What is Scouts ...

Enjoying canoeing, kayaking, extended hikes, and lots of camping (in all seasons) ... these are just a few of the adventures tackled as a Scout.



Scouts enjoy outdoor adventures a part of a team, working together with other young people to accomplish thrilling challenges.

Paddling at the Pacific
 

Scouts develop responsibility and leadership skills through their motto of "Be Prepared".




Whether running activities, organizing camps, or connecting with other youth across Manitoba or Canada through camps and Jamborees, the Scout program emphasizes having fun while encouraging youth to feel good about themselves, their friends and family, and the environment.

Scouts meet in a group called a Troop, which is further divided into smaller groups called Patrols. Each Scout learns the Promise and Law which helps guide her or his personal development.


Scouts hanging out on the West Coast
 

Other Scout activities include crafts, skits and, of course, the Scout Rig Rally - an annual car-craft build and race. You also get to learn a lot about the outdoors, life skills and about Canada and the world ... and have a lot of fun!
