Buderim Scout Group

The Scout section is for boys and girls aged 11 to 14 years and offers an amazing array of activities designed to teach important life skills and get Scouts social and active!

Scouts, as a section, focuses on allowing young people to develop their confidence and teaches them how to work as part of a team. At Scouts you’ll become a member of a Scout Patrol with approximately six other Scouts. Your Patrol will work with other Patrols to form a larger Scout Unit. In your Patrol, an older, more experienced Scout will be your Patrol Leader and help develop your skills. Scouting is youth-led, adult-supported. As a Scout, you get to choose what you want to do, everyone from the youngest to the Patrol Leader has a say and the Scout Leader is there to advise & support.

Scouts learn essential outdoor safety skills as well as participate in a variety of physical and intellectual challenges. The programs are designed to target each young person’s own special interests, encouraging them to enjoy their favourite hobbies. Did you know that Scouts Queensland have their very own theatre groups? It’s completely optional to join, but a great way to develop your acting, singing and dancing skills if that’s where your interests lie.

Action is at the core of all Scouting activities. Epic bushwalks and camping expeditions, getting out on the water in a kayak, canoe or sailboat or even going up in a plane or helicopter on a visit to an Air Activity Centre are just some of the adventures Scouts get up to!

At your weekly meetings you’ll learn the skills you need to plan, prepare and go on adventures, and by the time you’ve been a Scout for a few years, you’ll find yourself being able to take yourself on three-day hikes – just you and a group of your Scouting friends. You even get to choose your own menu and cook it yourselves!

You might even get the chance to travel to another part of Australia or even another part of the world. Scout Jamborees are amazing events where around 10,000 Scouts come together to camp, do challenging and fun activities like abseiling, obstacle courses, scavenger hunts, and water activities.

There are badges to be earned and you will learn skills that will stay with you for life – such as light weight camping and bush navigation, how to prepare and cook your own food, how to recognise the dangers of our environment including bush fires, how to be safe around beaches, rivers and lakes and yes, how to tie some pretty useful knots.

Scouting is definitely fun and it prepares you for life in the adult world by giving you responsibility for your own actions and progress. Your achievements will lay a foundation for your future success, and there’s lots of fun to be had along the way.

Scout families are welcome to get involved too! There’s lots of opportunities for the whole family to make new friends and feel part of the community.
