Scouting is the largest youth development organisation in Australia and the world and is a leader in this country's non-formal education sector.
Scouting, which has been in existence since 1907, and in Australia since 1908, has the aim of developing young people physically, intellectually, spiritually, emotionally and socially.
The Banksia Scout Group is part of the Central Coast Region.
We are an active Scout Group providing a great way for the leaders of
tomorrow to learn adventure skills and sense of community through crafts, outdoor activity and challenges.
Scouting is for boys and girls from ages 6 to 26 in
sections called Joey Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts, Venturer Scouts, and Rover Scouts. Banksia Scout Group has active sections covering the Joey Scout, Cub Scout, Scout and Venturer Scout sections.
By enrolling your child in Scouts you are giving them the opportunity for
a fun educational experience above and beyond what the school system offers. In this respect Scouting is often
referred to as non-formal education.
Scouting helps young people to meet and conquer challenges, enabling them
to develop leadership skills and confidence that will serve them
through their entire lives. All activities are in line with the Aims, Principles and Goals of Scouting.
All Scouts adopt a code of living known as the Scout Law.
New members are always welcome at Banksia Scout Group.
