Scouts (Age 11-14)

[ Jump to: Our Adventures | Meetings | Calendar | Uniform | Promise, Law & Motto | Badges | Camping ]

Scouts is about having fun while gaining value leadership skills and self-confidence. Scouts enjoy outdoor adventures like mountain biking, rock climbing and lots of camping while working together with other young people to accomplish thrilling challenges.

Scouting gives every member a chance to be a leader. It might involve running an activity, organizing a camp, or participating with other young people across your province or Canada in a youth forum.

We are a youth led troop that is always looking for new adventures so bring your ideas with you to a meeting.

Our Adventures

Well after an amazing week at Haliburton Scout Reserve doing canoeing, sailing, etc. last summer, we figured we had to try hard to find some new things!  Achievement unlocked!  Fencing, Winter Link Camp, Dorchester Friendship Camp and Blue Springs Archery Camp – and now we are building Scout Trucks (new to us)!

Oh we did all sorts of our old favourites too like ORCKA Canoe Training Camp, Nerf War, Kiwanis Food Drive, indoor rock climbing and just KILLED the car at the car smash event of DIBC.

No, we didn’t forget the fun Scouting stuff like Axe and Saw, Knife, Fire, and Stove and Lantern permits, lashing to build forts and shelters, cook outs and hikes!
This summer … white water rafting and Bon Echo Provincial Park!
Yup … this was #youthled – #scoutsdostuff!
 
Join us as we seek to #TrySomethingNew, with a fall backpacking camp and … Pacific Jamboree 2019 on Vancouver Island – OH YEAH!!!

Meetings

1st Elmira Cub Pack meets Wednesday at 6:45 at John Mahood School (5 First St, Elmira). We try to plan most outings on Wednesday nights as well.

We will be camping, hiking, biking, swimming and going to nature reserves. There will be challenges that will test your physical and mental abilities and all the while having fun with your troop. We will get to know the community by being involved in such activities as tree planting, earth clean up, parades and maple syrup festival. Hope you come and join us!

Scout Badges

While badges are still an important part of the Scouting experience, there is much less emphasis on them at meetings. If your Scout has an interest in badge work, they may be worked on during their own time and presented at any meeting. For badge guidelines, click: Personal Achievement Badges or Outdoor Adventure Skills.

Camps

You have never been camping until you have gone Scout camping!   We camp all seasons learning a variety of camping methods and having lots of fun adventures.  Scouts help define their own program with well run patrols even planning their own solo overnight camps.

Youth must attend camp prep meetings prior to attending camps.
