About Us

The 69th Toronto Scout Group welcomes youth from Leaside and surrounding areas to join us as part of the Scouting movement. 

Our mission is to help raise healthy, happy, well-rounded, capable, and confident community-minded citizens.

Outdoor Adventure Skills

The Outdoor Adventure Skills are an exciting part of the Canadian Path. The Canadian Path is the framework that we use for helping youth develop their adventure abilities from Beaver Scouts through to Rover Scouts.  The different OAS areas are:

  • Vertical Skills, such as rock climbing
  • Scoutcraft, such as knot tying, and survival skills
  • Sailing Skills
  • Camping Skills
  • Paddling Skills
  • Emergency Skills
  • Aquatic Skills
  • Trail Skills
  • Winter Skills

There are nine levels for each of these Outdoor Adventure Skills. Youth progress through each of these levels as they progress through the different sections of Scouting, with the help of our Scouters. Badges are awarded as youth achieve each level.  

Personal Achievement Badges

In addition to Outdoor Adventure Skills badges, each section (Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Venturers) are able to earn Personal Achievement Badges.  These are badges that youth can work on with parental assistance or independently. Personal Achievement Badges or PABs relate to subjects like environmentalism, hobbies, STEM projects, community, fitness, technology, and the arts.   

Top Section Awards

Each section also has its own Top Section Award. This is the highest achievement that youth can earn in that section.  

Beavers: The North Star Award

Cubs: The Seeonee Award

Scouts: The Chief Scout Award

Venturers: The Queen’s Venturer Award
