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. Our programs are run in cooperation with the BPSC Canada.

Ages 5–7: Den

As a member of the Otter Den, your child will learn about cooperation and getting along with others through non-competitive games, music, campfires, crafts, and outdoor activities including camping. Otters learn useful family skills, community skills, and learn to play safely together.

Ages 8–10: Pack

As a member of the Pack, your child will participate in outdoor activities, archery, camping, crafts, games, stories, campfires, earning badges, and other activities which will build their confidence and give them opportunities for adventure. The program is based on The Wolf Cub's Handbook by Lord Baden-Powell. The year-round program includes weekly meetings, week-long summer camp, and several weekend camps.

Ages 10½–15: Troop

Your child will build confidence and skills through outdoor adventures including camping, bike trips, hiking, archery, first aid, cooking, and canoeing. As part of a small group, your child will practise leadership and teamwork skills, and learn how to take more responsibility for themselves. The program will include weekly meetings, a week-long summer camp, March Break trip, and regular weekend activities, including at least six camps.

Ages 16+: Crew

Young adults continue Scouting following Baden-Powell's book Rovering to Success.
