Scouts Australia provides young Aussies aged 6 to 25 with fun and challenging opportunities to grow through adventure. Scouts Australia has around 66,000 members, making it the largest youth movement in the nation. No other organisation offers such a diverse range of activities for young people across such a wide range of ages!

Today's Scouts can take part in an extraordinary variety of outdoor activities, from ‘traditional Scouting skills’ such as camping and bushcraft, through to more extreme challenges such as abseiling, overnight hiking, rafting, canoeing, canyoning, snow activities, rock climbing, sailing… even flying!

Scouts can get involved in performing arts, leadership development, community service, amateur radio operation, environmental projects, large-scale Australian events such as Cuborees, Jamborees and Ventures, international events, and service projects in developing countries. Scouts also learn valuable practical skills such as first aid and cooking… and fun skills, like how to build a ballista and fire wet sponges at their mates!

The Scouts Australia Youth Program also incorporates contemporary issues such as youth health, 'responsible risk-taking', vocational skills, and issues pertinent to Indigenous Australians, and offers an Award Scheme that encourages participation in the full range of activities available and provides recognition of individual achievement.

Scouts Australia’s ongoing success is due to enthusiastic and committed adult volunteers from all walks of life who love adventure and take great pride in encouraging our young Aussies to reach their full potential.

Scouts Australia is an accredited member of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM), which has over 30 million members in 161 National Scout Organisations around the world.

All Scouts commit to a code of living as expressed in the Promise and Law.

In Queensland, more than 10,000 young people aged between 6 and 26 years are actively involved in a wide range of Scouting activities - from the Scouting in Schools program through to Scouts of the Air for young people living on isolated properties in North-West Queensland.

Over 3,500 adults and uniform Leaders voluntarily give up a substantial amount of their spare time as part of their commitment to developing young people as they progress through the program to become the community Leaders of the future.
