Bring a Parent Week

01/01/2016 - 9:00am - 01/31/2016 - 11:30am

We've all had success using Bring a Friend evenings and events to introduce more youth to the Scouting experience, so why not try the same technique with parents?


Bring a Parent Week is a chance to have parents join-in their child's program for an evening and to tell them about opportunities to get involved.

·        Do they have first aid knowledge?

·        Are they good with numbers?

·        Handy in the kitchen?

·        Perhaps they are a Do-It-Yourself magician?

Parents all have useful skills and they can volunteer to help in many ways, whether they help out on a regular basis or just at special events or camps. It is easier to get parents to help with things they are good at.


To help you, Scouts Canada has produced an attractive invitation post card that Scouts of all ages (starting with Beavers) can take home to invite parents to a special activity.


Don't have a Bring a Parent Week activity planned yet? Don't worry. It isn't too late. Plan your activity for any time.  To help you, we have attached outlines for family fun nights for Beavers/Cubs and Scouts.

You may pick up the postcards the Service Centre. If you can't make it in to pick them up, we'll mail them to you. Just contact your Area Support Manager.


If you need help planning a Bring A Parent night, please contact your Area Commissioner, Area Youth Commissioner or Area Support Manager.


Scouts Canada, the country’s leading youth organization, offers challenging programs for boys, girls and youth age 5-26 in thousands of individual groups in most cities and towns across Canada.
