Lots of the activities we do in scouts are open to other members of the family, such as walks, camps, and weekend outings. As well as this, scouts only happens thanks to the commitment and dedication of lots of volunteers. The more people that chip in and help, the better!
Parents are asked to chip in in various ways depending on what is possible.
Parents can help by:
- Showing interest and encouragement
- Providing transport
- Helping to fundraise for the Group
- Volunteering for duties such as Scout Hall set up or clean up
- Joining the Group Committee and/or assisting with administration
- Helping with DIY jobs or gardening at the Scout Hall
- Organising a Group excursion to your workplace
- Offering your unique talents and skills for a Group theme night
Don’t be afraid to offer your practical support, or to ask the Leaders at your Group how you can contribute.
Please introduce yourself to the leaders and offer assistance where you can. It will be much appreciated.
As one of the largest Scout Groups in the state we are always on the lookout for new leaders to join our dedicated team.
There are various levels of leadership depending on how much time you can commit. All those who help out regularly are asked to become adult members of the scouting movement and to complete a police check (at no cost to you.) You will also need to have a WWVP (Working With Vulnerable People) card. This must be presented to the group for recording.
You may be a parent, ex-scout, or someone looking for a way to contribute to your community… if you have commitment and a desire to help kids grow, then we’d like to talk some more! Phone our Group Leader Brian on 0418 120 661.
