Apple Day

Scouts Canada Apple Day is a national fundraising opportunity for the youth who represent and participate with Scouts Canada.  Small groups of Beavers (5-7yrs), Cubs (7-9yrs) and Scouts (9-12yrs) ask for a voluntary financial donation from the public to support Scouting in Nepean. The youth then offer apples to say thank-you. Our Scout Groups represent over 550 youth in Nepean.  We pride ourselves on providing programs which focus on the outdoors and helping the youth (ranging from 5yrs – 18yrs) to develop as responsible members of the community with specific focus on teamwork, leadership and being a good citizen.  It is through this specific fundraising activity that we help to finance this active program which runs from September through June each year.

ScouTrees and Nepean

Each spring since 1972, Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts, Venturer Scouts and Rover Scouts have planted trees through the Scoutrees Program.  By planting trees, youth learn about the important role trees have in our lives, the critical need for conservation, the huge impact of climate change and how we can do our part to create a better world.

In Nepean, past plant sites include areas along the Jock River, Hunt Club Rd, and Clarkes Field, and Winding Way.  We hope to plant that many (and more) in the years to come. For more information, http://www.scouts.ca/ca/scoutrees
