Venturer Scouts

The Canadian Path Venturer Scout program is an opportunity for you to explore your personal potential and experience an exciting variety of adventures with others who share your passion to “Climb Higher”! In Venturers, you’ll set personal goals and work to achieve them with the support of others in your Company.

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.

Summer Adventure Week

Summertime in Canada offers all kinds of great activities that aren’t available in the other seasons — so what adventures is your Section doing this summer? And why Summer Adventure Week in March? Because now’s the time to start thinking about what summer adventures your Section would like to pursue! Don’t wait too long — some of your favourite parks and camps are already getting booked up.

Venturer Scout and Company Handbooks

Scouts Canada is proud to present The Canadian Path Venturer Scout and Company Handbooks. These handbooks serve as key resources for Venturer Scouts who are leading their Companies and Expedition Teams on great new adventures.

The Venturer Scout Handbook focuses on the personal progression of individual Venturer Scouts as they work towards their Queen’s Venturer Award or various other awards.

The Company Handbook provides guidance to Venturer Scouts on how a Company and its Expedition Teams should function, so that the members can share ambitious adventures.

Both resources are critically important to Venturer Scouts on to The Canadian Path. They are currently available for free as basic PDF’s, but app versions will be available this winter, with optimized content for smartphones. Watch for more information in ScoutScene.

We appreciate everyone who took time throughout the fall to provide their feedback on the draft versions of these important resources. Your efforts have made these resources even better!
