About Us

Established in 1950, the 3rd West Van Scout Group has provided programs continuously to Scout aged youth in our community.

​In the summer of 1971, ten Scouts and three Venturers from the 3rd West Van Group hiked the West Coast Trail - before it became a National Park - and started what has become a tradition of wilderness adventure for the group.

The 3rd West Van Scouts and Venturers have undertaken self propelled wilderness trips in all seasons and in many parts of our vast province and beyond. For young people who aspire to adventure through lightweight travel in the back country, our group provides an excellent path to achieving it.
