Scouting is a worldwide movement that has shaped the development of youth and adults for more than 100 years and scouts are in every part of our community.

Young Australians want fun, friends, excitement and adventure and becoming a member of scouts has all that and more.

As parents, we value honesty, respect, trustworthiness, responsibility and confidence in our children. Joining your local scouts can help children develop these traits while taking part in safe outdoor activities.

Southern Highlands scouts deliver these fun and diverse programs that develop skills for life. They meet at Mittagong Scout Hall in Louisa Street where boys and girls and their parents are welcome.

Scouts is also the biggest and most successful youth organisation in Australia. More than 16,000 boys, girls, and adults in New South Wales from wide cultural or religious backgrounds or with an intellectual or physical disability enjoy an almost unlimited range of activities.

The aim of scouting is to encourage the physical, intellectual, social, and spiritual development of young people so they may play a constructive role in society as responsible citizens and as members of their local and international communities.

Scouts offer a strong and active program that inspires young people to do their best and to always be prepared. If you'd like to know more about scouts, visit southernhighlandsscouts.com to enrol your child.
