Scouts

ScoutsFor boys and girls, 11 to 14 years old

Scouts is about having fun while gaining valuable leadership skills and self-confidence.

Scouts enjoy outdoor adventures like mountain biking, rock climbing and lots of camping while working together with other young people to accomplish thrilling challenges.

Scouting gives every member a chance to be a leader. It might involve running an activity, organizing a camp, or participating with other young people across your province or Canada in a youth forum.
