1st Stittsville Scout Group makes a difference in the lives of our children, youth and young adults.
- We provide opportunities for youth to grow, achieve new "firsts" and develop into citizens of the world.
- We are active members of the Stittsville community, and
- are proud to participate in many community initiatives, including Villagefest, Apple Day, Canada Day, Spring Cleanup, Parade of Lights and two annual Food Drives for the Stittsville Foodbank.
Our Scouts participate in exciting activities, discovering new things and experiences they wouldn't discover elsewhere.
We believe in putting the "out" in "Scouts" and participate in many outdoor adventures, including hikes, camping, canoe trips, snowshoeing, games and all-season survival skills.
Along the way, our Scouts develop into capable, confident and well-rounded individuals, better prepared for success in the world.
And most importantly, we have a lot of fun!
1st Stittsville Scouts offers several challenging and adventurous programs for boys and girls or all ages.
These programs include:
Beaver Scouts (Ages 5 - 7)
Beaver Scouts opens the door for your child to discover the world. It is filled with a little bit of everything – outdoor activities, games, music and sports. Along the way, Beaver Scouts meet new friends, learn cooperation and teamwork and develop self-confidence
Cub Scouts (Ages 8 - 10)
With the Cub motto of "Do Your Best" front and centre, Cub Scouts are encouraged to try new and more challenging activities.
Learning important first aid skills, paddling a canoe for the first time, or leading a game at camp will open the door for Cubs to try other adventures they never thought possible.
Scouts (Ages 11 - 13)
Scouts enjoy outdoor adventures like mountain biking, rock climbing and lots of camping while working together with other young people to accomplish thrilling challenges
Venturer Scouts (Ages 14 - 17)
Venturer Scouts learn to nurture an active, healthy lifestyle, acquire the knowledge and skills for career development and participate in thrilling outdoor adventures.
