The Outdoor Adventure Skills program is an invitation for Scouts to try something new—to be outside more, testing themselves with progressive challenges while always staying within their capabilities to stay safe. In short, it’s about having life-changing experiences.
Each Outdoor Adventure Skills pathway is divided into nine stages with a badge awarded for each stage. However, the purpose of the OAS program is not the badge. Rather, the Outdoor Adventure Skills should be seen as tools to support the Plan-Do-Review process.
There are a number of resources available to aid the implementation of the Four Elements of the Canadian Path.Resources →

“I have to say I'm happy when youth tell me they will leave a hockey or soccer practice early (or just skip it) just so that they can join a Troop camp (that they put a lot of effort into planning) instead of the other way around.”Kit, Ambassador Support in Shining Waters
