For those who may not know of the project, Scouts UK has invited members to send in video’s showcasing their talents. Judges (celebrity of course) will then choose the winners who will become part of the Scout Bright Spark Album. Check out the Bright Spark website here for the full scoop!

I’m sure that there are many more talented Scouts coming soon, but for now I present Kayleigh Walters. Enjoy!

A Little Music for a Friday

Scouts Canada is Co-ed. Who knew!

Well actually lots of people including all the young women in Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Venturers, and Rovers. And lets not forget those leaders of the fairer gender either. With so many girls involved in Scouting it never fails to surprise me when someone asks “you allow girls?” I smile and say “Yes, Scouts Canada has been co-ed since 1992!”

Hamilton Scouting produced a Music Video recently highlighting Girls in Scouting. Besides being well done, some of the action footage features a few of the youth I work with. So lets hear it for some girl power! Have a fun Friday!

Be safe, be prepared, and keep Scouting!
