Let the adventure begin…

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!


(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.


(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.


(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.


(All genders welcome, ages 15-17)

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.

This is an easy no-sew project, especially for cubs (www.thesprucecrafts.com/fleece-tie-blanket-1252959)The blankets were passed along to the Out of the Cold Halifax along with holiday cards. Out of the Cold supports individuals or couples (16+) who are unhoused or precariously housed and are experiencing a variety of barriers to housing We cut and prepared the material, thanks to a group of parent volunteers; Chloe Budd from Out of the Cold did a brief talk to talk to the Cubs a little bit more while they make the blankets about why people experience housing precarity and what can be done to help. This project along with the creative fun, is also linked to Community Service, showing Cubs to be helpful citizens. lending a helping hand or making someone’s day a little better. ...
