Scouts Canada – Chinook Council Annual Report
Looking back on the Scouting year, Chinook Council can be proud of many accomplishments. We made a positive impact on the lives of more than 7,200 young people across Southern Alberta, supported by a dedicated team of more than 3,600 volunteers and a small corps of employees. For the fifth time in six years, we increased the number of youth who participated in Scouting. Chinook had almost 800 Scouts and Scouters participate in the Canadian Scout Jamboree at Camp Woods and hosted 169 pre and post-Jamboree visitors to Camp Gardner. We also supported the Senator Buchanan Winter Adventure and outdoor experiences like: Iron Scout, Cub-o-Rama, Survivorman Challenge, Tom Pratt Camp, Great Escape, Scoutrees, Area soap box derbies. Members also participated in the 14th World Scout Moot. Thank you for all you have done and will continue to do to support Scouting in Southern Alberta. Yours in Scouting, Tracey StockSpencer JankeDoug MacDonald Council CommissionerCouncil Youth Commissioner Council Executive Director To meet the rest of the Council Service Team, please visit A Message from the Chinook Council

Scouts of all ages have fun and learn at activities throughout the year Kids in Scouts have fun adventures discovering new things and experiences they wouldn’t have anywhere else. Soap Box Derbies, Kub Kar Rallies and activities like Survivorman also help Scouts of all ages learn skills that will help them throughout their lives. Fun with a purpose
Do a Good Turn Every Day During Good Turn Week in April, thousands Of Scouts across Canada got together to do a good turn for someone else. Here, Council Youth Commissioner Spencer Janke and the Council Youth Network make sandwiches for the Mustard Seed in Calgary.
First Aid Training 74 Scouts and Scouts completed Standard and Wilderness First Aid Working with Inside Out Adventures, we are now able to provide affordable first aid training. Avalanche Safety Training 154 Scouts and Scouters learned about avalanche safety at the Senator Buchanan Winter Adventure at Camp Impeesa in February. A Commitment to Safety
Hannah and Michael from Chinook Council represent Scouts Canada as Youth Spokesperson. Since the launch of the program in 2010, Scouts Canada youth from across the country have shared their passion for Scouting with the country through hundreds of media interviews and campaigns that focus on Registration, the Uniform Launch, Good Turn Week, Canadian Scout Jamboree and Camping Skills. You can read some of those stories here. Scouts Canada puts a youthful foot forward
Volunteer Support Scouters are the Narrators of the Journey. The Youth are the ones who decide to "Challenge the Dragon" or "Go for the Loot.“ More than 3600 volunteers give their time every week 1/3 of our Scouters are new volunteers every year The 3 main reasons people become Scouters – they are parents of Scouts, they are former Scouters or the sponsors of their Scout group asked them 766 volunteers completed basic training – 685 took advantage of our new on-line learning resources
Volunteer Recognition 1264 Outstanding Service Awards – including 8 Silver Acorns (the highest award to a Canadian Scouter) In addition, Scouters were recognized for: 2 Awards for Fortitude 1 Certificate of Gallantry 3 Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medals 372 long service pins 75 Long Service Medals – for 10 years of faithful, effective service 23 Other Awards 27% of Volunteers received an award for Outstanding Service in 2013

The flood of 2013 The flood affected many communities in Southern Alberta It caused extensive damage at Camp Gardner and affected communities supporting many Scouting groups, including High River, Canmore, Turner Valley, Black Diamond, Calgary, Crowsnest Pass, Pincher Creek, the Siksika Nation, Lethbridge, & Medicine Hat
The flood of 2013 The 10th Calgary lost the historic Sara Scout Hall. Rebuilding the Sara Hall is now being lead by Empire Custom Homes. Support from across Chinook Council and from Telus, empowered the 1st High River to participate in CJ'13 despite the destruction of their hall and loss of personal equipment.
The flood at Camp Gardner Thanks to tremendous efforts of our staff and volunteers and the community, including the LDS Relief Society, and a work crew from Schlumberger Canada (Red Deer) through YYC Helps, we were able to have Camp Gardner operational by July 1st for its summer program including our pre and post Jamboree tours. The pool was destroyed. Two longhouses, the obstacle course and the Nature Centre were lost. Katimavik and 2 service buildings needed repairs.
The flood at Camp Gardner Equipment strewn through the forest was recovered, repaired, and returned to service. Collicutt Lodge, 3 longhouses, the archery range, and the Ceremonial Campfire were undamaged. Gardner will continue to support great, safe Scouting adventures for many more years.
Camp Gardner Rebuild We have much to rebuild. The Nature Centre and Obstacle Course were destroyed by the flood and many areas in the camp were changed forever by the flood. We will be working to plan the future of the camp this coming year. Once we have the final settlement from our insurer we will be working with the Alberta Government and the Red Cross to investigate our funding options to rebuild the camp. We will have to work with the County of Rocky View and Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resources to plan where structures will be located.

How the Scout Foundation helps Camping – The foundation contributes $27.36 per youth member to help operated the Bert Sheppard Scout Reservation which includes Camps Apistotoke, Gardner and Impeesa Group & Area Support – $18.75 per youth member is contributed to help support our Area Support Teams, Area Support Managers, the Council Youth Network and the Child & Youth Safety Team. These funds also help us start new groups and initiate outreach projects like the Calgary Young Offender Centre and Woods Homes. Volunteer Support – The Foundation grant provides $7.75 per volunteer to subsidize volunteer screening, training and recognition. Without the grant, we could pay for police record checks, Wood Badge 1 woggles for e- learners or provide outstanding service awards. No One Left Behind families wouldn’t be able to afford to join Scouting without the support of our Foundation. The grant pays for membership fees, uniforms and activity fees.
