Scouts Canada, the country’s leading youth organization, offers challenging programs for boys, girls and youth age 5-26 in thousands of individual groups in most cities and towns across Canada.
Scouts is about having fun while gaining value leadership skills and self-confidence.
Scouts enjoy 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.
Blaze a Trail
Scouts blaze their own trails. The possibilities before you are vast, which is why some of Canada’s greatest trails are used as the symbolic framework for Scouts on The Canadian Path.
Each trail represents a Program Area. Explore all of the different trails over your Scouting Year. You will share adventures for the different Program Areas as a Troop, or within smaller teams called Patrols.
