About Scouts

Build your confidence, work as part of a team, be involved in amazing activities and Be Prepared for any challenge that life may throw at you.

Scouts allows boys and girls to develop their confidence and learn to work as part of a team. Once you become a Scout you could find yourself exploring a mountain wilderness, helping in emergency rescues, photographing wild animals, sending coded messages, searching for gold, canoeing down a swift river, hiking and camping out in the bush or sailing across the ocean with the salt spray in your face. Build your confidence, make decisions, work as part of a team… and Be Prepared for any challenge that life may throw at you.
