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
Registration Open (For Returning Members)
Registration for the 2022 Scouting year is open for those who already have youth enrolled in Scouts Canada. (Registration for new members will open on September 15th.) 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.
