Chinook Council Grows Youth Membership again – 3rd year in a row! More than 7400 members!
Wow!!! Congratulations – to all our volunteers that do so much and make our council the most successful in Canada – 7,400 youth in ~640 sections, ~220 groups and with more than 2,550 Scouters!
The more youth we get into Scouting the bigger benefit to the communities we support, to the overall youth leadership offered to Southern Alberta, and the farther we move on our Scouting mission and vision. We’d love to get past 7500 this year and close to 8000 if we can – we’re still aiming for 10,000 by end 2018.
Thank you to all of you that work so hard to make this happen. With record numbers signing up for summer camp at Impeesa we should see even stronger retention and membership growth in 2016/17.
This is exciting for Chinook, for Scouting and Canadian Youth!
