Welcome Back to Scouting Resources

The wait is over. Scouting is needed now more than ever.

Scouts Canada is excited to welcome you back to Scouting. We have developed a comprehensive set of resources to help Scouters run an exciting program amid COVID-19 and regardless of what STAGE your Council or Group is in. and reassure families that we continue to deliver a fun, educational and safe program for the fall.

An Improved Outdoor Experience

Scouts Canada has developed 12 weeks of play-by-play outdoor meeting scripts for Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.

These templates outline age appropriate activities that follow our STAGE 2 standards while bringing our program to life.


An Improved Virtual Experience

Scouts Canada has developed 8 weeks of play-by-play virtual meeting scripts for Beavers and Cubs.

These templates bring our program to life in new ways using virtual meetings in case weather or other circumstances force us indoors.


An Improved Indoor Experience

We've pulled together suggested Meeting Outlines for each Section to support the return to indoor Scouting when your Council and local area is in Stage 4 or when it's safe to do so.  These are great outlines to use in their entirety or when planning is a little more difficult.

Safe Scouting During COVID-19 Tools

It takes a lot of planning to create fun and safe meetings, with a little extra during these unprecedented times. These additional resources have been developed for Scouters by Scouts Canada to help you prepare safe meetings that meet our current Standards.

Provincial Operational Plans

Some provinces require the development of operational plans specific to business and services in their province. The PDFs below provides all the information required for those provinces that require Provincial Operational Plans. In addition — the download provides a pdf copy of most the compiled materials that can be used to show to an authorised health authority or occupational health inspector on request. Please also download the Standards relevant to your Council or Group (PDFs below) along with a filled out ERP (also available below).
