Week 8: Contraption Action, so they will be holding on to their GADGETS!

Changes to Scouts Canada’s procedure for “Refunds” and “No One Left Behind (NOLB)” support

by on May.04, 2018, under Beavers, Cubs, Group, Scouts

Previously if you wanted a registration fee refund or support through the No One Left Behind (NOLB) program, you  were to e-mail either
nolb@scouts.ca or
refunds@scouts.ca .
These requests with all the other requests that come in to the Online Service Centre (OSC) have to be triaged, (separated by type and region of Canada) so as to get the requests to the right person in the right place.  The automation in the new procedure will:

  • free up people who triage,
  • speed response time, and
  • capture more information up front.

With the new procedure, if you e-mail either of those addresses you will get a response something like

Hello

Thank you for your email.

As we have moved to a new process to help streamline subsidy requests, this email address is no longer being monitored.

To begin your subsidy application, please use the online submission form here: https://help.scouts.ca/hc/en-ca/requests/new

We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your cooperation.

It starts with Scouts!

 

Thanks

The Computer That’s A Scouter

The new procedure is:

  • go to https://help.scouts.ca/hc/en-ca/requests/new , or
  • go to http://MyScouts.ca select the “Support” link in the small banner at the very top of the page which will take you to http://help.scouts.ca and then select the “Submit a Request” link in the upper right hand part of the page, or
  • go directly to https://help.scouts.ca and then select the “Submit a Request” link in the upper right hand part of the page, or
  • go to http://24th.ca and select the “Submit a Scouts Canada Request … “ link at the bottom of the page. It will take you directly to the “Submit a Request” form.

Once you get to the new request submission form you can enter:

  • your e-mail address if you are not logged in
  • a short subject title, e.g “Request for Joey Doe”
  • a description e.g. “I would like to get a refund of Joey’s fee for registration with the 24th Kitchener
  • a support type that has a dropdown list that includes:
    • Refund Requests, and
    • Subsidies (No One Left Behind)
  • a region specification that has a dropdown list, select: “Ontario – Central”

then press “submit”

 

Yours in Scouting
