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.

26th Halifax Scouting

Our Scout Troop wrapped up its regular meetings until September this past Thursday. There was gear inventory and storage, planning for some summer activities and next year's program.

This summer, we're looking at a movie night, some hiking, a skills camp and a STEM activity at Dalhousie. We'll firm up plans soon.

For next fall/winter, the scouts came up with lots of ideas and are interested in doing things such as:

- Snorkeling
- Sailing/canoeing
- Jamboree on the Internet
- Scoutrees/tree planting
- Swimming activities
- Scuba experience
- Learning about forests/Silviculture
- Laser tag
- Fishing
- Snowshoeing
- A mid-night hike
- Building shelters and sleeping in them

Also - more intramural-type sports and games... and much more...

We'll see what we can make happen, but it looks like it's going to be a great year!
