Your Jungle Map includes a number of places that you can visit to have different kinds of adventures.
Each year, your Pack starts its Jungle Journey at Council Rock. At Council Rock, you are presented with your whiskers and become a Runner (a first-year Cub Scout), a Tracker (a second-year Cub Scout) or a Howler (a third-year Cub Scout.).
After Council Rock activities, you get together with a smaller team of Cubs called a Lair. Your Lair brainstorms what adventures you would like to have at each location on the map. The Howlers from each Lair will collect the suggestions they hear and bring them to the Howler Council to decide what adventures the Pack will undertake.
Take a look at the Canadian Trails Map. There are trails from across the country, each representing a different Program Area. The trails are based on actual trails of historic and cultural significance. You and your Patrol will travel, figuratively, on all of the trails on a regular basis. It's how you can be sure that you're createing a program that has plenty of varienty.
Your map will help you given your adventures the variety you need to succeed in Scouting. Take the time to explore each location on the map. Log your adventures. Track which Program Areas you have explored and which ones you need to discover.
The Challenge Areas facilitate the core program. They are four broad areas which all sectional programming should fit under.
The Challenge Areas not only assist in idea generation, but form part of the requirements for measuring participation and achievement in each Section. Through a process of participate-assist-lead, you will be able to record your involvement in the program.
At the plan stage of programming, Scouts work together, with support from adults, to develop a program that involves activities from each of these areas. Through this process, Scouts are encouraged to make sure every activity is fun, challenging, adventurous and inclusive.
The Mackenzie River and its environs offer stunning, rugged scenery. It is an amazing place to camp, paddle, hike, ski, snowshoe or climb mountains.
Program activities for the Mackenzie River include shoreline park and roadside clean-up, developing outdoor skills (such as methods for lighting campfires), and being able to identify wild edible foods.
Adventures for the West Coast Trail foster social awareness, such as strengthening your faith, learning about other belief systems and exploring political issues that are relevant to Scouts. Activities may include visiting a church, planning a Scouts' Own or inviting a guest speaker to a meeting.
The Red Coat Trail can mean organizing and leading activities (such as games or camps) for other members of the Troop, or for Cubs.
Activites for the Rideau Canal include getting to know the public servants and services in your community through visits and guest speakers. Your Troop may visit a library or a fire hall, or invite a local politician to talk about the community's redevelopment plans for a local park. You and the Scouts in your Patrol can also roll up your sleeves to contribute to your community by painting park benches or performing trail maintenance at a conservation area.
Program activities associated with the Cabot Trail emphasize imagination. Think composing and performing songs and plays, dancing, writing, sculpting, inventing, painting and so on.

The sustainability badges are Scouts Canada’s support for international Scouting through the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations. Together we are working towards:
Each badge has 3 tiers for you to strive towards: bronze, silver, & gold.
Any Section can work on any tier–and you can mix and match your tiers! Maybe you're a Cub working on your silver Society and bronze Environment, or a Scout working on your gold Environment and bronze Society.
A balanced experience encourages you to explore a variety of themes, goals and topics!
Over the next eight-weeks, Sections will visit eight different countries, develop new skills through fun challenges and support their communities and the planet by leading exciting Scouts for Sustainability activities.
With the help of a symbolic transporting compass, imagine that your Scout Group can ping around the globe to different destinations quickly. In each country you’ll be faced with a challenge or a fun activity to champion as a Section. Once completed, your Section can collect a crest for that week and eventually curate the full composite crest!
Each week, Scouts will acquire a "GADGET" in pursuing their adventures; these items will be used in the activity for Week 8: Contraption Action, so make sure that you hold on to your GADGETS!
Thanks to the global movement that connects Scouts Canada to World Scouting, youth will enjoy weekly featured videos from each of the eight participating National Scout Organizations (NSO).
Get ready for an adventure-filled, fun eight weeks that will connect youth with Scouts from around the world, and will also help Sections leave a lasting and positive impact through our Scouts for Sustainability developmental outcomes.
Go to the official Around the World Challenge page for full details.
Join Les Stroud, a.k.a. Survivorman, as you embark on this epic eight-week challenge! Councils and Sections will be competing for bragging rights, and to accumulate weekly crests that form one ultimate composite crest. . . .and that’s not all. Embark on these adventurous challenges for a chance to win a virtual Section meet-n-greet with the Survivorman himself!
Earn a composite crest by completing at least six of the eight challenges. The composite crest is made up of individual crests, one for each challenge, that when put together create an ‘eight’ shape. There are also two bonus crests for the centre of each circle within the '8'
Also earn Ghost crests and other prizes – need we say more?
Submitting your Troop's weekly challenge via the online form will add your group’s progress to your council's leader-board online. Track how well your Council is doing compared to other Councils. This is a friendly challenge, but sometimes bragging-rights go a long way, so make sure you submit weekly! This is also how participation is tracked and crests are earned.
Go to the official Great 8 Challenge page for full details.
Special Interest Areas are six broad skill areas that you may choose to explore. Special Interest Areas are tailored to an individuals' own interests, and require you to set your own goals for the area you are pursuing or looking to complete a project in. The challenges are set by you using Plan>Do>Review>, all within a set time frame.
When proposing a Special Interest Area project, you set your own goals. You will need to take into account your existing level of knowledge, what you are interested in pursuing or learning about, and what skills you will need to develop to achieve your goals. The Plan section will cover how you will develop your new skills, what things you may need to plan (logistics, building an item etc.). The Do section will be where you try out your new skills, and in the Review section you will consider what you learnt and how it could be improved upon next time.
Whilst the intention for Special Interest Areas is to enable you to pursue topics or activities that specifically interest you, work may be completed individually, in patrols or as a whole section. No matter how the goals are being pursued, it should continue to be about an individual doing their best.
In the Scout Section, each badge should take approximately 2481218 hours of effort.

If a dot is above a dashed line, then it means your Troop has a higher percentage of Scouts at that stage than the national average.
Ideally, you'd want to have more of your Scouts above the dashed line at the higher stages, while having fewer above the dashed line at the lower stages.

This may be because:
Great News! As of July 1st, 2020 ScoutsTracker will be provided free-of-charge, courtesy of Scouts Canada!
Consequently, your licensing options below have been limited to those terms that won't unnecessarily exceed the date of the new Scouts Canada licence.
Your account is already licensed until that date, so there's no need to renew your licence.
What about a refund?
From a contractual perspective, you are entitled to use ScoutsTracker for the term that you paid for. That holds true whether there is a subsequent price increase, or a subsequent price decrease (i.e., such as becoming free in July).
So even though there's no contractual obligation to offer a refund, it would be understandably awesome to be able to get some money back if your Group has invested a lot of money into a long-term licence.
But at the same time, there's the fundamental fact that organization-wide licence is more heavily discounted than a Group licence. And there's the reality that the majority of the support costs associated with a licence occur at the beginning of the term. And finally, there's a real cost (of both time and money) associated with the process of issuing a refund. Consequently, there needs to be a balance between the desire to be generous by offering a refund, and the economics of doing so.
Therefore, the following options are being offered:
So why would you not automatically opt to get a refund? One thing to consider is that there hasn't been a price increase in around 6-7 years, so in the event that Scouts Canada subsequently decided to not renew the organization-wide licence, it is certain there would be a price hike at that time. Opting for the "Banked Time" option will allow you to continue using ScoutsTracker without having to immediately re-license at a higher price.
Even though you're not entitled to a refund, that's not necessarily a bad thing. One thing to consider is that there hasn't been a price increase in around 6-7 years, so in the event that Scouts Canada subsequently decided to not renew the organization-wide licence, it is certain there would be a price hike at that time. The "Banked Time" option will allow you to continue using ScoutsTracker without having to immediately re-license at a higher rate.

|Reason||Description||What to Do About It|
|hard-bounce||Typically a bad email address (e.g., "email@example.com"), or an obsolete address (e.g., the person changed jobs or email providers).||Check with the person and get an updated email address.|
|soft-bounce||Typically the person has exceeded their mail quota, or their mail server is not configured correctly.||Ask the person to check their email provider's account settings.|
|opted out||By law, it is not permitted to send emails to addresses that have explicitly opted out.||Instruct the person to go to "Account" | "My login" and change their Opt-In Email Preferences to re-enable receiving "Troop Emails".|
|spam||The person has flagged PRODUCT_PLAIN emails from you as being spam.||Ask the person to send an email to support@$HOST asking to be removed from the rejection list. The request must come from the email address that is undeliverable.|
|rejected||There was a problem delivering a previous email (e.g., a hard-bounce, or opted out) and subsequent emails won't even be attempted. In the case of soft-bounce rejections, the address will only be rejected for a day or two. In the case of opted out, the rejection is permanent. In most other cases, the rejection lasts one year.||Check the specific reasons listed above.|

But if this event is not really of interest to all Branches, then you can use the checkboxes below to control which Branches will see this event.
You can electronically create and submit an APPLICATION_FORM for this event through PRODUCT_PLAIN.
Similarly, your GC can electronically approve your APPLICATION_FORM_TERSE through PRODUCT_PLAIN.
To start a new APPLICATION_FORM_TERSE, click "New", above. You can also reopen a previously-submitted APPLICATION_FORM_TERSE.
To continue working on your previously-started APPLICATION_FORM_TERSE, click on the "Draft" submission in the list below. Or, you can instead reopen a previously-submitted APPLICATION_FORM_TERSE.
Tip: for Risk Category 1 events, you don't actually need to submit an APPLICATION_FORM_TERSE, although some people like to do so to keep their GC_TERSE fully-informed about all events. On the other hand, if you've been told that you must submit an APPLICATION_FORM_TERSE, you may want to confirm what the event's Risk Category actually should be, as having the correct Risk Category will help ensure you complete the APPLICATION_FORM_TERSE correctly.
Important: this event doesn't yet have a Risk Category. You'll need to select a Risk Category in order complete the APPLICATION_FORM_TERSE correctly.
Tip: PRODUCT_PLAIN will normally flag any Risk Category 2 or 3 event that does not yet have an approved APPLICATION_FORM_TERSE. However, for those situations in which you've manually submitted the required paperwork (e.g., you need to get Council or National approval for a tour permit, or your GC doesn't use PRODUCT_PLAIN), you can stop PRODUCT_PLAIN from complaining that you don't yet have an approved APPLICATION_FORM_TERSE enabling the "The APPLICATION_FORM_TERSE was submitted or approved outside of PRODUCT_PLAIN" setting, below.
To print-off or submit a previously-started APPLICATION_FORM, click on it in the list below. But to start a new APPLICATION_FORM_TERSE, or to reopen a previously-submitted APPLICATION_FORM_TERSE, you'll need to edit this event.
To print-off or submit a previously-started APPLICATION_FORM, click on it in the list below. But to continue working on your previously-started APPLICATION_FORM_TERSE, , or to reopen a previously-submitted APPLICATION_FORM_TERSE, you'll need to edit this event.
This APPLICATION_FORM was never submitted. As this event is now over, it is no longer possible for the SECTION_GENERIC LEADERS_GENERIC to complete and submit this APPLICATION_FORM_TERSE.
This APPLICATION_FORM has not been submitted. Therefore, you cannot approve it, yet. Please contact the SECTION_GENERIC LEADERS_GENERIC and ask them to complete the form and submit it, if this is an APPLICATION_FORM_TERSE you want to approve.
This APPLICATION_FORM was submitted, but as this event is now over, it is no longer possible to approve it.
You can approve this APPLICATION_FORM by clicking on "Approve" in the action menu.
This APPLICATION_FORM has already been approved. If changes need to be made (e.g, perhaps the Risk Category changed) then the SECTION_GENERIC LEADERS_GENERIC will have to re-open it, and then re-submit it.
Complete the form, below, then click "Submit".
The APPLICATION_FORM and any attachments that were flagged as needing to be included in the APPLICATION_FORM_TERSE will then be emailed to your GC. Your GC_TERSE will then be able to electronically approve your APPLICATION_FORM_TERSE.
To submit this APPLICATION_FORM to your GC, click "Submit".
Or, to continue working on this draft, you'll need to to re-edit this event and drill down to this APPLICATION_FORM_TERSE.
If you need to resend this previously-submitted APPLICATION_FORM to a different email address, then click "Resend".
But if you need to make some changes before resending, then you'll need to re-edit this event, drill down to this APPLICATION_FORM_TERSE, and then click "Reopen" to create an editiable copy of this APPLICATION_FORM that you can then resubmit.
Note: because this event has already happened, you can no longer edit or submit this APPLICATION_FORM.
Note: the generated form will comply with Scouts Canada Application version 1.
Electronic submission works by having you digitally sign the application (by providing your PRODUCT_PLAIN email and password).
Your GC will then automatically be sent (by email) a copy of the Application Form, including all the attachments.
Since this is Risk Category 1 event, no further action by you or your GC is required.
The email that your GC will receive will also contain a button that will allow them to accept your AAF by digitally signing the form (by providing their own ScoutsTracker email and password).
The approved Application Form will then be forwarded to the National (and possibly Council) office for archiving.
In this Troop account, your Application Form will show as being approved.
Note: Electronic submission only works if your Group has a PRODUCT_PLAIN Commissioner account! If not, unfortunately you'll have to submit them the old-fashioned way (by printing out and then scanning and/or submitting by hand).

This report lists all the events that require APPLICATION_FORMS.
If you feel there are some events that shouldn't be listed here consider the following options:
This page helps identify any problems required to approve APPLICATION_FORMS for your Group.
Note: if you habitually need to approve APPLICATION_FORMS_TERSE for another Group, you'll need to do that from a Commissioner account for that other Group. This account can only approve APPLICATION_FORMS_TERSE for sections that are identified as being in your Group*.
*However, if you temporarily have responsibility for another Group (e.g., in the process of amalgamating or splitting off), and you don't want to maintain a separate Commissioner account for that other Group, then you can approve the other Group's APPLICATION_FORMS_TERSE if you have all those other Sections change their "Public Profile" to indicate that they now belong to your Group (but have them enable "Use custom account name" to hang on to their original Group identity).
Problem: This account currently belongs to an unlisted Group.
Remedy: Go to "Account" | "Public Profile" (or click the button, below) and select the correct Group from the list of Groups (i.e., entering a custom name doesn't count!).
But what if your Group doesn't appear in the list of available Groups? Then contact support@$HOST and explain which Council and Area your Group should belong to.
Problem: This account needs to be the "official" account for for your Group.
Remedy: Go to "Account" | "Public Profile" (or click the button, below) and tick the "This is the official account of this Group" checkbox.
Problem: None of your Leaders are identified as the GC_TERSE.
Remedy: Go to "Account" | "Leaders" (or click the button, below), and click on the Leader who is the GC_TERSE, then click on "Role" and select "GC" from the list of possible roles.
But what if your GC_TERSE isn't on the list of Leaders? Then go to "Account" | "Leaders" (or click the button, below), and click "Add »".
But what if your Group doesn't currently have a GC_TERSE? Then you'll need to get someone like a Group Support Scouter or Council Relationship Manager to fill in. Contact your Council to find the best solution.
Problem: You have a Leader who has been identified as the GC_TERSE, but they have no login.
Remedy: Go to "Account" | "Leaders" (or click the button, below), and click on the Leader who is the GC_TERSE, then click on "Login" and give them a login.
But what if you have multiple Leader records for the person who is the GC_TERSE (some with logins, and some without)? Then go to "Account" | "Leaders" (or click the button, below), and click on the GC_TERSE record, then click "Merge" to merge that record with one of the duplicate(s).
Problem: You have a Leader who has been identified as the GC_TERSE, but their login is currently "Pending".
Remedy: Go to "Account" | "Leaders" (or click the button, below), and click on the Leader who is the GC_TERSE, then click on "Login" and choose which login permissions they should have.
Problem: You have a Leader who has been identified as the GC_TERSE, and they have a login, but they have opted out of receiving notification emails (which includes APPLICATION_FORMS_TERSE!)
Remedy: The GC_TERSE needs to sign in, and go to "Account" | "My Login", and opt in to receiving "Notification emails".
Hooray! You are able to approve APPLICATION_FORMS_TERSE!
But what if another Leader should have this responsibility? Then go to "Account" | "Leaders" and change their role to GC.
But what if you should have this responsibility? Then go to "Account" | "Leaders" and change your role to GC.
But what if you should have this responsibility? Then ask one of this account's administrators to change your role to GC
But what if one of the listed Leaders shouldn't have this responsibility? Then go to "Account" | "Leaders" and change their role to something other than GC, or mark that Leader as "Inactive" if they are no longer part of your Group.
You can complete the steps below at different times... e.g., you can update the Scouts who aren't returning at the end of the year, but not add the new Scouts and Leaders until you have all the final registration info.
Generally, this means moving up to Venturers. But additionally, if you have Scouts who have withdrawn from the Program, you can change their status to "Inactive - Withdrawn".
Generally, this means incrementing everyone's "year in program", resetting their roles and patrols. You can do this in multiple passes if you just want to modify one property at a time, or want to work on small groups of Scouts.
You can either add them manually (e.g., by clicking "Account" | "Scouts" | "Add"), but it's far faster to import the records from MyScouts.
You can do this by going to "Account" | "Scouts" | "Add". Likewise, you can manage your list of Leaders by going to "Account" | "Leaders".
ScoutsTracker enables youth and parent engagement, but only if they sign in. You can instruct new users (and remind existing ones) by going to "Account" | "Logins" | "Welcome Messages".
Each time you create a new meeting, ScoutsTracker will try to auto-increment the meeting number used by the most recent meeting, if your meeting naming scheme includes a number (e.g., "Mtg #1 - Welcome Back" or "1. Welcome Back", or "2017/16-1: Welcome Back"). So if you want to use numbered meeting names, then you'll want to create a first meeting with the number "1" in the name. This is also a good time to set your default location and time.
If you click on an empty meeting night on the calendar, it'll create a blank (auto-numbered) meeting for you. So with 30 or so clicks, you'll have a framework for your entire year's Program. You can do this now, or bit-by-bit throughout the year as you work on the plan with the Scouts.
If you always run a "Fall Camp", or have an "End-of-Year party", etc., you can view last year's event and then click on "Duplicate" to quickly add it to the (approximate) same time this year.
You can mark any outstanding payment balances as 'paid in full' (or 'refunded in full' if a refund was owed), and start the year with a clean slate.
You can complete the steps below at different times... e.g., you can Link Up the senior Scouts now, and then later come back here and do a Move Up during the summer.
Generally, this means conducting the personal progression reviews, using Journey Cards. The Scouts will then be progress to the next level or be ready to move up to Venturers.
You'll need the Venturers' Section Key to do this, if you're not already collaborating with them. Talk to one of the Venturers' Leaders to get their Section Key. You can do this first as a Link Up (which leaves the Scouts active in your Troop) if they will be participating in your summer events, and then later as a final Move Up (which marks them as "Inactive - Moved Up"). The final "Move Up" can be left as a task for the start of the next Scouting year.
If you have Scouts who are withdrawing from Scouting, you can change their status to "Inactive - Withdrawn".
After you've done the Personal Journey review, you'll want update the Scouts' Progression by going to "Home" | "Personal Progression" and drilling down on each Progression Level and clicking the "In Bulk" button to update the appropriate Scouts.
The section below you needs your Section Key in order to Move/Link Up their senior youth to your Troop. Your Section Key is: .
You can mark any outstanding payment balances as 'paid in full' (or 'refunded in full' if a refund was owed). However, if you have any summer events planned, you can defer this task until the start of the next year.
Importing from MyScouts allows you to quickly enter basic information for both Scouts and Leaders. You can import from MyScouts multiple times without fear of creating duplicate entries. Note however, that you will get duplicates created for any Scout or Leader form who you haven't specified a MyScouts member number.
You can also import data from your own spreadsheet, as long as your spreadsheet follows this format.

A "master" login is one that can access any account that is in your Grouphas redeemed your licence's activation code.
Furthermore, the "master" login cannot be deleted by section account administrators, making it a reliable way to re-establish account administrators after a significant leadership turnover in a section.
Setting the "master" login will also apply to accounts that previously redeemed your licence's activation code, and will automatically set them up to collaborate with this account. The "master" login will also become the only login capable of changing each licenced account's "Public Profile" (e.g., setting the Area & Group).
Consequently, all emails sent out by ScoutsTracker will now originate from a send-only email $HOST address, but the email will include a REPLY-TO field that will make sure that when any recipient clicks "Reply" to your message, the response will go back to your email address.
E.g., in your case, an email that you send out will come from " <>", but when the recipient clicks "Reply" their message will go to "".
You can change your Troop's send-only email address below, if you want, but it's a good idea to include your Group name and your Branch, to help distinguish your emails from the other sections in your Group.
NOTE: you can't actually read any emails sent to ... but the REPLY-TO field means that recipients' replies to your emails will go back to you.

You can upload an image of the crest that will be handed out to Scout participants at this event.
Uploading an image will automatically create an earnable crest under "Home" | "Other" | "Event Crests". This crest will have a single requirement that is automatically satisfied when a Scout is marked as having attended the event.
I.e., all you have to do is mark the youth as having attended the event, and this crest will be ready to award!
You can set the initial inventory for this crest by going to "Account" | "Inventory". As you award the crest to Scouts (e.g., via "Reports" | "Ready to Award") the inventory will be reduced, just like any other badge.
Note: all events that upload the same crest will share the same inventory item. This means that multiple shifts of an event (e.g., Apple Day) can all update the same inventory.
A project is a significant undertaking that addresses the Sustainable Development Goals, and is:
Since projects should be organized and youth-led, you can expect to spend a meeting or two in the planning phase. And since the projects should be meaningful, it wouldn't be unusual for your project to take a couple of events (possibly over an extended duration) to execute. And, in the spirit of Plan-Do-Review, you should include some time to review whether your project was impactful.
Note, a single project can address multiple Goals, e.g., your project could address both 14 Life below Water and 1 Zero Hunger. But, concentrate on having greater impact over specific Goals than trying to cover all of the Goals at the same time.
Remember, the work you do on your project can also count towards other badges and work, and vice versa!
And don't forget to consider opportunities to link with other Sections, because everyone has role to play to build a better world.
A new merged LeaderScout will be created by using the information from each of the two current Leaders'Scouts' records. When only one LeaderScout has records of a particular type, it is a simple matter of copying the information from whichever LeaderScout has the records. In the case of this merger, both LeadersScouts have records of the following types, and so the listed strategies will be used.
Note that merging of records is inherently complicated, and that sometimes the correct solution can be open to interpretation. As such, it is strongly recommended you print off the Scouts' Record Sheets before proceeding with the merging.

Is this Leader also a Youth member in another account?
If so, then you can enter their "ScoutsTracker ID" from the other account, and all subsequent events that this Leader attends (as part of this account) will also result in a Personal copy of the event being created in their Home account. The Youth can then be given credit in their Home account for their participation in this Troop's events.
Is this Scout also a Youth member in another account?
Is the other account the primary place to record their Program progression (e.g., badges)? Note: a Youth can belong to multiple accounts, but only one of them is considered their "Home" account.
If so, then you can enter their "ScoutsTracker ID" from the other account, and all subsequent events that this Scout attends (as part of this account) will also result in a Personal copy of the event being created in their Home account. The Youth can then be given credit in their Home account for their participation in this Troop'sevents.
For safety-related qualifications, is a serious violation of Organization policy to falsely or misleadingly claim qualifications.
For audit purposes, you will be listed as the person who approved this qualification.
Note: if the Time Zone and/or Daylight Savings setting are not correct, then the times for the events in your schedule will likely appear to be wrong (e.g., an event that actually starts at 8:00 could appear to start at 9:00). Furthermore, any events that you add to the schedule will likely show the wrong times, for everyone else.
ScoutsTracker just uses your computer's date and time settings, so to set them up correctly, follow these instructions.
