203 Sherwood Park Scouts

News, information and events for the 203 Sherwood Park Scout Group. We have space available in our Beaver Colony (boys and girls ages 5-7), Cub Pack (boys and girls ages 8-10),  Scout Troop (boys and girls ages 11-14), and our Venturer Company (boys and girls ages 14-17). Join us in our adventures on the Canadian Path! Register online on the Scouts Canada website, or contact us:

Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, and Venturers have a lot of fun discovering new things and experiences they wouldn't have elsewhere. Along the way they develop into capable, confident and well-rounded individuals, better prepared for success in the world. Scouting offers a world where youth can discover the best in themselves and the best in others, and offers adventures that they will remember for a lifetime!
