Kids in Scouts have fun adventures discovering new things and experiences they wouldn’t find elsewhere. Along the way, they develop into capable, confident and well-rounded individuals,
better prepared for success in the world. Scouts is the start of something great.
Scouts is for boys and girls from 11 to 14 years of age.
Our troop, the 403rd Toronto Sea Scouts, meets at 188 Carlton Street on Wednesdays from 7-9:00pm.

The Scout Program
The Scout program emphasizes having fun while learning by doing. We aim to youth expand their leadership skills and gain self confidence. As Sea Scouts, we are Scouts with an extra focus on water activities: canoeing, sailing, swimming, etc.
The program is designed around a lively variety of activities based on personal and group interests. Scouting emphasizes outdoor and environmental activities, citizenship and community service, leadership, and personal development. Individual interests and skills are recognized through an awards system.
The outdoors is an essential part of the Scout program and water activities are essential to a Sea Scout program. Weekend events, canoe trips, hikes, no trace camping and seasonal activities round out the Scout experience. Developing an active, healthy lifestyle is a prime goal.
Sea Scouts meet in a group called a Ship’s Company. The troop is split into smaller groups called Boat Crews.
Scouting promotes activities that encourage youth to:
- camp, explore the outdoors, and develop good conservation practices
- develop self discipline and the skills of working cooperatively with others
- be of service to others
- cooperate in setting and achieving small group and personal goals
- practise leadership skills
- pursue hobbies and personal interests
- relate with adults
- express and respond to their own spiritual values and beliefs while showing concern for others
On my honour,
I promise that I will do my best;
To do my duty to God and the Queen;
To help other people at all times,
And to carry out the spirit of the Scout Law.
A Scout is
helpful and trustworthy,
kind and cheerful,
considerate and clean,
wise in the use of all resources.
