Scouts are 10 - 14 years old!
The Scout section is based on the Patrol system where the members of the Patrol monitor and administer the award scheme. The award scheme is designed to enhance life skills as well as outdoor adventure skills.
There are many activities Scouts can choose to do on a local, regional, state, national and international level. Every 3 years the Scout section hosts a national Jamboree where 10,000+ members from all around the Australia attend.
The highest achievement a Scout can attain is the Adventurer (green) cord, all Scouts are encouraged to have a go at achiving this!
