What’s so cool about being a Scout?
If you are passionate about adventure then you’re a Scout! Whether you’re mastering the art of outdoor safety, participating rafting competitions and camping the great outdoors, or attending the ultimate Scouting adventure of a Jamboree, you’ll learn life-long skills that you can teach your friends.
At Scouts you’ll become a member of a Scout Patrol and you’re Patrol will work with other Patrols to form a larger Scout Troop. Together you’ll make important decisions, set critical goals, and depend on each other to succeed. And when you do succeed, you can earn achievement badges!

Dad & Mum: scouts also learn self-reliance, leadership, teamwork and community service, building a person of character. There’s more to scouting than tying a knot!
