Welcome to, the online home of
the Mawson Lakes Scout Troop -- ZULUTroop; Cub Pack -- ZULUPack; and Joey Mob -- ZULUMob

Scouting offers young people stuff they cannot get at School or with any sporting club: a sense of Adventure and the chance to stretch themselves mentally as well as physically in a positive self-disciplined environment.
100 years ago, Lord Baden Powell (the founder of the World Scouting Movement) had a vision that he delivered on Brownsea Island. Following in the spirit of that vision, ZULUTroop aims to deliver a high adventure, action based program in a highly focused way.
ZULUTroop is about being out in the field; about working in Scout Patrols and getting dirty, muddy and sweaty while you do it; it is about a sense of mateship that comes from high adventure and going a bit further and a bit harder than you thought you could.
The Scouting youth gain self-confidence through doing; through individual and group learning; through participating in physical activities; participating in teams; and through facing and conquering some of their fears.
As they progress through Scouts the youth gain teaming skills and can also gain leadership skills.
Scouting is also about service and respect: service to your patrol; to your troop; and to your community; and respect for the world we live in; the wonders of the universe; the environment; the people around us; and respect for oneself.
If our program delivers all these things then ZULUTroop has been successful.
