Woodbadge Part 1 for Canadian Path (Online Training)

As announced through ScoutScene Vol. 5 Issue 8 on September 10, 2016, the contents for Wood Badge 1 is changed to accommodate the new Canadian Path program structure.

Wood Badge I for The Canadian Path is available on the David Huestis Learning Centre (DHLC) as of September 2nd, 2016. Wood Badge I has been fully updated with the new content that provides an introduction to facilitating Scouts Canada's program - The Canadian Path.

Some important changes are:

  • Wood Badge I is divided into seventeen sessions rather than five modules
  • Wood Badge I for the Canadian Path counts as the role specific training for Scouters volunteering with Colony, Pack, Troop, Company and Crew.
  • Sessions follow the Plan, Do, Review model
  • The course is available through “My Learning Path” – a visual and interactive way for Scouters to access training

   Scouts Canada - National Calendar

Well, planning for the year ahead just got easier with the National Calendar — now available online!

Scouters, Scouts and parents will now be prepared for all the great Scouting events of the year.

Sharing a SUCCESS story... the official Guinness World Record for the fastest 4-man tent erected by a 10 person team.

This was done at Flat Rock Rapids Camp last July (2014). Scouter Adam Heaney and Scouter Amy Patterson were on the team and Scouter James Heaney is listed as support staff for videography of the event. It's very exciting for the camp, scouting movement and these wonderful scouters in our area - from 8th Richmond Hill.

You can find the story details below...
