Who we are
Developing life skills to climb the mountain of their goals and reach their personal summit, Venturers aged 15-17 embark on greater expeditions and acquire real-world experiences that prepare them for future success.
Venturer Scouts is an opportunity for youth to explore their potential and ambition in an inclusive environment, forging friendships with others who share their passion to “Climb Higher”.
Opening the door to exciting, real-life, hands-on experiences and outdoor adventures, Venturer Scouts learn to nurture an active and healthy lifestyle.
To help develop well-rounded youth, better prepared for success in the world.

The Scout Method
Scouts Canada engages youth, involving them throughout their formative years in a non-formal educational process, using a specific Method that makes each individual the principal agent of his or her development as a self-reliant, supportive, responsible and committed person. The Scout Method is an approach unique to Scouting throughout the world (World Association of the Scouting Movement’s Scouting: An Educational System) and includes each of the following eight elements:
- Scout Law and Promise
- Learning by Doing
- The Team System
- A Symbolic Framework
- Personal Progression
- Adult Support
- Community Involvement
The Scout Law
A Scout is helpful and trustworthy,
Kind and cheerful,
Considerate and clean,
and wise in the use of all resources.
On my honour;
I promise that I will do my best;
To do my duty to God and the King;
To help other people at all times;
and to carry out the spirit of the Scout Law.
