The Six Program Areas
The Canadian Path is divided into six Program Areas—categories of the different opportunities that Scouting offers.
Each Section explores all of the Program Areas through age-appropriate activities. As your Section plans its adventures, you may discover that your plans include more than one Program Area.
Including features from multiple Program Areas makes the adventure more challenging and encourages development in all of the SPICES. Remember, the Canadian Path is Youth-led, so the youth will decide on adventures for every Program Area. The ideas below give a sense of the fantastic possibilities the six Program Areas can provide.
