Registration for 2021 Scouting Year
Online registration for the 2021 Scouting year will be open on October 24th (early registration for returning members); registering a new child or a returning child in a new group will be possible starting November 16th.
Registration has been extended for those families registered for the 2019/2020 Scouting Year - your registration is extended to December 31st 2020.
New registrations: new prospective members can sign up for a four month free trial starting September 2020 and then can register this fall to continue the program in 2021. Please contact our group registrar for more details.
All programmes began in September 2020* and run through
to approximately the end of the school year plus additional camps and special events in the summer, with regular meetings resuming in September. You can join at any time during the year, subject to availability of space. 2021 Scouting year registration will be valid until December 31st 2021.
*for New Members: if a new member registers for the upcoming Scouting year they will be able to start attending meetings immediately following their successful registration. Not sure if Scouting is for you? Try Scouts out until December - for free. If interested in a free trial please contact our group registrar.
Please note: registration is on a first come first served basis. To ensure your first priority, it is advised that you register early. The section will close when the maximum number of participants has been reached - No Exceptions. Maximum number of youth per section must comply with Scouts Canada regulations and is determined by the number of available volunteers. If you are not able to register your youth please contact the 1st Bolton Scouts - Group Registrar to make sure your youth is placed on a wait list. Future spots may open up if more people volunteer to help out.
All Scouting registration can now be done quickly and easily online using a credit card.
Can we still pay with cash? If paying with cash, parents can purchase a pre-paid Visa card in cash and use the pre-paid card to complete their child's online registration. We also support Interac® transfer (please note CIBC does not permit this function) and PayPal®.
What if we do not have Internet access at home? Certain homes may not have Internet access, but most businesses, community centers, libraries and restaurants do. If Internet is not available at a parent's place of work, they can also ask a family member, friend or neighbour to borrow access so they can register.
If you have trouble registering, here are a couple of helpful articles on the process:
