Scouts & Guides
Scouting is a growing world wide youth movement with over 25 million members and over 80,000 in Australia. Scouting focuses on young people from six to 26 years of age and provides them with opportunities for fun and adventure as well as helping them to develop skills gain self- confidence and learn teamwork and initiative. Young males and females can progress through the five Scouting sections – Joey Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts, Venturer Scouts and Rovers or can start in any section depending on their ages. Scouts are supported by a Group committee made up of interested parents and other adults in the community. As Scouts gain maturity and experience, they are encouraged to take on more responsibility for organising and overseeing their own activities.

Guiding is the largest movement of girls and women in the world and offers challenging, active programs for girls aged 5 to 18+. Girl Guides gives an all round education for girls, building resilience and responsible attitudes. Girls meet weekly as a community based unit and girls enjoy the fun, friendship and adventure of Guiding, with support and mentoring from Guide Leaders and Unit Helpers. Community volunteers are welcome to talk with Girl Guides SA about hands-on opportunities for leadership in Guides.
