SCOUTS GROUP of st-george de beauce
Scouting is a global youth movement created in 1907 by Lord Robert Baden-Powell, a retired British general in Brownsea.
The movement started in 1908 in Canada. Since then, Scouts Canada is the largest youth organization in the country.
Since its inception more than a 100 years ago, more than 17 million young Canadians have discovered a world of adventure, outdoors and friendships.
Scouts Canada is divided into 10 districts, and the 49th Scout Group of St-Georges-de-Beauce is part of District 9: Rive-Sud de Québec, Beauce and Mauricie.
To personalize our district, it has been named "District des Rivières’’ (Rivers District).
Scouts live fun adventures and unique experiences, all based on learning strong values such as solidarity, mutual support and respect. Throughout their journey, they become resourceful, confident and versatile, well prepared for success.
Scouting offers youngsters adventures they will remember their whole lives.
This year, for the Venturer scouts summer camp (14 to 17 years old) of the 49th group of St-Georges, it was decided to meet the challenge to cross through the Monts Groulx. It will be a 7-day walk (June 20 to 26, 2014), covering 50 km and nearly 3000 meters rise in the reserve of biodiversity Uapishka, located in the Côte-Nord Manicouagan area.
This crossing is considered very difficult by expert adults and the group will survive in complete autonomy. To meet our needs for food, we are proud to count on Happy Yak products!
