SCOUTSabout is everything Scouting knows about programming for boys and girls ages 5-10, but packaged differently. Offered in 3-month modules, SCOUTSabout is run after-school in schools or community centres, or sometimes during school breaks and summer vacation.

Participants enjoy the same kinds of activities as Beavers and Cubs, but with a focus on structured play and learning by doing less the traditional aspects of uniform, ceremony or badge programs.
