The Scout Slogan
Do a Good Turn Daily
The program is divided into four activity areas: Citizenship, Leadership, Personal Development and Outdoor Skills. Each activity area provides learning opportunities for Scouts to develop or modify their attitudes while gaining skills and knowledge in each activity area. Scouts earn recognition in each of the four areas through "Activity Badges." (There are two progressive levels of each Activity Badge.) Several Scout Awards acknowledge achievement up the ultimate award of Chief Scout's Award.
We also encourage Scouts to explore new areas of personal interest through our Challenge Badges system.
Scouts receive the Pathfinder Scout Award when they earn the higher level of four Activity Badges and more Challenge Badges. A Pathfinder Scout who completes some additional requirements receives the Chief Scout's Award. This prestigious honour recognizes superior attitudes, knowledge and skills.
Achievement over time in all four activity areas, coupled with achieving a variety of challenge badges, results in a well-rounded young citizen. The Scout has acquired knowledge and skills in the outdoors, cultural and scientific pursuits, personal fitness, moral and ethical development, and responding and contributing to her/his local, national and world community.
There is also a separate water activity focused branch of Scouts called Sea Scouts.
