BLIAQ Scouts

Buddha's Light Scout Group QLD was established in 2018 and is the first Buddhist Scout group to be established in QLD. Its emphasis is on incorporating the Buddhist values into the Scout method for children and youth aged 5-18 years old.


Its vision is for Scouts to learn and develop in a happy and family-orientated environment with Buddhist values and ethics, and to cultivate the practice of the Three Acts of Goodness to "do good deeds, say good words and think good thoughts".


The purpose of Scouting is to contribute to the education of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual potential as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities.
