Baden Powel Guild

What is the Canadian Fellowship of Baden-Powell Guilds?

It is an independent organization, consisting of all members of the Baden-Powell Guilds in Canada. We are affiliated with Scouts Canada.

The Canadian Fellowship is comprised largely of former members of the Scouting and Guiding movement who wish to continue to associate with like minded people and lend assistance to those movements when they are able.

Our Aims:

The Canadian Fellowship of Baden-Powell Guilds is an organization for adults who support Scouting and Guiding and promote fellowship on a worldwide basis. While based on the fundamental ideals of the Scout and Guide movements, the aim of the organization is to encourage members to enhance their personal development while actively supporting the Scout and Guide activities in their communities by conveying the values that were learned during their own involvement, as youth or leaders, to the newer members of these worldwide organizations. Through the enthusiastic demonstration of how the principles of Scouting and Guiding have affected their lives, members encourage others to participate in the worldwide fellowship of Baden-Powell Guilds.

Our Objectives:

To establish a liaison and a co-operation between the National organization of former adult Scouts and Guides;

To promote friendship amongst former adult Scouts and Guides within Canada and throughout the world.
