Hone your outdoor survival skills and gain valuable life experience at Scouts!
Scouts also gain a lot of valuable life skills such as confidence, resilience, leadership and responsibility.
Scouts have the opportunity to meet people from all over the world at Australian Jamborees or even international Jamborees! You’ll make lasting friendships and create memories that will stay with you for your entire lifetime.
Scouts focuses on allowing young people to develop their confidence and teaches them how to work as part of a team. Scouts learn essential outdoor safety skills as well as participate in a variety of physical and intellectual challenges. The programs are designed to target each young person's own special interests, encouraging them to enjoy their favourite hobbies using meaningful badges and awards.
Scouts do anything and everything… all the fun stuff you don’t get to do at home! Whether it’s hiking 30km over two days, canoeing, rock climbing, or sitting around a fire toasting marshmallows with a bunch of friends… you choose! You’ll become a member of a Scout Patrol within a larger Scout Troop. Together you’ll make important decisions, set goals, and work together as a team to succeed in whatever you choose to do.
Scouts is the third section of Scouting, for boys and girls aged 11-14 years. It gives young people the opportunity to take part in a range of activities that teach important life skills - while having fun and keeping active!
