Trail Cards are a part of the Canadian Path.

Each card, usually a single piece of paper and often double sided, describe an Adventure.

Each card may contain:

  • Trail Card title
  • The Adventure: a brief description of the activity
  • Program Area with link to Symbolic Framework and icon from Section Map
  • Plan: Questions to help get youth (supported—not led—by Scouters) started on the planning process. Scouters should support youth planning by asking additional questions
  • Do: Share the Adventure—have fun!
  • Review: Questions to help youth (supported—not led—by Scouters) review the Adventure
  • Online Resources: Hyperlinks to videos + websites
  • Safety Note: Safety considerations specific to the activity—standard safety practices still apply
  • Tips for Scouters: (where applicable—Beaver Scouters only)

For individual trail cards, see the Canadian Path web site, http://canadianpath.ca. Under "For Youth", select the desired section, and then look for the "Tail Cards" portion of the page, categorized by program area.

Note that Trail Cards functionally replace Jumpstarts.
