Gold Coast Region Scouts

Scouts - 11 to 14 Years

Scouts is for boys and girls aged 11 to 14 and is the most well known section of the Scouting Movement – Scouts is where the action is! If you are passionate about action then you’re a Scout! Everyday will make your adrenaline rush when you participate in a range of action-packed activities. Whether you’re mastering the art of outdoor safety, participating in amateur radio shows and performing arts productions, or attending the ultimate Scouting adventure of a Jamboree, you’ll learn life-long skills that you can teach your friends. At Scouts you’ll become a member of a Scout Patrol and your Patrol will work with other Patrols to form a larger Scout Troop. Together you’ll make important decisions, set critical goals, and depend on each other to succeed. And when you do succeed, you can earn achievement badges! Action is at the core of all Scouting activities. Whether they are tackling a river in a kayak or learning knot tying at a Troop meeting, our program ensures that our Scouts never stand still!

Gold Coast Region Venturer Scouts

Venturers - 15 to 17 Years

Venturer Scouts is for males and females aged 15 to 17 who never turn down a good challenge and love to push themselves to their limits. Venturer Scouts never turn down a challenge, in fact, they make their own! Scaling a 30m rock-face or abseiling into caves may frighten most people but Venturer Scouts face the challenge head on and then go white water kayaking! As a Venturer Scout you’ll work in Units with other Venturer Scouts and your Adult Leaders are always available to provide you with advice, encouragement, and support. As a Venturer Scout you’re given the freedom to choose your own activities, depending on your interests, because we know that you’re most motivated to achieve when you’re passionate about what you do. As a Venturer Scout I’ve learnt the importance of challenging myself in order to grow. With the help of my friends at Scouts I’ve managed to experience some awesome things while working to achieve my goals, which is the best reward ever.

The commencement for advancement in Sections may vary up to 6 months.

Gold Coast Region Rover Scouts

Rovers - 18 to 25 Years

Rover Scouts is for males and females aged 18 until their 26th Birthday who love socialising, challenging themselves, and seizing once-in-a-lifetime opportunities!

Life after school can be isolating for most young adults, but not for Rover Scouts! Rover Scouts are a group of mates who believe in experiencing life to its fullest and seizing opportunities.

Joining a Rover Scout Crew could be one of the most important decisions in your life. It offers opportunities to make new friends, have fun, experience once-in-a-life-time adventures, and have unforgettable social experiences while you work with your fellow Rover Scouts to develop your leadership and organisational skills. Rover Scouts personalise their programs to suit their members and each Crew are fully independent and responsible for managing their own groups, projects and campsites. As a Rover Scout, be prepared to expect the unexpected.

Gold Coast Region Leaders & Adults

Leaders & Adult Members - 18+

Leaders are the backbone of our movement. If you are looking for an adventure and the chance to help young people build a solid and positive foundation for their futures than you should become a Leader.

Leaders provide opportunities, inspire teamwork and perfect their abilities.

Why should I become a leader? Leaders are crucial to the success of the Scouting Movement. As a Leader you will have access to a wide variety of resources, an opportunity to give back to the community, and the experience to educate Youth Members in the values and skills most important for being a good citizen. As a Leader you will achieve satisfaction from helping Youth Members set and achieve their own goals, while being there to help them when they fail and encourage them to continue. However, you will find that your proudest achievement will be building a strong bond of trust and friendship with the Youth Members.
