  1. Camp for at least one night within the area with your section or group (Camps prior to February 1, 2017 don't count)
  2. Take a picture of participants earning the crest, with a landmark of the sight, i.e. a sign, lodge, lake or cabin
  3. Send this photo into the Maritime Service Centre along with the quantity of crests you'd like. It is important to note that multiple sections of the crest cannot be purchased at one time.

Religion in Life & Spirituality Awards

Scouts Canada welcomes all religious affiliations and we encourage all our youth and leaders to learn more about and develop their faith in all aspects of our programming as well in the attainment of a Religion in Life Badge, which is specifically geared to their individual religious community. Scouts also welcomes all those who do not have a specific religious affiliation and/or do not attend a regular religious worship service. Furthermore, for those who do not have any religious affiliation we offer the opportunity to engage in your own expression and your own personal sense of what Spirituality means to you through our Spirituality Award.

Scouts Canada, the country’s leading youth organization, offers challenging programs for boys, girls and youth age 5-26 in thousands of individual groups in most cities and towns across Canada.
