Program Standards

Program Standards ensure quality programs

Scouts Canada's programs are designed to deliver fun, challenging, outdoor programs to youth of all ages. To ensure that all members receive quality Scouting programs, as well as opportunities to develop themselves, the following Program Standards have been established.

By using Program Standards as a recruitment tool, parents can see at a glance the exciting program their children will be doing. If each parent has a copy, they can follow along throughout their child's Scouting year and be assured of the great program they are experiencing.

Leaders can use Program Standards to plan and conduct excellent Scouting programs. Itís a quick reference to make sure they are covering all aspects of the program. Scouts Canada believes that by using program standards, youth receive a better program and stay in Scouting longer.

By ensuring quality factors for our programs such as: a number of outings, a number of camping opportunities, ensuring youth input and community service activities, means every youth will receive excellent Scouting programs filled with opportunities to help them develop as an individual.

"Creating a Better World" through fun, challenging outdoor programs; thatís what Scouting strives for and Program Standards will help you "Do your Best" to deliver.
