Scouts is for youth 11 to 14 years of age. (with option to remain until age 16). The Scout program emphasizes having fun while encouraging youth to feel good about themselves, their friends and family, spirituality, and the environment. The Scout program helps youth expand their leadership skills and gain self confidence.

Scouting promotes activities that encourage youth to:

  • express and respond to their own spiritual values and beliefs

  • while showing concern for others

  • develop self reliance

  • pursue hobbies and personal interests

  • develop self discipline

  • and the skills of working cooperatively with others

  • while cooperate in setting and achieving small group and personal goals

  • practice leadership skills

  • relate with adults

  • be of service to others

  • camp

  • explore the outdoors,

  • and develop good conservation practices

The Scout program is designed around a lively variety of activities based on personal and group interests. Scouts emphasizes outdoor and environmental activities, citizenship and community service, leadership, and personal development. Individual interests and skills are recognized through an awards system.

The outdoors is an essential part of the Scout program. Weekend events, extended hikes, no trace camping and seasonal sports opportunities round out the Scout experience. Developing an active, healthy lifestyle is the prime goal. Scouts meet in a group called a Troop. The Troop is split into smaller groups called Patrols, each with up to 8 Scouts. The Patrols are each led by a Patrol Leader and Assistant Patrol Leader, and the Patrol Leaders are led by the Troop Leader, offering all Scouts an opportunity to develop their leadership skills.

Each Scout learns a promise, law and motto to help guide their personal development:

Scout Promise:
On my honour, I promise
That I will do my best,
To respect my country and my beliefs,
To help other people at all times,
And to carry out the spirit of the Scout Law.

Scout Law:
A Scout is
Helpful and Trustworthy,
Kind and Cheerful,
Considerate and Clean,
And wise in the use of all resources.

Scout Motto:
Be Prepared
