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.
Camp Booking Policy for Non-Scouting Groups
The By-Laws, Policies, and Procedures of Scouts Canada (BP&P) state:
“Scouts Canada properties are for the primary use of Scouts Canada membership. Third party or non-Scouting use must be limited to like organizations for the purposes similar to Scouting. Third parties must fully indemnify and hold Scouts Canada harmless with respect to the usage and provide proof of insurance with Scouts Canada named as an additional insured.”
In order for Non-Scouting groups to book a Scouts Canada facility:
- Must provide proof of at least two million dollars liability insurance for the organization. This proof of insurance must specifically name Scouts Canada as a co-insured member (this can be arranged through your insurance company).
- Must complete and sign the “Organizational Hold-Harmless and Indemnity Agreement”.
