Set up an Instagram account
If several members in your Group, Area or Council have a ‘good eye’ for taking photos, or if your Group takes lots of quality photos while adventuring or learning, then the visual social network found in Instagram would suit you well. Featuring a “gallery” of the adventures you post, Instagram is a good opportunity to show the world what Scouting in Canada looks like. Images that catch youth and Scouters in action or engaged in learning are effective, especially when youth are visibly taking the lead.
