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.

Rover Scouts

Adult Scout Leaders

Rover Scouts is for males and females aged 18 to their 26th Birthday who love socialising, challenging themselves, and seizing once-in-a-lifetime opportunities!

 

Life as a Rover Scout

Life after school can be isolating for most young adults, but not for Rover Scouts! Rover Scouts are a group of mates who believe in experiencing life to its fullest and seizing opportunities. Joining a Rover Scout Crew could be one of the most important decisions in your life. It offers opportunities to make new friends, have fun, experience once-ina- life-time adventures, and have unforgettable social experiences while you work with your fellow Rover Scouts to develop your leadership and organisational skills. 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. As a Rover Scout, be prepared to expect the unexpected.

 

Rover Scout Meetings

Rover Scouts are organised into Crews which vary in size from a handful of members to twenty or more. Most Crews meet weekly to enjoy social activities, fun, adventure, and once-in-a-life-time experiences. Rover Scouts are independent and resourceful so every Crew tailors its own activities to the requirements of its members. Each Crew is also responsible for setting its own entry requirements and program goals. A true Rover Scout strives to serve the community, make life-long friends, and seize every available opportunity.
