Founded as the 1st Kelburn 1909 Scout Group just a year after Scouting for Boys was written, the Kelburn Scout Group has been serving the community of Kelburn for over 110 years.

The Kelburn Scout Group is one of 350 scout groups across the country. Every week more than 14,000 young people take part in non-formal, values based education to help build their social, physical and mental, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual well being. This is made possible by the hard work of our 5,000 adult leaders across the country who donate over 1 millions hours of youth development to make New Zealand a better place.

Those to have come through the ranks of 1st Kelburn 1909 Scout Group include former Governor-General Sir Denis Blundell, former cabinet minister Trevor Young, actor Karl Urban and Flight of the Conchord’s Bret McKenzie and his brother Justin.

We meet out Lawson Scout Hall in the Wellington Botanic Gardens weekly during the school term.
