Program Events

Tree-mendous Trees

Discover BC's forests this May. Tree-mendous Trees of BC is a resource developed by the BC Program Committee for all branch levels to use in their unit programming. This theme encourages units to get active and visible in the community, as well as familiar in nature - identifying trees, learning what roles they play in our ecosystem, and maybe even try their hand at making paper!

This theme combines several program areas, including physical activity, STEM, environmental awareness, exploring local community, and more. Our committee has worked together to design an easy-to-use enrichment resource for Guiders that can be easily applied to unit meetings (or day camps) with content that is relevant across all units in BC covering a subject that many may not have tackled before.

After completing the activities, you can order crests by completing the online Tree-mendous Trees Crest Order form. Crests cost $1.25 each and will be in limited supply. The crest order form will close May 22, 2023.
