Welcome to Scouts Canada

Join Scouts Canada

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!

There will be a FOCUS youth training course being held from April 28 - April 30 at Camp Nedooae in beautiful Elderbank Nova Scotia. For the most part we will be working out of the Duncan Center for both the youth training modules as well as the Scouter program. This course will be the last course being run in Nova Scotia before CJ so if you still require this course for CJ this will be your last chance.
