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.
Last year, the Troop said they wanted to camp even more so we nearly doubled the recommended nights camping with an ORKA Canoe Training camp, Permit (knife, fire, axe, saw, lantern, stove) camp, Yurt Winter Camp, and Adirondack Winter Camp! Always a favourite is the DIBC camp (car smash!) and we have our link camp, plus there was a Patrol camp without Scouters!
During regular meetings we hiked, snow-shoed, indoor rock climbed, built a float for a parade, and dunked a canoe in a pool!
Hey did we mention range shooting, OMITS (organized mayhem in the snow) and our community service?
To top it all off, we went for a week canoeing, sailing, snorkelling and much, much more at the Haliburton Scout Reserve this summer!
The summer before that we back country camped in Algonquin.
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!

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.
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.
