Scouting Waterloo Region

Traditional Scouting uses outdoor recreation to promote strong values, build self-confidence, and promote healthy, active living, developing the next generation of leaders. Programs for boys and girls ages 5 and up. We offer Scouting in Waterloo, Ontario, Scouting in Kitchener, Ontario, and Scouting in Cambridge, Ontario, Canada.

Our programs take place entirely outdoors, once every two weeks on weekends.
