Scouts provides fun youth development activities, building resilient and confident boys and girls aged 6 to 25 in the Joey Scout, Cub Scout, Scout, Venturer Scout and Rover Scout Sections.  We also welcome adult volunteer Scout Leaders.  Scouts has opportunities for the whole family to be involved. Everyone is welcome, and we value the diversity of our members. 



The Aim of Scouting is to encourage the physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual development of young people so that they take a constructive place in society as a member of their local, national and international community.

The most worth-while thing is to try to put happiness into the lives of others.
— Robert Baden-Powell, Founder of Scouts
