KEAS : Meet at the Morrinsville Scout Den (Moorhouse St) Tuesdays 4.00pm - 5.00pm
This is for boys and girls in Year 1-3.  Keas interact with nature and learn to share through co-operation and team-work.  They engage in active and quiet games, stories, creative craft, play-acting and singing.
Keas also participate in a fun award scheme which allows KEAS to progress through the various levels and complete personal interest badges.

CUBS : Meet at the Morrinsville Scout Den (Moorhouse St) Mondays 6.00pm-7.30pm
This is for boys and girls in Year 3-6.  There are plenty of indoor and outdoor adventures to go on - such as camping, outdoor cooking, bushwalking, explorations and other challenges.  CUBS have their own award scheme to work through and personal challenge badges to obtain.

SCOUTS : Meet at the Morrinsville Scout Den (Moorhouse St) Wednesdays 7.00pm-8.30pm
This is for boys and girls in Year 6-10.  Action packed activities form the core part of being a SCOUT, encouraging young people to make their own decisions and to explore the world around them.  SCOUTS work towards their Bronze, Silver and Gold Scout awards with the ultimate achievement being a CHIEF SCOUT.  They also have the opportunity to attend 'National Schools' in topics such as aviation, canoeing, photography and caving and attend PioPio Adventure Camp.

VENTURERS : Meet on Sundays 7pm - 8.30pm usually at the Morrinsville Scout Den but that depends on the programme
This is for young people in Years 10-13.  They form their own programme with the emphasis being the same theme as the programmes for KEAS, CUBS and SCOUTS.  The programme developes their self confidence through to leadership courses and modules about community awareness to prepare them for their next stage of life as they prepare for life after school.  A progressive award scheme culminates with the achievement of the prestigeous QUEEN SCOUT AWARD.  This is SCOUTS New Zealand highest youth award and is presented by the Governor-General.  The Morrinsville Venturer Unit also offers The Duke of Edinburgh's Hillary Award - an achievement that is recognised worldwide.

LEADERS :
Joining our team of leaders is an effective and rewarding way of contributing to the local community and creating opportunities for our young people that they might not always have.  Leaders also learn and challenge themselves through the valuable training programme.  This quality learning environment allows LEADERS to then transfer those skills to their section and into their own work place.  

We are looking to recruit more leaders as our sections are increasing in numbers.
