We believe in the value of the work we do, challenging young New Zealanders to be active, extra-ordinary and adventurous...

Kia Ora and welcome to the SCOUTS New Zealand website.  There are 16,000 SCOUTS in New Zealand, and this number is growing every day.  We equip young people aged 6 to 26 with life skills of problem-solving, teamwork, citizenship, and healthy living; and provide them with access to a large range of outdoor activities including our specialised caving, photography, flying, canoe and snow schools. 

SCOUTS offers adventure and activities for both GIRLS and BOYS - Call 0800 SCOUTS to join!

SCOUTS offers great opportunities to both girls and boys aged 6 to 26 to experience adventure through a wide range of activities.  We offer the best value extra-mural activities in New Zealand.

Family and Whanau are welcome to join the adventure with their children, to enjoy spending quality time together trying fun new experiences and challenges together within SCOUTS.

We are always looking for Volunteers to help keep our numbers growing and would love to hear from anyone who has a few spare hours a week and is keen to help deliver a great programme to New Zealand youth.  There are many ways to volunteer, so choose one that suits and experience SCOUTS for yourself.

Hear from some of our Leaders in the video below, and contact us on 0800 SCOUTS to find out how you can start the journey of learning, discovery, adventure and fun with your child.  Around 90% of Scout volunteers say that their skills and experiences have been useful in their work or personal life too!
