Introduction to Scouting SeminarWelcome
The AimThe aim of the Scout Association of Australia is to encourage the physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual development of young people so that they may take a constructive place in society as responsible citizens, and as members of their local, national and international communities.
The PrinciplesThe Principles of Scouting as identified by the founder, Lord Baden-Powell, are that Scouts should serve God, act in consideration of the needs of others, and develop and use their abilities to the betterment of themselves, their families, and the community in which they live.
The PrinciplesThe three Principles are represented by a code of conduct which characterises all members of the Movement, and are referred to as Duty to God, Duty to Others and Duty to Self.
