Former Scouts

There are many ways to continue your involvement in Scouting when your days in uniform have finished.

Join the Australian Queen’s Scout Association

The Australian Queen's Scout Association (AQSA) is a fellowship of men and women who have been awarded the Queen's Scout Badge or its predecessor, the King's Scout Badge.

Only those who have been presented with a Queen's Scout or King's Scout Award and who are in good standing with The Scout Association of Australia may hold membership.

Email for more information on how to join.

Support Scouting through the Lord Baden-Powell Society

Since 1984, Members of the Lord Baden-Powell Society have helped young Australians experience the benefits and joy of Scouting through private financial support.

Many prominent Australian citizens acknowledge the role of Scouting in developing personal characteristics that can’t be learned anywhere else. By becoming a Member of the Lord Baden-Powell Society, you’ll help Scouts Australia continue its valuable programs which encourage young people to develop qualities such as self-reliance, discipline, high moral values, leadership, team building, and respect for each other and the environment.
