Why join Scouts?

Scouting is the biggest and most successful youth organisation in Australia

At Gordonvale Scouts we focus on personal growth through adventure, helping young people achieve their full potential through a program that offers fun, adventure, challenge, friendships, a sense of freedom and achievement.

With approximately 15,000 boys, girls and adults in Queensland from various cultural or religious backgrounds and with varying abilities, there is something for everyone in Scouts!

The scouting adventure varies from age group to age group. It could be as simple as the first night away from home, the first obstacle course, the first camp, attending a Cuboree, Jamboree or a Venture, learning to paddle a canoe, making and sailing a raft, learning to plant a tree, abseiling from 10 metres or 100 metres, right through to flying a plane, climbing a mountain, traveling overseas, meeting Scouts from different cultures or undertaking international service projects.

For some more information follow the links below to each of the sections to see what our Scouts get up too and the great adventures they have.
