Scouting is a fantastic way for your child to learn many different skills that will help them greatly in life including resilience, problem solving, risk assessment etc along with improving their long term mental health as they get older. All of this is learnt in a safe environment youth of the same age while they are having fun and exploring the world around them while they help make their local community and the world a much better place.
Our Scout Group meets once a week during the school term. The cost for the weekly session is included in the Group term fee. There are additional activities and camps run by Scouts WA, District and our Group that youth can attend for an additional cost. It is encouraged that your child attends these extra activities as it is all part of the fantastic Scouting journey. The costs for additional activities are advised when we notify families of these events as they are dependent on the activity and length of the camp.
