First Lexington Scouting Group | Waterloo, Ontario

Text Here

First Lexington has a long tradition in Waterloo, Ontario. Named for the Waterloo area that included the former small settlement of Lexington (where Bridge Street and Lexington now meet), First Lexington Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Venturers have grown through the generations into young adults. The exemplary leaders of First Lexington Scouting group are proud to be part of bringing these youth into young adulthood, along with our local sponsor, the North Waterloo Optimists.

With  experienced leaders and  enthusiastic youth, 1st Lexington has built a reputation as a group that emphasizes camping, skill building and responsibility. Mixing fun with planning and commitment to Scouting programs and ideals, First Lexington has become one of the most successful groups in the area.
