Welcome to 8thOrleans.ca
Registration for 2023 calendar year will be $240. New or returning youth can register via www.myscouts.ca or www.scouts.ca/join
NOTE: myscouts.ca is currently unavailable, email the Contact Scouter for the Section you'd like to attend and we'll make arrangements to start off with visits. Website should be back online by January 20th.
Visit our Registration page for more information.
Please note that some Sections are already full due to the number of Beavers who swam up to Cubs and the number of Cubs who swam up to Scouts. For this reason we've created two new Sections: Pack B - Tuesday and Troop C - Thursday. Waitlisted youth will be redirected to these Sections.
On a good note, we have lots of room in Colony A and B for new Beavers, while Colony C is already full.
8th Orleans policy: Masks are required to be worn during indoor meetings and are optional when outdoors.
Our policy is reviewed at each monthly Group Committee meeting.
Activities and Events
Many of the former Odawa events are coming back. Watch the schedules in your Sections and ask your Scouters to include them in your adventures.
Visit our Events page for more information.
Opening of French Sections
Our Francophone Sections (Castors and Louveteaux) opened on January 11, 2023 and are meeting Wednesdays in the Library of the Jeanne-Sauvé school on Gardenway.
We are still in need of more Scouters who are Francophone or bilingual to start getting trained, especially for Cubs. Contact commissioner@8thOrleans.ca to volunteer or get more information.
