FOR OUTSTANDING SERVICE by a youth member

Breanna Bomback joined Scouting at the age of six, and has moved through the different levels of the program.

She recently received Scouts Canada’s Medal of the Maple for outstanding service by a youth member.

As a Scout, Breanna helped at a weeklong Summer Cub camp as an activity leader after which she decided to get more involved in volunteer leadership with the Cubs.

Breanna joined the 1st Comox Skywolves Cub Pack as a “Kim.”

During a five-year period, which included successfully completing her Woodbadge 1 (adult basic leadership training), she progressed to Scouter in Training and to a fully trained leader with the pack.

As well as volunteering at two more summer camps, Breanna has helped plan and run weekly meetings, activities, outings and more than 20 camps totalling in excess of 2,300 hours of community service while still maintaining a 4.0 grade-point average.

A graduate of Vanier Secondary School, Breanna will attend the University of Victoria this fall.
