Welcome to Scouts Waikato

Waikato Zone is part of The Scout Association of New Zealand and delivers the Scouting programme to youth members through the five Scout Groups in Hamilton city (Chartwell, Hillcrest, Kirikiriroa (Nawton), St Marys, & St Peters), as well as Groups in Cambridge, Ohaupo, 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 the above sections are not available in all Groups.

Programmes are based in the outdoors as much as possible, are educational in nature, are fun, and help to develop leadership qualities in the youth. 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 will be provided.
