Scouting is a worldwide movement that has shaped the development of youth and adults for over 100 years.  It is the biggest and most successful youth organisation in Australia.  Scouting is for girls and boys aged from 6 to young adults of 26 years. The aim of Scouts Australia is to encourage the physical, mental and social development of young people so that they may take a constructive place in society as responsible citizens.


Scouting is a voluntary, multicultural, non-political, non-denominational, educational and developmental movement for young people.  It is open to all without distinction of gender, origin, race or creed. Scouting offers young people the opportunity to develop their full emotional, intellectual, physical, social and spiritual potentials as individuals, as responsible global citizens, and as members of their local, national and international communities.
