Scouting is great fun and youth learn skills that offer challenge and personal development.

Scout activities stress initiative, teamwork and being prepared and the Scout program is built around developing and practicing skills. The 28th Ottawa Scout Troop participates actively in outdoor activities that increase in complexity as youth learning progresses.

The outdoors is an essential part of the Scout program. Scouts can anticipate participating in outdoor games, day hikes, overnight camps and weekend camps. Within the 28th Ottawa there is the opportunity to travel internationally, generally to northern New York State annually and out of North America every 3-4 years.

Scouts meet in a group called a troop. The troop is split into smaller groups called patrols – generally 5-6 members per patrol – each of which has a youth Patrol Leader (PL) and a youth Assistant Patrol Leader (APL). PLs and APLs will receive training for their roles and will be expected to take the initative to coach, steer and manage their patrol members.

Scout Promise:
On my honour I promise to 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

Scout Law: A Scout is kind and cheerful, considerate and clean and wise in the use of all resources.

Scout Motto: Be Prepared

The Leaders



Scouter David: David has been a leader for 40 years, 22 of them with the 28th. He will generally be the point of contact for parents. He loves the 28th Ottawa’s fast paced program and is happiest when plotting the next great adventure. Motivated youth, great colleagues, the group’s international program, high membership retention and the 28th’s alumni network also turn his crank.

Jean Marc Scouter Jean Marc: Studious and capable, Jean-Marc shines when working with youth one-on-one and there is no better time to take advantage of his knowledge than by hiking beside him on the trail or paddling with him in a canoe. Jean Marc was also a former youth member of the 28th Ottawa.
