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.

Leaders and Training.

Adult leaders receive free, comprehensive, training (to Certificate standard with Scouts Australia Institute of Training), get discounted membership for their family & join a great social circle of talented leaders & adult helpers. Past and present teams of leaders & helpers have included trainers, tradesmen, small business owners, uniformed service members, engineers, medical professionals, marine biologists, swim teachers and IT professionals.

All leaders and adult helpers 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.  Parent involvement is encouraged & welcome. Scouting is an all-volunteer organisation, none of our leaders or committee members are paid or receive any financial benefit.

As well as gaining formal qualifications, your Scouts Victoria training can aid you in the workplace. If you would like to try out as an Adult Leader for up to 12 months then please contact our Group Leader at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

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.

What are the aims of Scouting?

Scouting is an informal education program, designed 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, including adventurous training run by one of Scouts Victoria's many adventurous activities teams.

Activities you may enjoy during the year include:

• Hiking • Water Skiing • Camping • Rock-climbing • Sailing • Canoeing • Kayaking • Scuba diving

• Skiing • Performing arts • Abseiling • Flying light aircraft • Community Service

• Construction • Amateur Radio • Surfing • Environmental Activities • First aid

The Learning Experience

Scouts focus on 'learning by doing' and where possible the youth lead and adults support. Achievement is measured through an Award Scheme. 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.
