There will be information about the different age groups, such as Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Venturers, and the activities and registration costs involved.The Scouts are also in need of new adult leaders to step up and help out with the group, to enable the activities to continue to be held in the coming year, said Scouts leader Allen Klassen, especially for the Beavers age group.

The Weyburn Scouts will hold their first all-ages camp of the new season on Sept. 20-22 at South Weyburn School, which is now owned by the Weyburn Wildlife Federation, on Highway 35 south of Weyburn.

Klassen noted the Wildlife Federation has partnered with the Weyburn Scouts for this camp. The Scouts will set up tents on the grounds and there will be a range of activities for the youth to take part in.

The camp will be open for all levels of Scouts, from Beavers on up to Venturers.

The Scouts first bottle drive of the season will be held on Saturday, Oct. 19, and this will be a fundraiser to help the Scouts hold activities like the campout.
