Push your potential. With support from your Company, climb the mountain of your aspirations to reach a personal summit. The Canadian Path Venturer Scout program is an opportunity for you to explore your own capabilities and experience an exciting variety of adventures with others who share your passion to “Climb Higher”! With the support of others in your Company, you will set goals and meet them over the Scouting Year.
Venturer Scouts in Canada use the metaphor of climbing a mountain as their Section’s symbolic framework. The more you accomplish, the closer you get to your personal summit.
(15 - 17 years of age)
Venturer Scouts offers fun adventures for boys and girls ages 15 – 17 allowing them to discover new things and experiences they wouldn’t find elsewhere. We know that young people thrive in safe surroundings. Therefore we are committed to ensuring that Scouting provides the most secure environment possible for learning, development and fun.
Venturer Scouts take the lead in deciding what program areas they will pursue. Taking charge, the youth will organize ways to achieve these goals, and will collectively reflect on their experience after the goal is met. With support from adult Scouters, this “Plan-Do-Review” method is one of the many ways that the Canadian Path can help youth develop into critical thinkers, extend their personal progression, and encourage active participation in an inclusive team dynamic.
Typical Adventures that our Vents like to pursue:
Personal Achievement Badges are designed to allow youth to explore and expand skills and knowledge in areas that are of particular interest to them.
In The Canadian Path, Personal Achievement Badges are strictly optional. They are not a core part of the program, and they are not an essential part of a youth’s personal progression. Personal Achievement Badges are not a requirement for any Top Section Award. It is recognized that activities outside of Scouting add to youth’s growth in the SPICES and to their personal progression. No one comes to Scouting as an empty vessel.
Working on Personal Achievement Badges allows youth to further develop individual interests and skills and to have that development recognized as part of their growth and progression within The Canadian Path.
