Welcome to Scouts Waikato

Waikato Zone is part of Scouts Aotearoa and supports delivery of the Scouting programme to youth members through the four Scout Groups in Hamilton city (Chartwell, Hillcrest, Kirikiriroa St Peters, and St Marys), as well as Groups in Cambridge, Pirongia, Putaruru, Taumarunui, Te Awamutu, and Te Kuiti.

The groups provide for one or more of the four youth sections – Keas (aged 5‑8), Cubs (8‑11), Scouts (11‑14), and Venturers (14‑18). Additionally we have our young adult section – Rovers (18‑26) based in Hamilton. Note that some of these youth sections are not available in all Groups.

Programmes are based in the outdoors as much as possible, are educational in nature, and are fun. Scouts Aotearoa embraces youth development through youth led programmes to allow individuals to grow in a safe environment. We welcome enquiry for youth to join one of the sections mentioned above.

Parent and adult volunteer help is also welcomed in a section leadership role or on a group committee. Training is provided. Scouts NZ is a volunteer organisation registered as a Charitable Trust under its own Act of Parliament.
