For children and young people Scouting is about having fun, new adventures and experience and making friends. And that is the magic of Scouting.
What Scouting is really about is helping young people to flourish; to grow in all facets of development and become better people and citizens in our community.

UNESCO recognises Scouting as non-formal education. Our structured program through progressive age groups provides all-round personal development for children and young people through six separate areas of personal growth. To learn more, start by reading Developing Young People.
