Scouting – what is it? You may have heard of it but don't know how it is relevant to today's youth?
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 can take a constructive place in society as responsible citizens, and as members of their local, national and international communities.
Scouts is the most successful youth organisation in Australia – not to mention the world – with thousands of boys and girls enjoying an almost unlimited range of activities. Scouting in the Northern Territory is no exception. Scouting offers youth the opportunity to learn for themselves through experience, about being an individual and a team member, and about being a participant and a leader.
Scouting youth are given the opportunity to grow and develop to their full potential whilst understanding that the world is bigger than each of us as individuals. Scouts accept the world’s diverse range of peoples, religions and cultures as equals, each having equal rights within the global village in which we live. Scouting is about helping other people and being humble in the process.
