You can join 1st Ingersoll Traditional Explorers Association for about 75.00 per year, (which is the cost of the insurance and national registration). Uniforms are reasonably priced, and must be ordered upon registration.
We are located at St. James Angican Church, Oxford St., Ingersoll. (Side entrance at Frances St.) Please Check the "PROGRAMS" link for appropriate day and time of meetings.
"THERE ARE NO SALARIED OR PAID POSITIONS IN THIS NOT-FOR-PROFIT SCOUTING ORGANIZATION & WE ARE FULLY INSURED!"
We live by Lord Baden Powell's original laws and mottos, as found in his book
"Scouting for Boys"
Although originally intended for boys, interest by girls could not be ignored. Both male and female members are equally welcome to join.
We offer 4 sections in specific age catagories: Otters,
Timberwolves, Explorers and Sr. Explorers. A 5th section, Rover
Knights, is available for adults wishing to carry on the Scouting
tradition while serving their community.
Appropriate leadership is assured in all offered sections.
Some modifications have been made to reflect the changes in technology and the world today, but the basic principles as developed by Baden-Powell remain intact.
How We Are Organized
| Otters | Timberwolves | Explorers | Sr. Explorers | Rover Knights|
| Local Group Scouter | Group Council |

| District Council |

| Traditional Explorers Association Council of Ontario |

All sections are controlled locally. All other levels are for guidance, assistance, inter-group promotions and events, training, insurance negotiating and other program wide and cost saving measures, program By-Laws, Policy-Organization and Rules (PO&R) translations and conformity. Any changes to our By-Laws and/or PO&R are by a full vote of all our adult membership. We all have a say in this truly democratic Scouting Movement.
