The South Coast and Tablelands Scouting Region stretches from Helensburgh in the North to the Victorian Border in the South, and incorporates areas West to Goulburn, Queanbeyan and Jindabyne.

When we say ‘adventure’, we’re not just talking about the awesome range of outdoor activities that Scouts offers! In fact, ‘adventure’ can mean any exciting, novel or unusual experience, and Scouts offers such a huge range of opportunities that there’s always something new to try. And you can join at any age from 6 upwards!

Scouts are separated into age-based Sections – Joey Scouts (6-8), Cub Scouts (7.5-11), Scouts (10.5-15), Venturer Scouts (14.5-18) and Rover Scouts (18-25), with each Section taking more responsibility for their own activities as they progress. All Sections share a steady diet of self-respect, confidence, leadership, teamwork, creativity, environmental awareness and community involvement, and there are plenty of events and activities in which everyone can get involved together.

Scouts couldn’t provide such amazing experiences for young people without a huge group of dedicated and enthusiastic adult volunteers. If you’re aged 18 or over, why not contact your local Group and find out how you can rediscover adventure too? It doesn’t matter if you’ve never been a Scout… we’ll teach you everything you need to know!

On the 1st of August, we celebrate World Scout Day and Scout Scarf Day!

World Scout Day is an opportunity for past, present and supporters of Scouts to wear their Scout scarf in celebration and recognition of their involvement in the largest youth organisation in the world.

We also celebrate outstanding adult volunteers, who have made an incredible contribution to Scouting through their generous gift of volunteering.

The remarkable effort and contribution of these individuals has changed lives and made a positive difference to our local communities, and the emerging leaders of the future.

Congratulations to all the recipients for 2021, and we share our thanks for your continued commitment to Scouting!

SC&T Region Scouts

This week is NAIDOC Week. NAIDOC Week is a time to reflect and celebrate the history, culture, and achievements of First Nation Peoples, recognising our Traditional Custodians of the land. This year's theme – ‘Heal Country!’ – calls for all of us to continue to seek greater protections for lands, waters, sacred sites, and cultural heritage. It is also a time for us to look inward and to see the changes that need to be made so that we can ‘Heal Country!’.

NAIDOC week also brings to the forefront of our mind what we can do this week but also all year round.
We acknowledge we need to do more to listen and better support measures to recognise, protect and maintain all aspects of culture and heritage.

Scouts provide us and many others with the opportunity to experience our world in exciting ways and the natural beauty of our country can be the backdrop to our hikes, camps, and activities. We play a key role in the process of healing as an organisation, as community members, and as individuals.

We truly believe that Scouts can add value to build a more unified country and adds value to the experience of our members. Scouts should be given the opportunity to understand, embrace and engage in discussions, activities, and experiences around culture.

Let’s walk this path of curiosity, interest, and respect together. Already, we know and have heard what amazing things individuals and groups are already doing to include culture into what we do best.

Our Region started a council in October 2020 with interested and skilled leaders to support our knowledge and guidance.
One resource, we have started with is the Indigenous Nations within South Coast and Tablelands Region. This resource shows the breadth of our districts/region, however, establishes the Nations as foundational. Australia is made up of many different and district groups, each with their own culture, customs, language, and law.
This map serves as a visual reminder of the richness and diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australia. Please use it to inform what Nation your hall is on and/or where your activity is being held and spark your curiosity.
