Latest updates on the RevIt project to revitalise SCOUTS South Africa.
SCOUTS South Africa
SCOUTS South Africa is a member of
the World Organization
of the Scout Movement.
Cubs, Scouts and Rovers
SCOUTS South Africa is made up of three branches:
- Cubs: boys and girls 7 to 10 years
- Scouts: boys and girls 11 to 17
- Rovers: young men and women from 18 to 30
Scouting is run in local Groups, which may be made
up of units for each branch, for example, a Cub Pack,
a Scout Troop and a Rover Crew. Groups are run
by volunteer adult leaders as well as a parents committee.
The volunteer leaders, known as Scouters, run a programme
of weekly meetings, camps and other activities.
Scout groups form local Districts which are coordinated
by a volunteer District Commissioner and assistants, and may
include a Local Association.
SCOUTS South Africa is divided into provinces.
These are run by a Provincial Commissioner and assistants,
a Provincial Manager, and a small number of paid staff.
The Chief Scout and Chief Scout's Commissioner are assisted
by several National Commissioners. The national headquarters
consists of a Chief Executive and a small number of paid staff.
The national headquarters and provincial
headquarters consist of a small number of paid staff.
