WHERE ARE WE ?

Our hall, called the SSS SEAFIRE, is on the beachfront at Scouts beach, next to Mothers beach, Mornington. This gives us fantastic access to a small, safe harbour on Port Phillip Bay.

Parking is available on Schnapper Point Drive. Take the first walkway down to the beach.

WHAT ARE THE AIMS OF SCOUTING ?

“ to encourage the physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual development of young people so that they can take a constructive place in society as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities”

Each week each section meets for activities. There are often camps and other weekend activities.

A LEARNING EXPERIENCE

Achievement is measured through earning proficiency badges.

The major badge milestones that can be achieved as your child progresses through the movement include the Grey Wolf Award for Cub Scouts, the Australian Scout Medallion for Scouts and the Queens Scout Award for Venturers.

OUR LEADERS

All our leaders and any others in regular contact with children have been trained by Scouts Australia and have the State Government ‘Working with Children’ clearance.  They are there to make sure your child enjoys a safe, but exciting scouting experience.   Parents involvement is encouraged & welcome. Children whose parents are involved tend to have a more valuable experience of scouting. Every part of Scouting is run by volunteers. Generally, the leaders are, or have been, parents of children in Scouting. None of our leaders or committee members are paid or receive any financial benefit.
