59th Edmonton Scout Group
About the 59th
The 59th Edmonton was chartered over fifty years ago by the Knights of Columbus at St. Agnes Parish - who saw that there would be a need for a youth organization in the new communities being built to the south of the church. After a few years, the Knights handed off management of the group to the (then-new) Greenfield Community League.
Since that time, the group has grown to serve youth from many communities around Greenfield, including Lansdowne, Royal Gardens, Aspen Gardens, Blue Quill, Duggan, and more. The group currently boasts two Beaver Colonies, two Cub Packs, two Scout Troops, one Venturer Company, and one Rover Crew.
News & Updates
Scout Popcorn is On Sale Again!
With the coming of fall, Scout Popcorn is once again on sale. You can enjoy delicious Papa Jack's popcorn and support Scouting in your community at (almost) the same time!
This year, youth from the 59th may be going door to door in their communities, but Scout Popcorn can also be purchased online. At checkout, you can specify not just our Group, but individual sections -- Cub Packs, Scout Troops, etc. -- to receive credit for the sale, and you can even name a particular youth in the Group to give them the credit for your support.
Scout Coffee is On Sale...Year Round!
Now in its second year, Scout Coffee has shifted from a once-a-year fundraiser to a year-round thing; you can now buy delicious Scout Coffee (and support Scouting in your community in the process) all year long.
As was the case previously, all coffee sales are online. Just make sure to specify our group (and, optionally, a particular youth) at checkout, and you can enjoy your morning cup knowing that you've helped the youth of the 59th embark on new and exciting adventures.
Registration is Open
Registration for the 2022 Scouting year is open for both returning and new members. To register, visit www.scouts.ca/join/ and look for our group, the 59th Edmonton.
A few important notes:
At present, we are only offering Beaver Scouts on Tuesday nights; our Monday night section is inactive until we can expand the number of volunteers (Scouters) able to help out.
New youth who sign up for 2022 between September 15th and the end of 2021 will be able to join in our Scouting activities for the remainder of the year.
Please get in touch with us if you have any questions about the program, the registration process, or fees.
A Scouting Podcast
Scouting Stuff is a podcast about Scouting - mostly from a Canadian perspective, although not exclusively - that was founded by two former members of the 59th. Scouters Ken and Colin met in Beaver Scouts, and stayed with the Scouting program all the way through Rover Scouts.
Scouter Colin is also a former Group Commissioner for the 59th, and Scouter Ken is a Scouter for our Beaver Colonies, Cub Packs, and Scout Troops.
