11 to 15 years
Scouts is one of the best kept secrets for young people aged 11 – 15 and no wonder! It is the biggest and most successful youth organisation in Australia – not to mention the world – with thousands of boys and girls enjoying an almost unlimited range of activities. And there’s always room for more!
Don’t get lost!
As a scout you’ll receive expert instruction in a wide variety of outdoor skills, together with the all important basic theory to make sure you don’t get lost and can deal with life’s emergencies.
You’ll go on camps with a few friends or join thousands of boys and girls for fun and adventure at a national Jamboree.
Your confidence will build and you’ll learn how to make decisions and work as part of a team. In a small group called a Patrol, an older, more experienced Scout will be your Patrol Leader and help develop your skills. Weekly meetings are held to build up skill levels, play games and have fun and plan for weekend adventures. You’ll quickly become familiar with equipment and the right way to use it.
