Scouts NSW provides young people aged 5 to 25 with fun and challenging opportunities to grow through adventure.

Scouts is one of the world's largest and most successful youth organisations. Scouts NSW has over 17,000 youth and adult members, from a wide range of cultural and religious backgrounds, and with varying abilities.

Scouts NSW puts young people first. With a youth led, adult supported approach, our youth members remain at the forefront of our program. Discover the Youth Journey for yourself!

While Scouts NSW is a youth led organisation, it wouldn't run without the support of its adult community. Find out how you can help.
