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.

Scouts

Scouts

Scouts is for boys and girls aged 10½ to 14½ and is the most well known section of the Scouting Movement – Scouts is where the action is!

 

Life as a Scout

If you are passionate about action then you’re a Scout! Everyday will make your adrenaline rush when you participate in a range of action-packed activities. Whether you’re mastering the art of outdoor safety, participating in amateur radio shows and performing arts productions, or attending the ultimate Scouting adventure of a Jamboree, you’ll learn life-long skills that you can teach your friends.

 

At Scouts you’ll become a member of a Scout Patrol and you’re Patrol will work with other Patrols to form a larger Scout Troop. Together you’ll make important decisions, set critical goals, and depend on each other to succeed. And when you do succeed, you can earn achievement badges!

Scout Meetings

Sunnybank Scout Troop meet 7.00pm to 9.00pm on Wednesdays. Scout Troops, which are comprised of several Scout Patrols, usually meet every week to discuss their progress and work towards achieving their goals. Scout meetings consist of team-building activities, playing games, developing specialised skills and knowledge, and planning for weekend adventures and campouts. At meetings Troop members share stories and experiences of their recent adventures and offer advice to one another. Scout Leaders teach safety lessons on how to use equipment correctly and inspire their Scouts to be the best individuals and team players that they can be.
