Make a Donation, Make a Difference!

The Chinook Council is a charitable organization committed to providing the youth of southern Alberta with rich, unique, accessible Scouting opportunities that promote character development and responsible citizenship. Every year, we aim to grow our program by reaching out to more youth in more communities in our region. While membership, camp, and event fees off-set the cost of running our programs, they do not cover the cost entirely. Fundraising initiatives and donations play a significant role in our program delivery and our ability to introduce Scouting to those less fortunate. Your support makes a difference!
