About Our Scouts
Our Scouts Leaders are:
Scout meetings are each Tuesday during the school term from 7pm to 9pm at the Scout hall or elsewhere as stated on the program. We also have combined nights with cubs or other troops, mystery nights and weekend camps.
Our 2017 programs can be found on our Facebook page Pakenham Scout Group. This is a guide to our year however changes will be made throughout the year to allow for other events. Some details are also not finalized until a week or two before the event. Emails will be sent home regarding every major activity or camp each term.
“Action Plus” is the best way to describe the life of a Scout
Scouts is the age group that started it all when Baden-Powell first began the scouts movement. Scouts is for youth aged 11 to 14.
At Scouts you’ll become a member of a Scout Patrol and your Patrol will work with other Patrols to form the Pakenham Scout Troop. Currently we have Owl, Dingo, Platypus, Frill Neck Lizards and Panther Patrols. Together you’ll make important decisions, set critical goals, and depend on each other to succeed. And when you do succeed, you can earn achievement badges!
In many ways, the scouts section is where children develop their skills and as they become young adults, also learn how to become leaders and to initiate and be responsible for their own development and learning.
Scout meetings consist of team-building activities, playing games, developing specialised skills and knowledge, and planning for weekend adventures and campouts. At meetings Troop members share stories and experiences of their recent adventures and offer advice to one another. Scout Leaders teach safety lessons on how to use equipment correctly and inspire their Scouts to be the best individuals and team players that they can be.
