2016 Term 1
In Scouts, youth members have lots of opportunity for personal growth through challenging, interesting activities with fun, friendship and games. Scouts enjoy a wide range of outdoor and indoor tasks and working in small groups, called Patrols, develop leadership and a sense of achievement. Scouting aims to build on hobbies, interests and skillsScouts are exposed to a huge range of activities based on adventure and personal interests, such as abseiling, caving, camping, cooking, hiking, orienteering, water/boating activities, bush survival skills, tying and using knots – including learning how to do all adventurous activities safely! There’s also time to watch the sun rise or set, learn or improve a skill such as photography, performance arts, operating amateur radio – just to name a few.
Our Troop is also involved in District, Regional, State & National Activities such as the Australian Jamboree held every 3 years. We also regularly attend the Sydney North Region ScoutHike, State Rally, Sirius Cup Regatta as well as our own Moocooboolah District camps, wide games and other joint activities. Scouts learn from their older peers in their Patrols but also have the opportunity to attend a Leadership Course designed to provide suitable leadership skills, based on understanding the Patrol System and the Scout Award Scheme, how to be an effective leader, problem solving and task management, citizenship, and planning/programming.
