HOW do YOU do Scouting?

The Scout Method is how we do Scouting. This team are looking at what is happening at the moment in Australian Scouting, and considering whether this is still relevant in a changing Australian society. Around the world, the Scout Method varies a bit, but regularly it includes elements such as “learning by doing”, “the outdoors”, “the small group (or patrol) system”, “the Areas of Personal Growth”, “Promise & Law”, “the symbolic framework” and “young people supported by adults”. Sometimes it also includes key points such as “service”. In this topic, the team are looking at what is the best fit for Australian society, and how to support its use in our program. This includes looking at possible changes in parts of the Method, such as the symbolic framework.

Another great clip from the Scout Association of the United Kingdom!

Scouts is for everyone.

We totally agree. “Nature & Outdoors” is  part of the Scout Method. Get out there!

What does "Adventure" mean to you?

For those involved with Scouts Australia… What does “Adventure” mean to you? Click the link to share your thoughts.

Scouting has long been seen as an organisation focused on adventure.
The Adventurous Program Team of the Youth Program Review is researching and developing recommendations on how Scouting in Australia can be more adventurous not only through camps, outdoor activities and the award scheme, but also in our weekly programs. We want to find out how today’s young people define adventure, and how to apply adventure for all ages. We’re interested in finding out what gets in the way of an adventurous program and will recommend some changes to how we can get more youth members outdoors, re-engaged with the nature and stepping outside their comfort zone.

YPR Research Update!!

The YPR has commissioned research from some external companies to look in-depth at the needs of Australian society today and into the future, and the reasons people don’t remain in Scouting.
