Scouting brings a world of adventure, outdoor experience and friendship to youth and adults.

26th Halifax Beavers, Cubs and Scouts

Adventure, outdoor experience and friendship. It starts with Scouts!

Beavers

Beaver Scouts opens the door for your child to discover the world. It is filled with a little bit of everything – outdoor activities, games, music and sports.

Cubs

Challenging hikes, weekend camps, and an introduction to water activities like canoeing or kayaking are just a few of the fun outdoor adventures that Cub Scouts enjoy.

Scouts

(All genders welcome, ages 11-14)

Scouts enjoy outdoor adventures like mountain biking, rock climbing and lots of camping while working together with other young people to accomplish thrilling challenges.

Venturers

26th Halifax Scouting
Hello out there Cubs! We hope you are all staying safe and working hard with your new on-line learning! We miss being together and are working on some virtual meeting ideas. While we work on virtual meeting ideas we also developed another way to continue our Cub experience. We are starting what we call the 26th Halifax Covid Stay at Home Cub Challenge! Each week we will issue a new and different challenge to our Cubs. These challenges will be directly linked to the Cub Scout Badges. What does this mean? Well simply by completing each challenge, Cubs can learn something new or do something to help or show kindness to others. Maybe even along the way Cubs might even have some FUN! Here is how it works. Each week we email out a new challenge, this will also be found in our Scout Tracker just like our weekly meetings, along with the badge requirements you will achieve. When you complete a challenge send us your accomplishments, include any pictures or videos you may have made. We will later share these accomplishments at either an in-person or virtual meeting. Besides your badge there will be special recognition for those who complete the most challenges!Stay safe, work hard, get outside and yes have a little fun!This weeks challenge: THE CUB HOME CHALLENGE : Link to this challenge: scoutstracker.ca/cubs/?fbclid=IwAR24K7eMr6IbKI3jRLFDFwc3ZZbpg8-2lvVEbDpnyi43iMuaFPGrVCAzqCI#view-... ...
