Prepare for the New Youth Program

The Adventure Begins

The first step in your journey to transition to the New Youth Program is to complete ‘The Adventure Begins Section Council Checklist’. Section Councils will use this checklist to mark off the successful completion of each element of The Adventure Begins.

The Adventure Begins challenges your Group to embed the fundamentals of Scouting in your regular program. For more information about The Adventure Begins, please click here.


The Adventure Begins Checklist outlines the four key components a Group must demonstrate before applying to the New Youth Program. These include:

• The SPICES and their Educational Objectives
• The Scout Method (with emphasis on Youth Leading, Adults Supporting; Community Involvement; and Promise and Law)
• Section Councils
• Plan>Do>Review>
