New equipment for Prince Rupert Scouts through Community Investment funding from Port of Prince Rupert

The next time that the 11th Prince Rupert Scout Group heads into the outdoors they'll be doing so with some new equipment, provided through funding from the Port of Prince Rupert's Community Investment Fund.

The $11,040 dollars worth of equipment includes new tents and a cargo trailer to haul them in and makes for the first upgrade in supplies in over twenty years.

The funding will help the organization continue to deliver its program  to the youth of Prince Rupert, the local Scouting group has been in place for almost thirty years and offers the chance to participate in a range of activities both indoors and out.

The new equipment will get its first major test later this season when the 11th Prince Rupert Group hosts a Regional Camping excursion to Lucy island, where the group will learn more wilderness survival.

The Port of Prince Rupert's Kris Schumacher highlighted the work of the Prince Rupert scouts to raise funds, which the Port matched as part of the equipment replacement plans.

“Active for 28 years in Prince Rupert, the Scouts are one of the many volunteer-led, non-profit societies that work to improve the quality of life for kids in our community,”  ...  “It was our pleasure to match their fundraising efforts through the Community Investment Fund and help secure the tools they need to continue teaching valuable life skills to local youth.”
