The Scouts de l’Estrie have been teaching outdoor education and social development since 1931.
Through regular encounters, physical, intellectual or expression games, nature camps and projects, Scouting aims to develop all aspects of the young person’s personality (physical, intellectual, social, emotional and moral). For teenagers, adventure scouting stimulates initiative and self-transcendence in a multitude of outdoor experiences, survival and humanitarian aid here or abroad.
Our district has more than 800 young people between the ages of 7 and 21, divided into 18 urban and rural groups totaling 64 units: 16 beaver colonies: 7-8 years, 23 Cubs: 9-11 years, 14 scout troops: 12-14 years , 9 positions Pioneers: 15-17 years, 2 crossroads Young adults: 18-21 years. More than 300 volunteers, dynamic and enthusiastic, welcome these girls and guys curious, adventurous, go-getters and motivated by challenges of human solidarity.
In more than 160 countries, 28 million young Scouts are working to build a better world. Each young person lives a personalized progression where he discovers the importance of investing in the life of the group. Scouting contributes to youth leadership in a responsible development approach.
The mission of Scouting is to contribute to the education of young people and to the building of a better world of people who are ready to play a constructive role in society.
