Scouting uses outdoor recreation to promote strong values, build self-confidence and self-reliance, and promote healthy, active living, developing the next generation of leaders. There are 35 million Scouts in 216 countries around the world. Over half a billion people have made the Scout Promise since the Movement was founded in 1907. We have programs for young people ages 5 and up:
The Scout Method consists of several innovative educational ideas. The Scout Law and Promise to put the values of Scouting into simple language that young people can easily understand and apply to everyday situations. In Scouting, young people learn by doing. They are given real challenges and given the skills to meet those challenges. The adult leadership ensures that the challenges are at the right level, that the young people have the skills they need, and that safety is taken care of so that the young people will always be safe. Scouting activities are progressive, building new skills on old ones as the young people grow and develop. Personal progression is marked with badges that are earned for completion of various requirements and mastery of skills. Young people in Scouting do most of their activities in small groups which bring together new and experienced members. The more experienced members provide leadership and training to the younger ones, under the supervision of the adults. Everyone has the opportunity to develop and put into practise leadership skills. The program is supported by uniforms, badges, ceremonies, and stories which help to communicate the key ideas of Scouting and make it attractive to young people. Scouting takes place primarily in the outdoors. Out in nature, young people learn about our dependence on the environment and their mutual interdependence on each other.
27th Cambridge Scouting Group is a program of Fiddlesticks Community Centre in cooperation with the BPSA. The BPSA in Canada is affiliated with other Baden-Powell Scout Associations around the world. Together, we carry Baden-Powell’s vision into Scouting’s second century, keeping true to the original purpose and values of Scouting while adopting the latest standards in safety, child protection, environmental responsibility, and outdoor skills.
We believe that true Scouting should be available to everyone. We strive to keep costs reasonable and are committed to provide financial support where it is needed to ensure young people from all walks of life can gain the benefits of Scouting.
