to the Scouts Section. For youth 11 to 14 years of age.
Scouts is about having fun while gaining value leadership skills and self-confidence. Our Scout Troop enjoys outdoor adventures like mountain biking, rock climbing and lots of camping while working together with other young people to accomplish thrilling challenges. Scouting gives every member a chance to be a leader. It might involve running an activity, organizing a camp, or participating with other young people across your province or Canada in a youth forum.
Scouting promotes activities that encourage youth to:
- express and respond to their own spiritual values and beliefs while showing concern for others
- develop self reliance
- pursue hobbies and personal interests
- develop self discipline and the skills of working cooperatively with others
- cooperate in setting and achieving small group and personal goals
- practise leadership skills
- relate with adults
- be of service to others
- camp, explore the outdoors, and develop good conservation practices
The outdoors is an essential part of the Scout program. Weekend events, extended hikes, no trace camping and seasonal sports opportunities round out the Scout experience. Developing an active, healthy lifestyle is the prime goal.
Scouts can work towards receiving Personal Achievement Badges (PAB) using the Scouts Plan-Do-Review PAB template. These badges are designed to allow youth to explore and expand skills and knowledge in areas that are of particular interest to them. For more information, check out the Guide to Scout Personal Achievement Badges.
For more information, please contact our Scout Leaders.
