Troop Information
Scouts want adventure! They want to experience new and exciting things such as snowshoeing, canoeing, camping and hiking. The symbolic framework of the Scout program uses the diversity found in our great country as a basis for a variety of adventures. Scouts are inspired to discover more about the world and themselves by reflecting on the historical trails that are found throughout Canada. Scouts are supported in this great Canadian journey by Scouters, who act as mentors for the youth. 

Scout uniform cost
The Scout uniform 
consists of a long sleeved green shirt which can be purchased at the Scout Shop on Baseline Road in Ottawa. Although not required, there are other clothing available such as the short sleeved activity shirt and ball cap. The necker/scarf is provided by 1st Rockland.

Personal Achievement Badges recognize the successful completion of personal interest-based goals that Scouts set for themselves. Once a set of five achievement goals is determined, the Scout works with a Scouter to develop and finalize the plan. The Plan-Do-Review cycle is followed. Success is recognized with the appropriate badge. The Scout must set five goals or personal requirements, any number of which can be of his or her own choosing. Here is a diagram for badge placement on the Scout's uniform.

Scouts will have completed (cumulatively from Beavers, Cubs and Scouts) 18 stages of Outdoor Adventure Skills. The youth may choose to make progress across several Outdoor Adventure Skills or focus on making great progress in a few Outdoor Adventure Skills. This enables youth to go broad or go deep, and lets the Troop Leadership Teams determine which Outdoor Adventure Skills they want to undertake.
