Being a Scouter

We do it for the kids ... we do it for the fun

Bring on the adventure

Scouts Canada leaders (also called 'Scouters' )are dedicated men and women who commit their time and efforts to developing young people intellectually, spiritually, and physically. In fulfilling the Mission Statement, leaders provide a strong role model for youth and guide them to become capable individuals.

While having previous experience in the Scout program is an asset, Scouts Canada provides new leaders with all necessary training. Typically, new leaders will undertake a training program consisting of Wood Badge (Scouts Canada's leadership course), first aid, and usually some additional outdoor skills training. In addition, new leaders are required to undergo a standard screen procedure, consisting of an interview with the Group Commissioner, reference checks, and a police record check.

Many of our leaders are parents of our program participants, previous Scouts who have grown up through the program, or students looking for volunteer opportunities. If you have an interest in teaching children and enjoy the outdoors, become a leader with Scouts Canada!

Volunteer Opportunities

As Scouters or Parent Volunteers

We need your help! As our youth move from Beavers, to Cubs, to Scouts, to Venturers, so do their parents which leaves gaps in leaders and parent helpers each year. Please take a look at the variety of volunteer opportunities.

Your First Year
