A message from the president: Regular meetings are held at St. Aidan's on Sunday evenings or at offsite locations.  

We like to keep busy planning camps and activities, and we also like to volunteer as Offer of Services at group, area and National camps.  We also like doing service for big camps, like the recent Candian Jamboree in July 2017. But that's not all, we have many other adventures in the planning so more to come.

How old are Venturer Scouts:

Males and females, aged 14 - 17.

How old are Rover Scouts:

Men and women, aged 18 - 26.

What is the Venturer Scout Promise and the Rover Scout Prom?

On my honour
I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to God
and the Queen,
To help other people at all times,
And to carry out
the spirit of the Scout Law.

What is the Venturer Scout Motto?

Challenge

What is the Rover Scout Motto?

Under the Canadian Path, the Rover Scout motto has been changed to "Go Beyond."  This replaces "Service"

What is Venturer Scouts?

The Venturer Scout program is all about challenge. From start to finish, the program is run almost entirely by the youth members. Youth will have the opportunity to plan and execute activities which reflect their own personal and group interests. In Venturer Scouts, the sky is the limit! Plus, Venturer Scouts get the opportunity to "try on" different exciting career options through their activities.

Each company has an executive consisting of at least a president, a vice-president, a secretary and a treasurer. The executive is responsible for the majority of the planning. Each company has an advisor (sort of like a leader), who makes sure that your event will run smoothly by offering advice and suggestions. Venturer Scouts meet in a group called a Company. Each Venturer Scout learns a promise and motto to help guide their personal development

The Venturer
 Scout program emphasizes having fun while encouraging teens to feel good about themselves, their friends and family and the environment. Venturer Scouts' leadership skills are put to the test while gaining self confidence.
