Other Activities


Any activity which is not listed as members being banned from participating in is acceptable as a Scouting activity. If the activity is not listed and has no specific rules then it would be managed through the rules for other activities (POR 9.77) which is based on identifying risks and factors to reduce or manage these risks.

How to run/provide other activities

There are 2 ways of running Other Activities in Scouting. These are:

  1. Scout-led activity - running other activities yourself or using someone else in Scouting

  2. Externally-led activity - running other activities using an external provider
