Scouting Method and Programs

The Scouting Method






The scouting method is a specific approach towards working with children and youth that has certain key elements:


  • Experiential learning. Young people learn by doing, by participating in age-specific group activities, which promote learning from each other


  • Education from within, rather than formal instruction


  • Leadership by example. Leaders model their commitment to the scouting way of life, by demonstrating behaviour that is consistent with the Scout Law and Promise


  • Teamwork through the patrol system


  • Training for responsible leadership and cooperation with others


  • Healthy competition which promotes teamwork, and sportsman-like behaviour


Our Programs


Our Mission and Goals are also achieved through non-formal, activity based, hands-on educational programs, by which the scouting life-style and traditions, and the Polish culture are fostered.


Our programs are delivered in Polish, within a same gender environment, and in a variety of formats:

  • Weekly group meetings
  • Field trips, overnight summer and winter camps
  • Outdoor activities such as day hikes, back-packing, survival training, orienteering,
  • nature-Iore, star gazing, canoeing, kayaking, sailing, alpine and cross-country skiing, skating and many others
  • Service in the community
  • Active participation in Polish national anniversaries organized by the Polish community in Canada
  • Active participation in religious celebrations in our local Parishes
  • Active participation in World Scouting Jamborees of the Polish Scouting Association
