We are a local Scout Group in Chelsea. We are the only remaining Air Scout Group in Victoria and one of three in Australia. We do all the things and activities that all Scout Groups do, but we focus our activities toward all things Aviation and Air!
Scouting is a worldwide movement that has shaped the development of youth and adults for 100 years. Scouts are in every part of our community, and Scouts is the biggest and most successful youth organisation in Australia. More than 20,000 boys, girls, and adults in Victoria from wide cultural or religious background including those with an intellectual or physical disability enjoy an unlimited range of activities.
Scouting offers a diverse range of activities for boys, girls & adults across a wide age range:
- Joey Scouts: ages 6-7
- Cub Scouts: ages 8-10
- Scouts: ages 11-14
- Venturer Scouts: ages14-17
- Rover Scouts: ages 18-25
- Leaders: ages 18+
- Fellowship: ages 26+
The aim of Scouting is to encourage the physical, intellectual, emotional, social, and spiritual development of young people so they may play a constructive role in society as responsible citizens and as members of their local and international communities. This aim is achieved through a strong and active program that inspires young people to do their best and to always be prepared.

Scouting is Challenging!
Scouts challenge their minds as well as their bodies. Not everyone looks for the outdoor buzz all the time, so Scouts have challenging activities linked with the internet and amateur radio, performance arts such as singing, dancing, and acting and awards linked to citizenship, community service and personal spiritual development.
Scouting is Commitment!
Scouting makes a direct and positive impact on the community by teaching positive values and leadership skills to youth. Every year, Scouts and their leaders contribute thousands of volunteer hours to their local communities. Sharing time with the aged in the local community, helping with Clean Up Australia Day, Harmony Day and planting trees to help with the Murray Darling River Rescue are just a few examples of the commitment Scouts make to their
