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 territory. 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!

For more information about making a donation or fundraising please contact Leslie Burrows at leslie.burrows@scouts.ca or by phone at 403-283-4993 x220.

Chinook Council Fundraising Activities

Scout Popcorn is the most important fundraising program for Scouts in Calgary, and across Canada. As a youth-led initiative that runs every year from mid-September to mid-October, it promotes confidence, responsibility and good citizenship. Since 1989, Canadian Scouts from all across the country have sold over $100 million of Scout Popcorn with more than half of the money raised doing directly to Scouting activities such as: summer camps, Jamborees, canoe trips, group excursions, and to help subsidize registration fees.

For more information about Scout Popcorn visit http://www.scoutpopcorn.ca or if you have specific Popcorn campaign questions, please contact your area commissioner or local group Popcorn leader.

When you donate to Scoutrees, you support the environment. This national youth program, typically held in spring, encourages and promotes environmental stewardship. By planting trees, youth learn about the important role they have in our lives, as well as the critical need for conservation. Each spring since 1972, thousands of Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts, Venturer Scouts and Rover Scouts have planted over 80 million trees through the Scoutrees Program.
