Welcome to -
The 2nd Hanwell Scout

Why join Scouts?

Scouts Canada is the country's leading youth organization. For more than 100 years, we have brought a world of adventure, outdoor experience and friendship to 17 million Canadian youth.

Scouts have a lot of fun discovering new things and experiences they wouldn't have elsewhere. Along the way they develop into capable, confident and well-rounded individuals, better prepared for success in the world.

Scouting offers a world where you can discover the best in yourself and the best in others. Dollar for dollar, our programs provide significant value. They run all year round and offer adventures that youth will remember for a lifetime! Interested? Contact Us!

Scouts Canada's Mission: To contribute to the education of young people, through a value system based on the Scout Promise and Law, to help build a better world where people are self-fulfilled as individuals and play a constructive role in society.

Without a vision, there is no future.

This site is designed to keep you in touch with what's happening with the 2nd Hanwell Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. We will do our best to keep the site as up to date as possible.

  • Beavers Dairy Farm Tour
    Today the Beavers were lucky enough to visit Dunphy Dairy Farm in Keswick for a tour.
    Everybody had a  good time and we even managed to get an answer to that age old question - If white milk comes from black and white cows, where does chocolate milk come from?
    I've posted a few pictures in the Gallery for you to enjoy.
    Thanks to Martin for organizing the trip and the folks at Dunphy Dairy Farm for putting up with us.
