A GREAT EXPERIENCE FOR YOU AND YOUR KIDS!

Any Ages

If you were a Cub Scout, a Scout, Brownie or Girl Guide, you'll remember the fun of weekends camping in the Hills, ghost stories around the fireside, and the pride of taking home a new achievement badge for Mum to sew on. Perhaps you can still remember how to tie a sheepshank knot, or how to make damper. And you've never forgotten the words of the promise…something about “doing my best and helping other people” wasn't if?

You'll probably want your kids to have the same fun and learn the same skills. Even if it's all new to you, you'll find Scouting is still great fun for you and your kids.

Scouting isn't just somewhere else to drop the kids. It's a chance to grow up with them and that's a great experience for both of you.

Great for Parents

You'll know your kids are in good hands. Trained adults are there to lead and advise them. Through Scouting they'll have access to a wide range of opportunities and experiences. They'll learn. They'll have fun. They'll develop character.

They'll also become part of a world-wide organization with a proven program of activities designed to help the cope with the world as responsible and valuable citizens.

Great Value

For all you and your kids will get out of Scouting, the cost is very small. Each child pays a yearly or term membership fee and from time to time there may be an extra charge to cover special events, such as a camp, pack holiday, or Jamboree. Uniforms are required and can be purchased at the Scout Outdoor Centre.

Great Ways to Help

Parents can help by:

  • Showing your interest and encouragement.
  • Providing transport.
  • Helping to raise money.
  • Giving your time to participate with your kids.

 

Great for Kids

Scouting is a great way for kids to have fun. It's also a great way to help them grow into capable, self-reliant individuals. Scouting helps kids to:

LEARN through fun and adventure
DEVELOP new skills and interests
SHARE with friends their own age
HELP others
SERVE the community
WORK together
ENJOY outdoor life
GAIN confidence
ACCEPT responsibility
SHOW resourcefulness
THINK for themselves

Remember, as great as they are, the Leaders can't do it all on their own!

So don't just let your child have all the fun... get involved with your child's Scouting now!
