What Scouts Do

Scouts are provided with the opportunity for personal growth through challenging, interesting activities that meet their needs.

Scouting encourages hobbies, interests and skills and helps to develop leadership and a sense of achievement.

Scout Troop and Patrol activities

Trained Leaders and Assistants volunteer their time to run Scout Troops.

  • Weekly meetings – plan weekend adventures, work as a team, have a say in decision making, become a Patrol Leader or Assistant Patrol Leader and help plan the Scout Program.
  • Training Scheme Activities – Scouts are exposed to a huge range of activities based on adventure and personal interests, such as abseiling, caving, watching the sun rise, hiking, photography, orienteering, performance arts, operating amateur radio, bush survival skills, tying and using knots, learn about water safety, camping and cooking.
  • Jamboree – held every three years, this 10 day camp is the ultimate Scout adventure where thousands of Scouts from around Australia and overseas meet for outdoor activities, challenges and entertainment.
  • Leadership course – a two-day course designed to provide suitable leadership skills for Scouts, based on understanding the Patrol System and the Scout Award Scheme, leadership, problem solving and task management, citizenship, and planning/programming.
  • Adventurous Activities- such as abseiling, snorkeling, rock climbing, sailing, land yachting... and more!
  • Family adventures – the whole family is encouraged to get involved with Scout activities like canoeing, bike riding and camps.

There is so much to do in Scouts and it is only limited by your imagination and your capacity for fun!
