Welcome to the 67th Winnipeg Scout Group

Gone Home:  We honour the memory of our Scouts and Scouters who have passed away.


After a suspension of of our Scouting activities from March 2020, we have resumed limited activities for fall 2020 and winter 2021.  At this point, all meetings are virtual and planning is week-to-week.

What's up with our group ...

In addition to section-specific meetings and outings, we offer many activities spanning various age-ranges, some involving the whole family.  Mark your calendars for the following.


March 2021 (exact date TBD):  67th Winnipeg Group Committee meeting

6:30pm – 8:30pm  on Zoom. Meeting information will be provided to parents and group members via email.

Every family member and registered member of our Group has an opportunity to provide direction on group management and administration.  This is where decisions are made that affect your Scout group!  Agenda to follow.  All Scouters and parents are requested to attend (from the comfort of their own homes).

Meeting participants are gathered around a table, each putting ideas out there


What is Scouting ...

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.

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, 15 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 enjoy Scouting with your child? Become a Leader!  We're always looking for interested volunteers.  Roles include section-Scouters (who work directly with the youth), as well as group administration, fundraising, etc.  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).  For fall of 2020, there is a no-cost trial period for new members.  Paid registration has resumed in January 2021.

Cost and Registration Process:
  • Fees for the 2021 calendar year:
    • Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts, Venturer Scouts: $230
    • Adult volunteers and Rover Scouts: no charge
    • Registration for the January 2021 Scouting Year (calendar year) is now open.
  • Plus weekly/monthly dues, uniform shirt and guide/map.  You can purchase uniforms at  scoutshop.ca and/or view insignia placement here.
  • Some fees are also applied to camps and other special outings.
  • Families are also asked to take part in fundraising activities, and other volunteer roles with the group.
  • Start your Scouting adventure today!  To register your youth, please use the on-line facility at myscouts.ca. or register at https://www.myscouts.ca/ca/join

Up until fall of 2019, the registration year began each September 1.  However, because of a four-month pandemic-inspired free trial period, the registration year has shifted to the calendar year, with annual fees due each January 1.  However, youth registrations and adult leader volunteers are accepted any time of the year.

The Group prepares an annual activity report, based on the calendar year.  Please see the 2019 report here.
