Welcome to Kelburn Scout Group!

Located in Wellington’s Botanic gardens the Kelburn Scout Group was founded in 1909 and is one of the oldest scout groups in New Zealand.

We currently run three youth sections: Keas, Cubs and Scouts.

Scouts (ages 11 to 14) meets on Monday nights from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.

Cubs (ages 8 to 10) meets on Wednesday nights from 6:00pm to 7:30pm.

Keas (ages 5 to 7) meets on Thursday nights from 5:30pm to 6:30pm.

We have an enquiry from for parents and scouts interested in joining us.

Our scout den is a less than a minute’s walk from the iconic cable car station in the Wellington Botanic Gardens.


For young people 11 and up, we run one big adventure a term. This could be a camp or a tramp, but it will be outdoors usually over a weekend.


Our weekly programme is focused on fun activities that allow young people to work in teams.


We help all young people develop their leadership potential. Using the weekly programme, adventure, and community engagement we help young people hone their leadership skills.
