Scouting is not just about knots, woggles and big shorts, and it's not just for boys either! Did you know that Dan Carter was a Cub Scout? Many famous sports people, astronauts and politicians got their start in life through Scouting and you can benefit too.
There are 16,000 young people in Scouting in New Zealand, spread across five sections: Keas, Cubs, Scouts, Venturers and Rovers. Each section has its own balanced programme of activities, badges and awards.

Scouts are the third section of the Scouting movement after Keas and Cubs for boys and girls aged 11-14 years.
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.
Not only will you gain practical skills, you will also gain life skills, such as leadership, responsibility and confidence.
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.
