Wayfinders Programs


At Wayfinders, we're proud to offer a variety of unique programs distinct from our core scouting offerings. Our programs are staff-driven, providing a fresh perspective and shorter duration compared to traditional year-long programs.

Focused on cultivating adventurous leaders equipped with cultural awareness, self-awareness, and critical thinking skills, our episodic programs empower young Canadians to navigate life's challenges with confidence.

Inclusivity lies at the heart of what we do. We strive to reach those who may be new to scouting, welcoming them into a supportive and nurturing community where they can learn, grow, and thrive. By instilling the core values of Scouts Canada and fostering a sense of belonging, we aim to ignite a passion for adventure and service that will last a lifetime.

Whether you're a seasoned outdoor enthusiast or taking your first steps into the wilderness, Wayfinders invites you to join us on a journey of discovery, exploration, and growth. Together, let's carve pathways to a brighter future for generations to come.

Wayfinders Programs

Learn to Lead

Learn to Lead is a transformative journey crafted by Scouts Canada's Wayfinders program, designed to empower youth aged 15-26 in Manitoba and Ontario. This initiative is dedicated to fostering essential leadership skills and instilling a sense of community engagement among its participants.

Through a blend of learning, fun, and outdoor adventures, Learn to Lead aims to shape the lives of young individuals while offering hands-on opportunities for growth in teamwork, leadership, and outdoor skills. The program's purpose is to bring high-impact, safe, and relevant outdoor experiences directly to young minds, tailoring youth-led programming to the unique needs of each community and providing resources and mentorship along the way.

As Learn to Lead nears completion, it marks a significant milestone in youth empowerment. Phase one, which took place from November to February, focused on empowering participants and fostering leadership skills through mentorship sessions. These sessions aimed to cultivate leaders within their respective communities, laying the groundwork for phase two.

Now, in phase two, cohorts are actively designing and implementing their own community projects, marking the fruition of their efforts. This progress is a testament to the dedication and commitment of both participants and program specialists. As we celebrate these achievements, we extend our best wishes to the upcoming cohorts as they embark on their own leadership adventures, further enriching their communities and themselves in the process.
