1st London Medical Venturer~Rover Scouts
The MedVent program grew out of a partnership between Scouts Canada and EMS providers across the country to provide a challenging and unique experience to youth interested in a career in healthcare. In this capacity the MedVents provide first aid services for Scouts Canada Camps as well as local community events.
We challenge youth to expand and improve upon their first aid and first response skills through traditional and practical training under the Red Cross training standards. We hope that by enabling youth to be leaders in an emergency we can enable them to be leaders in their everyday lives.
Despite our differences the London MedVents are still active members in the traditional Scouts Canada community and participate in the same team building and skill development opportunities one would expect from a normal scouting group. As a member of the MedVents you can expect to attend the same camps,”moots” and volunteer opportunities that define the world famous program.
