Scouts Canada

With every new member, every camp and every community service project,
Scouts Canada makes one simple promise to Canadian youth, parents and society:

Scouts is the start of
something great.

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

Scouts is the start of something great...

Beaver Scouts

The Colony (Boys and Girls, ages 5 - 7)

The Beaver Scout section uses small groups called lodges. Dividing the Beaver Scouts into small groups makes it easier to communicate with the youth. Individual Beaver Scouts can contribute more to discussions in small groups and it is much better for detailed instruction.

We also divide the youth by age in groupings called tail levels: Brown Tails (age five); Blue Tails (age six); and White Tails (age seven).

Cub Scouts

The Pack (Boys and Girls, ages 8 - 10)

The Cub Scout section uses small groups called sixes. Dividing the Cub Scouts into small groups makes it easier to communicate with the youth. Individual Cub Scouts can contribute more to discussions in small groups and it is much better for detailed instruction. A part of the meeting area, called a lair, is set aside for each six.

Cub Scouts may be divided up by age as well to allow for programming by the abilities of the Cub Scouts. As the Cub Scouts get older, they become more independent and more capable. The same activity can be altered to make it appropriately challenging for each age group.

Scouts

The Troop (Boys and Girls, ages 11 - 14)

The Scout section uses small groups called patrols. We also divide the youth by age for some activities. Dividing the Scouts into small groups makes it easier to communicate with the youth. Individual Scouts can contribute more to discussions in small groups and it is much better for detailed instruction.

We also separate the youth for such activities as badge work and skill development.

Venturer Scouts

The Company (Youth - male and female, ages 14 - 17)

Venturer Scouts decide upon their own program incorporating indoor activities, badges and awards, challenging outdoor adventures and special interests.

Venturer Scouts conduct their meetings with a youth chair who uses an agenda, with reports from committees, and procedures for making decisions common to adult organizations.
