Westmount Scouts Travel to Namibia

Two St Andrew's Rovers, Brian Bevand and Kendra Girdwood and 2ND Westmount Venturer, Nathan Butcher will be spending six weeks this summer in Africa participating in an international development project. They will be travelling to the former South West Africa, now known as Namibia, on the southern Atlantic coast of Africa. Organized in conjunction with the Namibian Scouting Association a group of about thirty youth from the Montreal area will be building ventilated latrines for pre-schools in the town of Okahanja located north of the nation's capital, Windhoek. Younger members of Westmount Scouting have contributed gift boxes for the Rovers and Venturer to take to the children in the schools.
The costs of the project will be covered by the Scouting World Brotherhood but the participants must cover their own expenses. The Westmount trio has been fundraising selling t-shirts, hoodies, badges and other items. They have recently received a donation thanks to an article that appeared in the Westmount Independent on March 26.

More than 8,000 at Scouts Canada Centennial Jamboree

More than 8,000 scouts, leaders and volunteers from as far away as Africa started arriving Thursday at Quebec's Camp Tamaracouta, near Saint-Jérôme, for the Canadian Jamboree celebrating scouting's centennial year.

It's been 100 years since Lord Baden-Powell ran an experimental camp for 20 young London boys from different social backgrounds on Brownsea Island off the south coast of England.

There are now 78,000 scouts registered in Canada.

Enrolment reached its peak in the 1950s, than declined, according to Neil MacKinnon, leader of the 2nd Westmount troop. But he now sees a resurgence of interest.

"What with more and more people wanting to get active, I find that our numbers have increased, and a lot of places across Quebec have increased in numbers too," he said.

Scouts from around the world have come for the jamboree at Camp Tamaracouta.

"We have scouts from Ireland, England, Australia and even Africa," said Therese Beaulieu, a volunteer with Scouts Canada.
