Monday Scouts at Williamsburg Public School

This challenging outdoors program is designed to put your teenager in charge, planning and executing a program guided by national standards.  
The program usually includes competitive games, skills building, exploration of the world, conservation, and fun activities.
At the end of the evening, the Scouts will be called to alert, lower the Canadian flag and recite a standard closing.
On scheduled nights, Scouts will be visiting places of interest, hiking at Heber Down Conservation Area and having visitors come into the gymnasium.
