The Boys' Brigade Australia has been successfully operating programs for young people for over 130 years.
The Boys Brigade Australia in New South Wales is part of an international organisation run in 60 countries around the world with over 500,000 boys. Boys Brigade provides opportunities for young people to link up with others around Australia and Overseas with National camps held every 3 years and participation in international games.
Many of our activities are high energy, fun, outdoor and challenging to help each person to reach their potential through the use of a balanced program – Physical, Spiritual, Educational and Social activities.
Every company is different and has its own “flavour” dependent on the interest of its officers and the area it is in and wears either a contemporary or formal uniform.
We also know that the cost to parents in sending their child to brigades is an important consideration given the many pressures on family budgets. Our program is significantly cheaper consistently than many other activities that can be undertaken and the variety is greater.
