Organisations for kids and adults

Arrowtown Scouts

The Arrowtown Scout Group runs Keas, Cubs, Scouts and Venturers for kids from 6 to 17 years old.

Scouting teaches kids about their community, makes the most of our incredible environment, helps with their personal development, and encourages them to have new experiences to help them grow… and it’s really fun!
