What is the Aim of Scouting?
The Aim of the Scout Association of Australia is to encourage the physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual development of young people so that they take a constructive place in society as responsible citizens, and as members of their local, national and international communities
What is Scouting?
Scouting is a worldwide movement that has shaped the development of youth and adults for more than 100 years. Scouts are in every part of our community, and Scouts is the biggest and most successful youth organisation in Australia. More than 20,000 boys, girls, and adults in New South Wales from wide cultural or religious backgrounds or with an intellectual or physical disability enjoy an almost unlimited range of activities.
How does Scouts work?
Scouting achieves its aim through a system of progressive self education, known as the Scout Method, the principal elements of which are:
Voluntary membership of a uniformed group which, guided by adults, and is increasingly self governed in its successive age groups.
Commitment to a code of living as expressed in the Scout Promise and Scout Law, the meaning of which is expanded as the members grow towards maturity.
The provision of a wide range of fun, constructive and challenging activities, including opportunities for adventure and exploration both indoors and outdoors.
The provision of opportunities for leadership and responsibility.
Learning by doing.
Encouragement of activity in small groups.
An award scheme which encourages participation in its full range of activities and provides recognition of individual achievements.
