1st Neck Point Scouting Group, Nanaimo



Why do you do fundraising activities?

The Neck Point Scouting group has many youth registered and we operate four large groups throughout the year. Our funding comes in part from Scouts Canada through the registration fees that our youth pay, and is supplemented with the fund raising activities that each group hold throughout the year. Our fundraising allows us to do more activities and to supplement the Scouts canada program with caps, equipment (such as canoes, life jackets) and with appropriate training for our leaders and venture scouts to provide a safe environment for each activity. No fundraising activity is mandatory, but the youth all work together on fundraising activities to build their team ethic and to share in the benefits.
