As a result of enquires received SCOUTS New Zealand would like to advise our 21,000 active members, their families and all other persons associated with SCOUTS New Zealand, that the website scout.co.nz is not connected, associated, nor authorised in any way with our positive youth empowerment organisation. We wish to distance ourselves and our strong, established brand from that site; any perceived links between SCOUTS New Zealand and it are not accurate and should not be pursued. We are working to ensure that SCOUTS New Zealand and our members are not negatively affected or impacted by that site. We remind our members of our values and ask that no public comments be made – we are confident the situation is in hand and will keep you updated as required. Thank you.
