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

(All genders welcome – ages 5-7)

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

(All genders welcome, ages 8-10)

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

Push your potential. Develop life skills to climb the mountain of your goals and reach your personal summit, embarking on greater expeditions and acquiring real-world experience.

Last night was a special occasion for our troop. All 15 of our scouts attended a presentation by Sol Nayman, a holocaust survivor who spoke at Pier 21 last night as part of Holocaust Education Week 2019.

Sol's story is powerful and captivating; by the time he gained freedom after World War 2, he was around the age of the kids in our group. He entered Canada in 1948 through the same building we were in last night; his words are inscribed on the walls as part of the museum's exhibit.

He was very touched that there were so many kids in attendance, and mentioned it several times before, during and after his presentation. We got to sit on the floor right by the podium; we had the best seats in the house.

As Sol said, "One candle can light 1,000 more."

Special thanks to the Atlantic Jewish Congress and Pier 21 for accommodating our group.#holocausteducationweek
