for new adventure
Welcome to the
Sunnybank Scout Group
The Sunnybank Scout Group has a long and proud history in the Sunnybank area. We were first established in 1958 in Dixon Street, Sunnybank. In 1982, with the support of the Brisbane City Council, we secured our new and current location on Beenleigh Rd. Our den is located in the relaxing setting of Les Atkinson Park allowing for members to utilise the park for activities.
In 1988 the Sunnybank Scout Den was extended to include an additional storage area and an abseil training tower at the rear of the den. The Sunnybank Den is a dynamic hall with section specific storage areas, meeting rooms and kitchen facilities.
The Sunnybank Scout Group organises several events during the year which provide a fantastic way for scout families to come together, meet other families and have a great deal of fun.
Our Aims and Objectives
At Sunnybank Scout Group, our aim is to encourage and promote the physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual development of young people. We encourage our members to take a constructive place in society as responsible citizens. Through the Scout Association, we achieve this aim by progressive self-education programs, which focus on initiative, teamwork, cooperation, community service and spirit. The development of leadership skills is a significant part of the Scout program, which ultimately helps today’s youth become tomorrow’s leaders.
All sections offer fun, age appropriate activities for boys and girls to prepare them for life. Youth members are given the opportunity to practise the skills they learn during their section nights.
