  1. Scouts

    Scouts is the section of Scouts Australia for boys and girls aged 10.5 - 15, although they can move up to the Venturer Scouts section from the age of 14.5. It follows the Cub Scout section. Scouts belong to patrols, headed by a youth leader as Patrol Leader, with an Assistant Patrol Leader. Patrols are grouped into a Scout Troop. The adult leaders or Scouters are a Scout Leader and one or more Assistant Scout Leaders. The troop is managed by the Troop Council, which consists of the Patrol Leaders advised by the Scout Leader. Scouts was the first section of the Scout Movement to be founded. Scouts make the Scout Promise which can be either of two forms:- On my honour I promise that I will do my best To do my duty to my God and To the Queen of Australia, To help other people, and To live by the Scout Law On my honour I promise that I will do my best To do my duty to my God, and To Australia To help other people, and To the live by the Scout Law The difference reflects the difference in Australian society between those who support the Monarchy and those who would prefer that the country became a Republic. Also note that the promise is made "To my god", highlighting the fact that Australian scouting is multi-national, and also "multi-religious".
