About Scouts in general

Scouts has the aim of developing young people physically, intellectually, spiritually, emotionally and socially. Scouting emphasises nature, adventure, citizenship, leadership and having FUN!!! Join the world’s largest youth organisation – SCOUTS!


JOEYS (6-7-8 years)

You can jump into Joeys and have lots and lots of fun! The Joeys’ motto is HOP: Help Other People.

Boys and girls in Joey Scouts have lots of adventure and make new friends. You’ll learn all about nature, sing songs, go on fun trips, make crafts, play games and even do some cooking! Sometimes we have special visitors who’ll help Joeys Scouts with nature knowledge.

Do you know how to cook chocolate spiders? Or how to make a waterscope and see under the water? You can learn this at Joeys. You can even make your own frog puppets, and earn your very own badges.

When you’re a Joey Scout you’ll have a special Joey Scout scarf, a woggle to keep it in place, and your own Joey Scout shirt.

CUBS (9-10-11 years)

Cub Scouts have a lot of fun doing a lot of interesting things! There are games to play, codes and skills to learn, places to see and new friends to meet. Cub Scouts all help each other, and try to help other people too. And you’ll be able to collect special badges to put on your uniform to show your achievements.

Cub Scouts can earn achievement badges by doing things that interest them and by learning new skills like cycling, electronics, sports, cookery, boating, writing and more. There are also special Boomerang Badges earned by doing things like tying knots, first aid, hiking in the bush and building models. There are three levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold Boomerang Badges.

Cub Scouts also have a special Cub Scout scarf, a woggle to keep it in place, and their own Cub Scout shirt.

You’ll soon be making friends with the other Cub Scouts and having a terrific time!

SCOUTS (12-13-14 years)

Scouts do anything and everything…. all the fun stuff you don’t get to do at home!  Whether it’s hiking, canoeing, rock climbing, performing on stage in a Gang Show or sitting around a fire toasting marshmallows with a bunch of friends… you choose!

VENTURERS (15-16-17 years)

Together with your Venturer friends, you’ll make important decisions, set goals and work together as a team to succeed in whatever you choose to do.

Your Scout Leaders are there to support your decisions and help you develop spiritually, physically, socially, intellectually and emotionally.

They’ll teach you heaps of practical skills like how to build rope bridges and flying foxes, how to do basic first aid, and how to light a fire with nothing but two sticks…. (maybe)!

There is a multi-level Award Scheme to keep you constantly pushing yourself to achieve your personal best. You can learn about lightweight camping, bush navigation, recognising and dealing with dangers like bush fires, water safety and heaps more… and yes, you’ll learn how to tie some pretty useful knots!

Be Prepared… for Adventure!
