1st Stittsville Scout Group has completed the third year of running the “Chief Scout Award” program. The Chief Scout’s Award is the highest award which can be achieved at the Scout level in Scouts Canada.
This program take between 2 and 3 years to complete and successful candidates will have the award presented to them by the Governor General of Canada.
This program is optional and does not require any commitment, however we are encouraging the youth to participate as it is something that the Stittsville Troop sections will be using during the 2009/2010 program year. Each Troop section will be adding components of the Chief Scout Award into their yearly program and surprise the youth later in the year with how many of the badges / requirements have been achieved and demonstrate how far along they have progressed to earning the Chief Scout Award.
