Scouting Sections are organised by age.
Where do you belong?
(6 - 8 yrs)
Joey Scouts are boys and girls aged 6 to 8 years of age who likes to have fun while caring and sharing with each other and our environment.
A Joey Scout mob consists of all the children in this age group. Joey Scouts wear a uniform, like all other Scouts, as well as a scarf and a woggle.
Joey Scout meetings are a fast moving time spent in having fun through games, art, craft, nature, investigation, singing, cooking, and story-telling. Outings and family days are held throughout the year and these may be to a bush, a park or places of interest to the Joey Scouts. During the year we have sleep-overs and mob holidays. Sleep-overs are when we stay at the den overnight and mob holidays are at approved accommodation for the week.
(8 - 11 yrs)
Cub Scouts are 8 to 11 year old boys and girls, and wear a uniform including a Scout scarf and woggle.
In the summer we take the opportunity to get outside and in the winter we focus on the indoors. We have at least one Pack Holiday plus a sleepout per year. Outings to the bush and places of interest are held in addition to meeting nights.
Cub Scouts earn Boomerang Badges simply by turning up on Cub Scout nights, Pack Holidays and whatever else we do plus work done at home. The more the children turn up the faster the badges will be earned.
(11 - 14 yrs)
A Scout is a boy or girl aged between 11 and 14 years.
Scouting is about learning new skills while having a lot of fun hiking, camping, canoeing, sailing, skiing, other water activities and much much more! Scouting will give your son/daughter a unique responsibility (to him/herself and others) not only to be trustworthy, but honest and loyal as well.
A Scout is part of a Patrol, which is a group of 6-8 other young people. The patrol is run by Patrol Leader (PL) who is appointed by the rest of the Patrol. S/he is assisted by an Assistant Patrol Leader (APL) who is appointed by the Patrol Leader. The PL will guide & teach the other Scouts through the activities and award scheme (badges). The PL, with guidance from the Adult Scout Leader, run the Scout Troop - this is called the Patrol System.
(14 -18 yrs)
Venturer Scouts are males and females aged 14 to 18 years of age who never turn down a good challenge and love to push themselves to their limits. They may find themselves exploring the great Aussie bush, camping above the snowline, diving on coral reefs or earning their pilot’s licence
Venturers is however not all about the outdoors, as they are be involved in a well-designed program to develop confidence, independence and teamwork skills. Venturer Scouts meet on a regular basis and the Venturer Adult Leaders are only there as guides and mentors. It is up to the Venturer Scouts themselves to decide what and how to complete the activities provided in the Venturer Program.
(18 - 25 yrs)
Rover Scouts are young men and women aged 18 to 25 years of age. Prior experience in the Scouting movement is not required to become a Rover, neither is previous outdoor activities experience.
A Rover Crew has no set number of participants; they can range from a handful to more than 20.
Rover Scouts personalise their programs to suit their members and each Crew are fully independent and responsible for managing their own groups, projects and campsites. Rovering helps develop leadership abilities and an appreciation of the value of helping other people through service activities, both within Scouting and in the wider community. Challenging outdoor activities such as bushwalking, canoeing, sailing, caving, ski-touring, canyoning, four-wheel driving, rock-climbing, and scuba diving can all form part of a Rover Scout's calendar.
