Schedule

1st Gibsons maintains a public calendar of our events
 
It is up to the individual section leaders to maintain their calendar, so if your section leader tells you one date but the calendar says please ask them for confirmation.

1st Gibsons Scouting follows the school year (Sept-June).  We break for Christmas and some sections don't meet during spring break. 
 
Within each year there are five annual fund raisers:
 
Popcorn
The youth are invited to sell Scout popcorn door to door. The youth are provided order forms and a booklet explaining the prizes available to be won.  The youth collect pre-orders and pre-payment.  After all the forms are collected the popcorn is delivered to the youth for delivery to the customer.
 
Apple Day
Apple day is a one day event where youth sell apples, by donation, in several locations around Gibsons.
 
Christmas Tree Sales
Parents and Youth sell Christmas trees in front of Home Hardware on the weekends leading up to Christmas.
 
Bottle Drive
Shortly after New Years, we conduct a one day bottle drive. We have well established routes. Parents with trucks or trailers are invited to help drive, while other sort and package in the Home Hardware parking lot.

Manure Sale
Our biggest, and funniest, fund raiser of the year!  Parents, Youth and Leaders bag manure Monday - Thursday and we sell it all on Saturday.  Each family does one shift during the week. Many hands make light work !
