Scouts learn to blaze their own trail, delving into more leadership opportunities by planning adventures with their Troop and giving back to their community in a meaningful way. Scouts can take their outdoor adventure skills to the next level with activities like mountain biking, rock climbing and lots of camping.
Through Scouts, youth discover their unique capabilities and personal progression as they discover the world through Scouting.
Working on Personal Progression Badges allow youth to further develop individual interests and skills, allowing their development along The Canadian Path to be recognized as part of their growth and progression. Personal Achievement Badges are section-specific and do not continue with the youth from one Section to the next.
These are achieved in stages and continue with youth from one Section to the next. They mark progress in gaining skills with camping, hiking, aquatics, winter activities, and more.
Only the highest stage earned in any particular skill area is worn on the uniform.
The Chief Scout
Scouts can pursue the Chief Scout Award by completing Personal Progression within their Troop; by leading or contributing to projects of personal significance that impact their community; and by attaining the specified number of Outdoor Adventure Skills stages.
