Outdoor Adventure Skills Workshops – Coming Soon!

Hey CEC Youth (Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Venturers AND Rovers)!

Have the Outdoor Adventure Skills got you interested in one (or more!) skills that you want to work on, but aren’t sure where to start? If so, we’ve got you covered! We’re working to organize skills workshops that will focus on the Outdoor Adventure Skills and will be open for all youth to attend. Not only will you be able to learn or develop these skills, but it will also be an opportunity for youth who have these skills to help mentor other youth. Our goal is to have the first workshop planned for the Fall, but in order to do that we need your help! We want to know what Outdoor Adventure Skills YOU are most interested in working on! Click here to answer a quick survey to tell us which skills you are most interested in, and that’ll help us to decide which OAS our first workshop will focus on!

(What are Outdoor Adventure Skills? They are an invitation for Scouts to try something new—to be outside more, testing themselves with progressive challenges while always staying within their capabilities to stay safe. In short, it’s about having life-changing experiences. They are also able to be developed from Beavers all the way to Rovers, so youth can develop their skills as they progress along the Canadian Path!)

If you’re interested in helping us organize the workshops, or have a specific skill(s) that you can help mentor, let us know! There’s a spot at the end of the survey where you can leave your email so we can get in touch with you!

Thanks!
Your CEC Youth Development Committee

Oakville Scouting Celebrates Scout-Guide Week 2017 with Flag Raising at Town Hall

On February 25, 2017, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Venturers and Rovers from across Oakville raised the Scouting flag at Oakville Town Hall to celebrate Scout-Guide week 2017.
As the Scouts Canada flag was hoisted at Town Hall, 4th Trafalgar Group Commissioner Scott Barber welcomed Councillors Dave Gittings, Tom Adams and Natalia Lishchyna to the celebration.
“Thank you for joining us as we celebrate Scout-Guide week and more than 100 years of Scouting in Oakville,” Barber said. “Through Scouting, each year hundreds of Oakville youth participate in safe, youth-led, adventurous programs. Along the way, they develop into capable, confident and well-rounded individuals, better prepared for success in the world.”


Scout-Guide week honours the birthday of Lord Robert Baden-Powell (Feb. 22), who, in 1907 started the Scouting Movement with his wife, Lady Olave Baden-Powell, the World Chief Guide. This annual celebration for Scouts Canada and Girl Guides of Canada brings together two worldwide youth movements to honour their heritage and recognize the good work both movements do for the Oakville community.
