Scouting provides young people with fun and challenging opportunities to grow through adventure. It is separated into aged based sections, all of which are focused on developing:

  • self respect
  • confidence
  • leadership
  • teamwork
  • creativity
  • environmental awareness
  • community involvement

It’s a program that is based on over a century of Scouting experience from around the world, updated for today. It opens up a world away from screens and it offers experiences that last a lifetime.
“I owe a lot to Scouting. It had to be the most fantastic influence on my life. It taught me responsible risk-taking.” Dick Smith
