Scout Groups typically meet once a week in a local school gymnasium, church hall, or community centre to learn new skills and earn badges. Volunteer leaders are trained and experienced in outdoor skills leadership, childcare and mentorship. Through various indoor and outdoor activities, participants gain self-confidence build their independence and become proficient in new skills.
Volunteer dedication, resourcefulness, and enthusiasm are vital to Scouting. Our volunteers have provided generations of Canadian youth with a first opportunity to sleep in a tent, to experience leadership and to build self-reliance and self-confidence. If you enjoy the outdoors and want share it with the younger generation, or want to spend quality time with your children, then you have found the right place!
