As Beaver Scouts, you get to discover your world by exploring a map of the Pond. Embark on adventures like camping, hiking, playing games and even having campfires—all the while making great new friends along the way

 

Each symbolic area on the map provides an opportunity to plan, learn and review the six program areas of Scouting: Environment & Outdoors, Leadership, Active & Healthy Living, Citizenship, Creative Expression and Beliefs & Values. By brainstorming with your Beaver Lodge or Colony, you will discuss what kinds of adventures to explore in each different place at the Pond.

 

For example, you may want to visit Hawkeye’s Campfire on the map, which calls for planning a campfire and special ceremony; or perhaps you’d like to try your hand at Echo’s Mountain, which involves an Outdoor Adventure Skills activity.

Beavers are a creative bunch, and you will love sharing ideas and learning with your friends!

 

Cub Scouts

Boys and Girls Ages 8-10

Cub Packs are available in the following communities

Using the Jungle Map of balanced program activities as a guideline, Cubs explore new challenges and plan adventures as a Pack. Together, you and your fellow Cubs will navigate the very same jungle that Mowgli roamed in The Jungle Book. The jungle is a fun place to seek out new challenges that you can face either as a Pack or with your Lair.

Cubs are accompanied by Bagheera, Baloo, Hathi and Akela – symbolic representations selected for the Scouters, who guide and support your Pack and Lair through all your adventures. Each area on the map puts the six program areas of Scouting into practice: Environment & Outdoors, Leadership, Active & Healthy Living, Citizenship, Creative Expression and Beliefs & Values. By planning and organizing with fellow Cubs, you can use Trail Cards to explore fun ways of learning the program areas. For example, you may want to visit Council Rock on the map, which calls for a demonstration in leadership. This will encourage you to think of leadership opportunities to achieve, like bringing a friend to your next Scouting meeting and introducing them to your Lair.

 

The Jungle Map for the Cub Scout Section depicts the six Program Areas of the Canadian Path as places to visit in the jungle, all inspired by the Cubs’ symbolic framework of The Jungle Book.

Take Adventure to the next level – planning becomes more hands-on as your Troop blazes their own trail. The possibilities before you are vast, which is why some of Canada’s greatest trails are used in the map’s symbolic framework for Scouts on The Canadian Path.

Each of the trails represents one of the six program areas of Scouting: Environment & Outdoors, Leadership, Active & Healthy Living, Citizenship, Creative Expression and Beliefs & Values. Explore all the different trails with your Troop over the Scouting Year by planning and organizing your journeys. For example, embark on your map’s Cabot Trail to find ways to practice creative expression. Perhaps your Troop will use Trail Cards to guide your planning of a Variety Show or involvement with Scout Radio.

With the Scout map, you will share adventures for the different Program Areas as a Troop, or within smaller teams called Patrols.

 

Venturer Scouts

Boys and Girls Ages 15-18

Venturer Companies are 
available in the following communities

Bayridge

Push your potential. With support from your Company, climb the mountain of your aspirations to reach a personal summit. The Canadian Path Venturer Scout program is an opportunity for you to explore your own capabilities and experience an exciting variety of adventures with others who share your passion to “Climb Higher”! With the support of others in your Company, you will set goals and meet them over the Scouting Year.

Venturer Scouts in Canada use the metaphor of climbing a mountain as their Section’s symbolic framework. The more you accomplish, the closer you get to your personal summit.

 

Rover Scouts

Young Adults 18-27

Rover Crews are 
available in the following communities

Bayridge

The world awaits. Enjoy good times with others who share your values and challenge yourself with personal goals for future success, with support from a mentor. In Rovers, you’ll explore your ambitions and work to accomplish them in a stimulating setting. It is by following a cycle of Personal Development Plans that you make your way to The Portage – the final leg of your Rover Scout journey.

The challenges for young adults of this age are many, including figuring out what they want to do with their lives, doing well in school, getting a job and being successful at it, navigating relationships, transitioning into adult life and responsibilities, and seeking to make an impact in society. Rover Scouts in Canada use the metaphor of paddling a canoe as their Section’s symbolic framework. Over your time in Rovers, you will learn to confidently “Paddle Your Own Canoe”.
