Scouts (Age 11-14): Activities

Choose how you would like to explore Scouts activities and adventures!

Scout activities and adventures are organized into six difference Program Areas. Once you have selected a Group and enrolled, you will brainstorm with your Scout Patrol or Troop what kind of activities and adventures (a.k.a. Trail Cards) to explore in each different Program Area in The Canadian Trails Map.

Activities by Program Area

Trail Cards are activities that must all be completed to achieve one Program Area.

The Canadian Path is divided into six Program Areas.

While planning their adventures, Scouts may include more than one Program Area, making the adventure more challenging and encouraging development in all of the SPICES. Trail Cards are a great way for Scouts to map their plan for achieving each of the six Program Areas throughout the year. With new activities to enjoy through fun team building games, Trail Cards help Scouts discover the world around them.
