We welcome you and your family to our Group and to the worldwide fellowship of scouting.

We are part of the largest youth organisation in the world.  There are 47 million scouts worldwide. We currently offer 5 sections:

• Joey Scouts (6 to 7 yrs). Due to low numbers our Joeys are currently meeting with 1st Mornington Scouts on Wednesday nights 5.00 - 6.00 PM.

• Cub Scouts (8 to 10 yrs) Thursdays 6.30pm - 8.00 during school term.

• Scouts (10 to 14 yrs) Wednesdays 7pm - 9pm during school term.

• Venturers (14 to 18 yrs) Tuesdays 7pm - 9pm during school term.

We currently have waiting lists in our Cub and Scout Sections. Youth members are welcome to join our wait list.

Adult leaders receive free training (to Certificate standard with Scouts Australia Institute of Training), get discounted membership for their family & join a great social circle of talented leaders & helpers. Our current team of leaders & helpers includes tradesmen, small business owners, uniformed service members, an engineer, medical professionals, marine biologists, a swim teacher and IT professionals.

As well as gaining formal qualifications your Scouts Victoria training can aid you in the workplace.

Where?

Our hall, called the SSS Seafire, is on the beach at Scouts Beach, next to Mothers beach, Mornington. It is the best beach box in the world! It is available for use by all members! And it  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.

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, have provided references & have undergone a CrimCheck.  They are there to make sure your child enjoys a safe, but exciting scouting experience.   Parent 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.
