The Scouting Family

New Zealand Scouts are just some of the 30 million young people in 216 countries and territories who join in the fun of Scouting every week. Members have adventurous experiences that last a lifetime.

Our Mission

The mission of Scouting is to contribute to the education of young people, through a value system based on the Scout Promise, to help build a better world where people are self-fulfilled as individuals and play a constructive role in society.

Our Ethos

We believe that through adventure we challenge individuals so that they learn and experience new things that enrich their lives.

The Scout Promise

“On my honour, I promise to do my best,
To develop my spiritual beliefs,
To contribute to my community, country and world,

And to live by the Scout Law”

Te Kī Taurangi Scout
“E mana ai taku kī taurangi, kia pukumahi te mahi,
Kia tau te whakapono-ā-wairua,
Kia ihu oneone ki te hapori, ki te whenua tupu, ki te ao
Kia manaakitia tangata kē atu,
Kia ū ki tā te ture i kī mai ai.”
