COME JOIN US! Scouting is a place to have fun, make new friends, learn, grow and develop.
If you are between 7-9 years old, you will be part of the Beavers; Cubs between 9-12, Scouts between 12-16 and Rovers for 16 years old and over.
We meet every Friday from 7pm to 9pm… come see us!
BEAVERS: Children aged 7 to 9 are encouraged to join the Beavers, where a fun and educational program awaits them every Friday. This is the first step in scouting, and an introduction to a life of development, teamwork and service to the community. While they are the youngest members of our movement, the Beavers also fully participate in our yearly camping activities.
CUBS: Based on Rudyard Kipling’s “Jungle Book”, the Cubs’ program is based on awareness, service and learning. Every week, the cubs engage in team games and learning sessions, and take on growing roles of leadership and responsibility.
SCOUTS: The Ari and Arenoush Scouts are composed of young boys and girls, aged 12 to 16, who share experiences of participation and learning. In addition to strengthening their sense of belonging, these unique and interesting life experiences create unbreakable bonds between these youth, strengthening their spirit of solidarity. During the weekly meetings, the Scouts operate with a “patrol” system, meaning that they work in small groups with to achieve their individual and common objectives. This system allows the youth to focus as much on their development as a group as their individual path.
ROVERS: The Rovers are the oldest group of the A.G.B.U. scouting movement ranging from 16 to 25 year olds, led by a team of advisors and an elected executive which includes a president, vice-president, secretary and treasurer. This unit differs from the beavers, cubs, and scouts since the members set their own objectives such as learning how to become a leader, organizing a wide variety of cultural and educational events, as well as serving the Armenian and Montreal community at large. The biggest project that the rovers undertake is the organization of a humanitarian trip to Armenia. Trips organized by previous rover teams earned important recognitions such as the Annapourna and Inukshuk awards. Throughout their years as rovers, each member acquires skills such as leadership, teamwork, and responsibility. The A.G.B.U. Rovers are a vibrant group of young individuals who, like Lord Baden Powell, are committed to making the world a better place.
