    Developing well-rounded youth, better prepared for success in the world.

    Through our Plan-Do-Review method, Scouts are empowered to learn by doing. With Scouts Canada’s Youth-led programming, youth put leadership and teamwork into play by planning their activities with the guidance of an adult Scouter. The great Scouting adventure allows youth to explore new things, share ideas, learn new skills and create new paths.

    Scouts is filled with a little bit of everything and plenty of opportunities for youth to personally develop in areas including like social, physical, intellectual, character, emotional and spiritual. Along the way Scouts meet new friends, collaborate to achieve goals, and develop self-confidence.
