Why choose scouts?

There are lots of organisations in Australia that offer activities for young people, so why choose Scouts? Scouts Australia’s age-related progressive program is unique – no other organisation offers such a diverse variety of activities and experiences across such a broad age-range. 

Children and young adults aged from 6 to 25 can join at any stage of Scouting and participate in a program that encourages them to grow through adventure by experiencing new challenges, making new friends, building confidence, taking responsibility for themselves, and being provided with opportunities to explore their own abilities and interests. Perhaps the most important thing, however, is that Scouts have fun!

Why not become a leader or volunteer

Leader roles vary through the Sections, as youth members take more responsibility for their activities as they progress in age.

Scout Leaders come from all walks of life, from parents of Scouts, to childhood Scouts, to people with no Scouting experience at all!
