When you become a Scout you're accepting a challenge to plunge into action. You could find yourself exploring a mountain wilderness, soaring on warm air currents high above the earth at the controls of a glider plane, helping in emergency rescues, operating a radio station, photographing wild animals, sending coded messages, searching for gold, canoeing down a swift river, camping out bush, recording your own songs or sailing across the ocean with the salt spray in your face.
Scouting gives you the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of exciting activities. It also gives you the greatest opportunity of all - the opportunity to develop real friendships by sharing the experiences of learning, growing and exploring the world with others.
Action you create
Scouts aren't told what to do by adults. Your Scout Leaders are there to help you and give you direction but you are involved in planning your activities and making decisions with the other members of your Scout Troop.
Action to lead
As you learn and gain experience you'll discover not only more about the world around you and the adventures you can have, but more about working together and becoming a leader too. Under the guidance of your Scout Leader you can move up through the ranks to accept the challenge and adventures of leadership.
Action in a Patrol
As a Scout you will become a member of a Scout Patrol. You work as a team, helping each other, depending on each other and each having a say in decision making. Your Patrol will have from four to eight members, and be led by a Patrol Leader and Assistant Patrol Leader. The Patrol Leader organises your meetings and takes part in Troop Council meetings with other Patrol Leaders.
Action in a Unit
Several Scout Patrols make up a Scout Unit. The Unit usually meets in a Scout Hall and is guided by a Scout Leader. Broad program planning, Unit management and routine business is handled by the Unit Council, which is made up of all Patrol Leaders and the Scout Leader.
