Joey Scouts are our youngest members.
Joey Scouts commence at 5 years of age and transition to the Cub Scout Unit after turning 8 and before turning 9.
For our youngest members, the Joey Scout program nurtures a deeper understanding of the world around them, with a growing awareness of their surroundings and nature, by getting out and about in the community.
Cub Scouts is for boys and girls starting from 8 years of age who transition to the Scout Unit after turning 11 and before turning 12. They generally meet once a week as well as going on some super cool weekend activities.
There are fun camps for Cub Scouts which could have interesting themes like ‘Space Odyssey’ or ‘Pirates on the High Seas’. With some experience, you can even join a 5-day ‘Cuboree’ with hundreds of other excited Cub Scouts at Gilwell Park, near Gembrook.
Scouts is for youth, aged from 11 years, to enjoy learning life skills and Scouting values in a safe, fun and youth-driven environment.
Scouts transition to the Venturer Scout Unit before turning 15.
As members work their way through the higher age groups on the Scouting pathway, they’re gradually given more responsibility for themselves and others.
As a Venturer Scout, you could find yourself camping above the snow line, exploring underwater reefs, riding the wind in a high-performance land yacht, earning your pilot's licence, investigating a career in astro-physics, editing your own film, making a sculpture or climbing a sheer rock face.
Venturer Scouts have the courage and confidence to say, try and do. You are given opportunities to experience the excitement of living and the training to develop into a capable, self-reliant individual.
The action and adventure a Venturer Scout experiences doesn't just develop your physical skills. It also prepares you to meet challenges, to deal with new situations, and to gain independence. You work alongside adults, rather than being told what to do by them, and you draw on their experiences and contacts to get the best out of your program that you design to suit your needs. You belong to a group of young people your own age, about 15 of you in a Unit. You run your own affairs through a Unit Council. You speak out for your own viewpoint and share the decisions, help make the plans and follow them through.
