Scouts – School years 7-10

Action-packed activities form the core of being a Scout, encouraging young people to make their own decisions and to explore the world around them…

Scouts are the third section of the Scouting movement after Keas and Cubs for boys and girls from year 7 to year 10 at school. (Approx age: 11 to 14 years old)

At Scouts, we do anything and everything – all the fun things you have always wanted to do.  Whether it is outdoor based activities such as tramping, camping, biking, rafting or indoor based such as scout craft, photography or pioneering – what you do is your choice.

We have a progressive Award Scheme based on the four cornerstones of outdoors, community, personal development and new experiences to keep you constantly pushing yourself to achieve your personal best.  Not only will you gain practical skills, you will also gain life skills, such as leadership, responsibility and confidence.

You will become a member of a Scout Patrol within a larger Scout Troop.  Together, you will make all the decisions, set goals and work together as a team to succeed in whatever you choose to do.

There is a huge network of Scouts throughout New Zealand and an estimated 40 million members worldwide.  In New Zealand over 4000 boys and girls are active members of the Scout section and there is always something new and exciting to try.
