WELCOME

The Committee and Leaders would like to welcome you to the Sunnybank family of scouting. Your child will take away with them great memories of this time of their life and we hope that you will also.

This website has been designed to provide new families with information about the Sunnybank Scout Group and how we operate. If you would like to join the movement or have any further questions please contact us.

SUPPORTED BY

Scouting is a great way to challenge yourself, enjoy the outdoors and develop leadership skills whilst having fun.

Through Scouting you can create great friendships based on trust and respect. As a previous Sunnybank Scout, I am proud to support the Sunnybank Scout Group.

Adult Leaders

leaders

Leaders are the backbone of our movement. If you are looking for an adventure and the chance to help young people build a solid and positive foundation for their futures than you should become a Leader.

 

Why should I become a leader?

Leaders are crucial to the success of the Scouting Movement. As a Leader you will have access to a wide variety of resources, an opportunity to give back to the community, and the experience to educate Youth Members in the values and skills most important for being a good citizen. As a Leader you will achieve satisfaction from helping Youth Members set and achieve their own goals, while being there to help them when they fail and encourage them to continue. However, you will find that your proudest achievement will be building a strong bond of trust and friendship with the Youth Members.

 

What Can I Do as an Adult Leader?

As a Scouting Sectional Leader you’ll be responsible for altering your Sections Development Program to suit the particular needs of your group. You’ll be able to turn your ideas that evolve from your brainstorming sessions with other Leaders into reality and spend an exciting day trying them out in person before approving them. We encourage our Leaders to explore their creativity and work together while developing their programs and leading their youth. As a Leader you can gain formal leadership qualifications, develop programs, work with likeminded individuals, and teach young people life lessons through offering them the experiences of a lifetime.

 

What Section should I lead?

Joey Scout Leaders work with young people aged 6 to 8 and they ensure that weekly meetings and activities are designed to both entertain and improve the physical and mental abilities of their Joeys.

 

Cub Scout Leaders work with young people aged 7 to 11 and are responsible to help develop their Cub’s imaginations and foster their creative and mental abilities. Cub Leaders design their own activities to meet their weekly development program goals and help build confidence in their Cubs.

 

Scout Leaders work with young people aged 10 to 15 and foster independence and leadership in their Scouts while encouraging their teamwork abilities. Safe use of equipment and outdoors survival is at the heart of Scouts as adventure inspires their activities.

 

Venturer Leaders work with young adults aged 14 to 18 and are always available to their Venturer Units to offer advice, encouragement, and support. As a Venturer Leader you encourage independence and teamwork alike, while acting as a Scouting mentor. You’ll attend weekly meetings and supervise how your Venturers are turning their program goals into reality.

 

Rover Advisors work with adults aged 17 to 26 and are called Crew Advisors. Their responsibility is primarily to maintain close contact with the members of their Crew and to help and advise when needed. Crew Advisors act as friends and advisors rather than ‘leaders’.
