Scouting at Christ Church

Scouts Canada is the country's leading co-ed youth organization. For more than 100 years, we have brought a world of adventure, outdoor experience and friendship to 17 million Canadian youth in Beavers, Cubs, Scouts.

 

Locally, Scouting has enjoyed a long tradition at Christ Church with programs in existence for over 60 years.  For many of these years, our own Ted Walter has been involved, most recently as the Group Commissioner. Ted has now been appointed a Member-at-Large for 2nd Brampton and in his place, Jean Redl has been appointed Group Commissioner.  Jean also has been a member of Christ Church for many years.  Please join us in congratulating both Ted and Jean on these appointments. Our young people are blessed by these dedicated volunteers and all those who volunteer in the Scouting programs.
