Crew Scouters

Rover Scouting is for young adults who are 18 to 26 years old. This is the most senior Section of the five Scouts Canada Sections. Rover Scouting helps with the transition from adolescence to adulthood and supports young adults with their integration into adult society. The challenges for young adults of this age are many, including figuring out what they want to do with their lives, doing well in school, getting a job and being successful at it, navigating relationships, transitioning into adult life and responsibilities, and seeking to make an impact in society. Rover Scouts provides young adults with a program and a support system to help them achieve their personal goals within groups of like-minded individuals.

Crew Scouters were called “Advisors” in the past, and this remains your role as a Crew Scouter facilitating the Canadian Path program. Provide helpful advice to your Crew, and give the Rovers every opportunity to lead and to learn by doing.

Scouters' Tips

Canadian Path Scouter Manual

The Canadian Path Scouter Manual has arrived! This is your first-stop reference for the Canadian Path program, with content pertaining to all Sections, from Beaver Scouts to Rover Scouts.

Thank you to the Scouters across Canada who took the time to read the posted draft and provide valuable feedback. Some changes have been made, and this version represents the most up-to-date information available to support your Section on The Canadian Path.

This online document has the same great look and content that will be found in the printed Scouter Manual that will be shipped in the Canadian Path Starter Kits later this summer, and which will be appearing on Scout Shop shelves for the new Scouting Year.

Have a look, and we’ll see you on The Path!

Download the Brand New Scouter Manual App!

The Canadian Path team is excited to offer the new Scouter Manual App! This app takes all of the content from the Scouter Manual and optimizes it for Scouters to explore on their iPads. The app includes embedded videos and direct links to all the resources referenced in the print version. The navigation allows Scouters to quickly find what they’re looking for.

Purchase the app from the iTunes App Store for $3.99.

The Scouter Manual App is currently only available for iOS on iPads, but iPhone and Android versions are in development and coming soon!

Canadian Path Fundamentals Training

Throughout this past year the Canadian Path team has launched a number of videos and resources aimed at helping Scouters and youth understand what the Canadian Path means to them and their Section. These resources have now been rolled into a brand new training course called Canadian Path Fundamentals. This course summarizes everything we’ve learned about the Canadian Path in the past year in one convenient place!

This course is supplemental for all existing Scouters, meaning that it’s up to you whether you’d like to take it, but will be added to the existing Wood Badge Part 1 courses so that new Scouters are up to date on what we covered last year.

You can find it in either English or French in the David Huestis Learning Centre course catalogue. Just search for “Canadian Path”!
