Scouting origins date back to the start of the Twentieth Century. They have survived the two World Wars, sweeping social events and the challenges of other influences, to become stronger than ever. It does this by placing the needs of young people first — in a program that can adapt to change.
When we say adventure, were 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.

Pakenham Scout Group provides Pakenham and Cardinia youth aged 6 to 25 with opportunities to grow through adventure!
