The SA Lones Scout Group, which began in 1910, offers Scouting to young people who want to participate in Scouting and who cannot get along to a regular Scout Group every week.
Lones Scouts are people from remote or isolated farms, small towns, islands or overseas. Or they might be at a boarding school, travelling around Australia, or suffering from a chronic illness or disability.
The Lones Scout Group operates like a distance learning group with:
- Weekly programs on audio tapes
- Overnight and holiday Scout Troop meetings and activities.
- Programs on "School of the Air
- Internet Scouting
As far as possible, activities are as similar to those of regular Troops or Sections.
