Epping Scouts is a vibrant Scouting group in Northern Sydney, NSW, Australia.
Formed on 3rd July 1915, the group is one of the oldest in Australia.
All 5 scouting sections are represented – starting at age 6 with Joeys and running through Cubs, Scouts, Venturers and finally the young adult group Rovers through to age 26.

Scouts participate in a wide range of exciting activities - including camps, hiking and even water sports at our own boatshed, and we all have great fun. We are very much a part of the local community.

New members of all ages are welcome. Visit our FAQ page to see more info.
