Drumheller's 1st Scouting club is off to another successful year with high registration.

The group takes kids on camping, team building and hiking adventures to better prepare them for success.Val givenDrumheller Scouts Group Commissoner, Val Given.

"We did phenomenal this year. We more than doubled our numbers of youth in Beavers and Cubs. We have the same amount returning for Scouts this year," explained Group Commissioner, Val Given.

She chalked it up to the Sports Expo at the Badlands Community Facility, where they signed up kids on the spot.

"I think with our leadership team as well, we have changed around the sections a bit, there are different leaders in different sections and it is going to be a great year," continued Given.

The year has many activities planned, including the Beavers sleeping over at the Royal Tyrrell Museum.

"I know the Scouts have planned a Pacific Jamboree which is taking place in BC next summer. They are also working on "Jamboree on the Air" where they will get to sit down and talk to scouts from all over the world on the computer, so they are looking forward to that," said Given.

The Cubs will also be partaking in many different camping and canoe trips throughout the year.
