Boys and Girls Ages 11-14
Scouts has a rich tradition—it was the first Section developed by Lord Baden-Powell over 100 years ago. SCOUTING IS still about helping clever youth with pluck succeed in life by learning and practising valuable skills. Youth of Scouts age come together in small groups called Patrols. Patrols are usually made up of about six youth. Patrols join together to form a Scout Troop.
Blaze your Trail!
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.
