History

The 65th Toronto Scout Group was founded in 1923 at High Park Presbyterian Church at Roncesvalles and Wright Avenue in western Toronto. Unfortunately, very little is known about the earliest history of the Group, but the earliest independent confirmation is found in early 1924. By the late 1920s the Group was running with a Scout Troop and a Cub Pack, the earliest known Rovers would not come around until 1961 and last for only three years before being revived over half a century later. In its early years, the 65th Toronto often took part in District and Divisional events and often finished as one of the top Groups in intertroop competitions. In 2000, the Scout Troop was left without a Scouter and was forced to shut down, four years later it was revived under a new Scouter, after consultation with the youth, it was decided to focus on Sea Scouting. In 2010 a Sea Venturer Company was formed and our Rovers revived as a Sea Rover Crew in 2014, 51 years after the original Crew was formed.
