Scouts is for boys and girls aged 11-15. Our Troop meets on Thursday evenings from 7:00 – 9:00pm.
It’s a chance for young people to have fun in the outdoors hiking, camping, boating! Without realizing the scouts also build resilience and learn life skills by planning and doing these activities under adult supervision.

Check out the current & past term programmes to see what our Troop has been doing:
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 skills. Scouts 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 – next AJ2022 will be held in Victoria, in early January 2022. We also regularly attend the Sydney North Region (SNR) ScoutHike, State Rally, Sirius Cup Regatta as well as our own Turrumburra 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.
