Be Prepared... for action and adventure!
* The commencement for advancement in sections may vary up to six months
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, performing on stage in a Gang Show 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.
Your Scout Leaders are there to support your decisions and help you develop spiritually, physically, socially, intellectually and emotionally.
They'll teach you heaps of practical skills like how to build rope bridges and flying foxes, how to do basic first aid, and how to light a fire with nothing but two sticks... (maybe)!
There is a multi-level Award Scheme to keep you constantly pushing yourself to achieve your personal best. You can learn about lightweight camping, bush navigation, recognising and dealing with environmental dangers (like bushfires), water safety and heaps more… and yes, you'll learn how to tie some pretty useful knots!
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.
When you’re a Scout, there’s always something new and different to try. Get out there and extend yourself, test your limits and Be Prepared... for new adventure!
Are you up for the challenge? Contact your State Branch for more info
or freecall 1800 SCOUTS (1800 726 887) to find your nearest Group.
* Scouts transition to the Venturer Scout Section on, or prior to, their 15th birthday.
