Samford Scout Group was established in 1962 and is a dynamic Scout Group with members located in Samford and surrounding areas. It encompasses all the scouting sections, Joeys, Cubs, Scouts, Venturers and Rovers.
Samford Scout Group functions remarkably because of the integral membership of amazing Youth Members, entrusting and committed parents and families, our Samford area local community and dedicated and inspiring Leaders.
Adults and youths in the Samford area have benefited from their time in scouting and many of our future generations will also experience fun, challenge and adventure.

Scouting is over 100 years old. Founded by Lord Robert Baden-Powell of Gilwell in the UK and based around his ethics, morals and beliefs about the training of young people to become useful and responsible members of society. The Movement grew spontaneously and today ‘Scouts’ is the largest youth organisation in the world with over 28 Million worldwide and 60,000 members in Australia.
The Scouting method is based on three main factors, ‘Duty to God’, ‘Duty to Self’ and ‘Duty to Others’ and Scouts all over the world make a Promise to live by the Scout Law.
Scouting is voluntary, educational and non-political and is available for all young people.
Our programs are flexible with a wide range of activities adapted to meet the needs of young people in the community. Activities are based on the interests of the young people with an emphasis on useful skills and service to others. Many activities make use of the 'outdoors' theme and have a spirit of adventure and a challenge.
• Have a firm commitment to a code of living (the Scout Promise and the Scout Law)
• Work together in small groups under their own (youth) leadership with adult assistance
• Participate in progressive and stimulating programs of varied activities
• Have a sense of service to the community
• Learn by doing
Scouting in the modern world is as relevant as ever before and some believe that it has greater application in light of
society’s intolerances and reliance on digital forms of entertainment and recreation.
Famous Scouts include:
• Bear Grylls (Current Chief Scout, Adventurer and TV presenter)
• Bill Gates (Founder of Microsoft)
• David Beckham (Footballer)
• Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter actor)
• Dick Smith (Australian Entrepreneur)
• Neil Armstrong (First man on the moon)
