There will be an Informational and Sign Up Meeting for Spiral Scouts at Gwen’s house in Kalispell Sunday, August 25th from 6:30-7:30pm
Spiral Scouts is inclusive of all faiths, ethnic backgrounds and learning capabilities and there are no specific religious views presented by the program, rather it is all about respecting the Earth and ALL the livings beings that make their home here. There has been a huge response to this program and we are really excited about the potential in this area.
The address is 1415 Whalebone Drive in Kalispell. Spiral Scouts is an alternative Scouting program in which boys and girls of all faiths work, learn and grow together.
It is an interactive program with parents participating in the meetings, helping with projects and assisting with outings and field trips. There are Badges the Scouts can work towards just like other Scouting programs and these include things like Astronomy, Birding, 4 levels of Camping, Cooking, Drama, 4 different types of Community Service, Gardening, Geology, Ecology, Hiking, Fire Safety, Music, Nutrition, Painting, Photography, Sculpture and Swimming, just to give you some examples.
There are also Awards the Scouts can receive for things like Innovation, Kindness, Leadership, Special Achievement, Peace, Perfect Attendance, Recycling and Distinguished Service. The Badge requirements build as the age groups advance so most badges are available in different forms to all age groups.
We will be getting all the Scouts, Volunteers and Leaders Signed Up, all the Yearly dues collected, deciding on a name for our Charter and figuring out what Day, Time and Place we are going to meet. We will also be going over things like, if we want uniforms (there are suggested uniforms), how often we want to meet, what the dues will be, who wants to lead what age groups and any other questions people might have. Please let your friends and other family members know about this opportunity.
I know many of us have wanted a Children’s Program of some kind for a long time. There are several other Spiral Scouts groups in Montana and they are doing great. I believe Spiral Scouts is a great program. It has been around since 2001 and has spread through Canada, the US and Europe. Please consider joining with your child or children or even participating as a Volunteer or Leader if your children are already grown. Help us make Spiral Scouts a huge success here in the Kalispell area!Please email me or call me at 406-212-9334 if you have more questions or concerns.Thanks!
