What is Scouts ...

By enrolling in Scouting, you open the door to explore a vast range of new experiences, opportunities, adventures, and friendships.  As with other Scout Groups throughout Manitoba and the rest of Canada, youth are divided into five age categories called sections.  While some events and activities span two or more sections, each section holds separate weekly meetings, runs a separate program, and even has its own logo.






What could be more Canadian than a Beaver shouting out its motto of  "sharing, sharing, sharing"?  Girls and boys from age 5 to 7 gather for an hour of games, crafts and learning on Monday nights.
Cub Scouts section logo features a green wolf's head in a yellow square




Based on the wolves and other associated critters in The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling, Wolf Cubs, a.k.a. Cub Scouts (girls and boys age 8 to 10) practice "do your best" on Tuesday nights.
The original scouting section, Scouts is for girls and boys, 11 to 14 years of age.  67th Winnipeg Scouts develop responsibility and leadership skills through their motto of "be prepared" on Wednesday nights.
Young men and women, 14 to 17, put the "venturer" in "adventurer."  Outdoor activities are an essential part of the program and align with the Venturer Scout motto of "challenge."
Men and women Rover Scouts meet in a "crew," developing and managing their own program.  With the motto of "Service," Rover Scouts also act in leadership roles with younger Scouting sections.
 
Adults, Become A Leader/Volunteer!

Want to join Scouting with your child? Become a Leader!  We're always looking for interested volunteers.  Please talk to any of our current leaders for more information.
By breaking the group into sections, youth can participate in age-appropriate activities, yet still progress within the same group.

The program year for each section typically runs from September to June (usually a bit shorter for Beaver Scouts, the youngest section).
