Scouts Canada’s Mission is to help develop well-rounded youth, better prepared for success in the world. We aim to achieve this by providing high quality Scouting programs and relying on dedicated Scouters to facilitate them. Ensuring that our Scouters are equipped with the knowledge and skills to be successful is critical. Our Scouter development program, Wood Badge, makes these skills more accessible through the Scout Method.
Scouts Canada refreshed the online Wood Badge I to ensure it focuses on the Canadian Path. All Scouters are encouraged to freshen their knowledge about the Canadian Path and ensure their skills and approached align with our program.
To encourage all Scouters to complete the new training, CEC is offering an incentive to all Scouters, whether they are new to Scouting or an experienced Scouter. Everyone who completes the Canadian Path Wood Badge I, as recorded in myscouts.ca between Aug 1/18 – May 31/19, will be entered into a draw to win the opportunity to spend an afternoon paddling with our National Commissioner, Tim Welch (date and place of the paddle to be determined).
Haven’t completed the new Canadian Path Wood Badge I? You still have time to log into the David Huestis Learning Centre and complete the training at your own pace, or join a face-to-face Canadian Path Woodbadge I (Contact your Area Commissioner to find out about any upcoming sessions)
