About Scouting

There are lots of organisations in Malta that offers activities for young people, so why choose Scouts? Scouts' age-related progressive program is unique - no other organisation offers such a diverse variety of activities and experiences across such a broad age-range. Children and young adults aged from 5 to 26 can join at any stage of Scouting and participate in a program that encourages them to grow through adventure by experiencing new challenges, making new friends, building confidence, taking responsibility for themselves, and being provided with opportunities to explore their own abilities and interests. Perhaps the most important thing, however, is that Scouts have fun!

Scouting encourages young people to become well-rounded young adults who believe in their current abilities and future potential, who are well-equipped to face life's challenges, who are strong leaders as well as effective team players, and who can make a constructive contribution to the community in which they live.

The Scout program is based on the wisdom of over a century of Scouting experience from around the world, combined with a dynamic and contemporary approach which ensures that the program remains engaging and relevant to today's youth, their families, and the wider community. Emphasising peace, education and understanding, Scouting transcends all cultural, religious, racial, political, age and gender barriers. The Scout Association of Malta also welcomes membership enquiries from those with intellectual or physical disabilities.
