Everyone is welcome to join Guiding and Scouting! Anyone who is 7 years of age or older is free to join and there is no maximum age limit. The essence of Guiding and Scouting is engaging in a diverse assortment of activities together with others and interacting with a wide variety of people. Where you come from is not important. All you need is a willingness to get involved.

All children from the age of 7, youngsters or adults can become Guides or Scouts! That’s really something!
If you want to join us, contact your local district. You can find the district map here.
