Fundamentals of Scouting

The Purpose of Scouting Scouting exists to actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.
The Values of Scouting As Scouts we are guided by these values:

We act with integrity; we are honest, trustworthy and loyal.
We have self-respect and respect for others.
We support others and take care of the world in which we live.
We explore our faiths, beliefs and attitudes.
We make a positive difference; we cooperate with others and make friends.
The Scout Method Scouting takes place when young people, in partnership with adults, work together based on the values of Scouting and:

  • enjoy what they are doing and have fun;
  • take part in activities indoors and outdoors;
  • learn by doing;
  • share in spiritual reflection;
  • take responsibility and make choices;
  • undertake new and challenging activities; and
  • make and live by their Promise.
