International Travel and Volunteer Work

Our most recent adventure in 2016 took us to the 7th International Finnjamboree in Finland where our Venturer Scouts volunteered in food services to help feed 17,000 participants.

In 2015, we participated in the 23rd Wold Scout Jamboree in Japan.

We sent a representative to an international development project to build a school in Madagascar in 2014.

We helped run the activities as Offer of Service (OOS) at the Canadian Scout Jamboree in 2013 in Alberta.

We represented Canada as part of the Canadian Contingent to the 22nd World Scout Jamboree in Sweden in 2011.

Our structured Activity Leader and Scouter-in-Training programs will help you earn the mandatory high school volunteer hours, Duke of Edinburgh Award and Queen’s Venturer Award.
