Welcome to The Canadian Path! Here you’ll find resources that will help you learn more about Scouts Canada’s youth program. These resources will also help you to support your child on his or her Scouting journey.
You’ll find a snapshot of your child’s Section (Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts or Venturer Scouts), the Journey Card that youth and Scouters use to review personal progression at the end of each Scouting Year, a guide and template for pursuing Personal Achievement badges, and a uniform diagram illustrating badge placement.
The Scout Troop
Scouts is for youth ages 11–14. Scouts enjoy outdoor adventures like mountain biking, rock climbing and lots of camping while working together with other young people to provide service to their communities.
For an overview of the Scout Troop, check out our Scouts Section Snapshot.
Personal Achievement badges are designed to allow Scouting youth to acquire skills and knowledge in areas that are of particular interest to them, and to have that development recognized as part of their growth through Scouting. They give your child the opportunity to try something new, and to set achievable goals. Personal Achievement badges are generally pursued individually, and outside of weekly meetings.
The Scout uniform consists of the Scout shirt, tan pants, neckerchief and neckerchief slide. The Scout uniform is available at the Scout Shop nearest you or at scoutshop.ca. The neckerchief and slide will be provided by the Group.
