Welcome to the 33 rd Richmond Troop Scout section! The Scout section consists of youth Scouts aged 11 to 14, lead by a group of passionate Scouters and Scouters-in-Training. The Scout section program not only teaches Scouts outdoor skills, but it also provides Scouts the platform to further develop their leadership, teamwork, and communication skills.
Scouting is much about personal development as it is about outdoor skill development. The Scout section program allows Scouts the opportunity to grow in multiple areas, to become well-rounded individuals, and to ultimately succeed in the world.

Personal Achievement Badges (PAB)
Personal Achievement Badges (PAB) are a set of 16 section-specific badges at the Beaver, Cub, and, Scout sections. These badges are designed based on interest areas of youth at their age group and the end goal is for youth to develop their self-interest and individuality. Progress for these badges should primarily be self-driven by the youth under the “Plan-Do-Review” framework and is mostly done outside of the regular scouting session. Our scouters are trained to help guide youths through this process. Parents and guardians are encouraged to take a part in helping their youth develop their interests. You can read more about the PAB component here.
Chief Scout's Award
The Chief Scout’s Award is the top award of the scout section. and it is comprised of three major components:
- Outdoor Adventure Skills (OAS)
- Community Service
- Meaningful Project
Scouts can complete the OAS requirements throughout their years in the scout section and at their last year (trailblazer), scouts can complete the community service and meaningful project components. You can read more about the Chief Scout’s award requirements or top section awards here.
Outdoor Adventure Skills
The Outdoor Adventure Skills (OAS) is a core component of Scouts Canada’s youth program. It is important to allow youth to develop outdoor skills which enables them to acquire streams of skills to equip themselves to eventually create their own unique outdoor experiences as they grow up. This program is linear throughout the youth program (Beavers through to Rovers) and is separated into 9 different streams and 9 stages each for a total of 81 stages. You can read more about OAS component here.
Uniform Placement Guide
Below is a general guide for badge placement on the uniform. Please sew the badges on the uniform and keep in mind that OAS badges will have to be replaced as youths move to the next stage.
If you are joining scouting for the first time or moving up to a new section, please purchase the shirt at the scout shop. Our group will present the crests and neckerchief at the investiture ceremony.
