Havelock North Scout Group

Who We Are

Welcome from Havelock North Scout Group.  We are part of the worldwide Scouting movement and are in the Waipu Zone of Scouts New Zealand.  Havelock North Scout Group operates from the Scout Hall located at 24 Napier Road, Havelock North.  We meet every week during term time and welcome young people between the ages of 5 and 26 and are open to all genders, ethnicities and religions.

Scouts Mission

The mission of Scouting is to contribute to the education of young people through a value system based on the Scout promise and law to help build a better world where people are self-fulfilled as individuals and play a constructive role in society. 

We believe that through adventure we challenge individuals so that they learn and experience new things that enrich their lives.

Havelock North Scouts Sections

Our Scout Group comprises four youth sections of boys and girls based on their age.  The sections meet during school term time.  To achieve the Scouting mission Havelock North Scouts offers a range of exciting and challenging activities, including: camping, hiking, swimming, kayaking and more.  We also contribute to the community through conservation and charitable activities.  The youth learn cooking, first aid, bush craft, survival, arts and craft, construction and other skills.

Young people can join Havelock North Scouts at any time.  There is no requirement for previous attendance.  Start at Keas level or at Venturers, or anywhere in between.


Ages 5 - 8.  Keas meet every Thursday night 5.30pm - 6.30pm.  Activities are held in the Scout Hall as well as outdoors as much a possible with learnings and challenges on the way.  As they get through Keas they are on a journey to the next level - Cubs 


Ages 8 - 11.  Cubs meet every Monday night 6.00pm - 7.30pm.  Activities take place at the Scout Hall and outdoors as well as the occasional overnight camp.  Activities involve working in teams, making friends and learning new skills. 


Ages 11 - 14.  Scouts meet every Tuesday night 7.00pm - 9.00pm.  Scouts participate in a wide range of activities and camps, including overnight tramps, camping and Weka Point, constructing and building rafts, grass sledding, sailing, bike rides and safety.


Years 14 - 18.  Venturers meet every Thursday night 7.00 - 9.00pm.  Venturers is all about self-driven success, giving everything a go, and having fun. From cooking, debating and movie nights to 4-day expeditions in the outdoors, white water rafting and skydiving, Venturers are limited only by their imagination and daring! To achieve the Queen Scout award they cover camping, tramping, water & emergency skills, community service and environmental awareness projects at a more advance level than Scouts. Venturers create and run their own programmes.
