Values

Scouts builds leaders and prepares Canada’s young people for future success through a youth-led program where they take on challenges that help develop their abilities to think critically, to plan, to innovate and; to use information in an original way. Rooted in the Scout law, youth are taught to be positive and trustworthy; embracing values like kindness and acceptance to make meaningful contributions to creating a better world.

The Scout Method

Scouts Canada engages youth, involving them throughout their formative years in a non-formal educational process, using a specific Method that makes each individual the principal agent of his or her development as a self-reliant, supportive, responsible and committed person. The Scout Method is an approach unique to Scouting throughout the world (World Association of the Scouting Movement’s Scouting: An Educational System) and includes each of the following seven elements:

  • Scout Law and Promise
  • Learning by Doing
  • The Team System
  • A Symbolic Framework
  • Nature
  • Personal Progression
  • Adult Support

The Scout Promise

On my honour;
I promise that I will do my best;
To do my duty to God and the Queen;
To help other people at all times;
and to carry out the spirit of the Scout Law.

The Scout Law

A Scout is helpful and trustworthy,
Kind and cheerful,
Considerate and clean,
and Wise in the use of all resources.
