The purpose of scouting is to contribute to the education of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual potentials as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities.

The Scout Method – learning by doing, learning in small groups, learning in the outdoors and learning through fun.

The Scout Program Delivers – confidence and self-esteem, but listening to others. Independence, but helping others. Leadership and teamwork. Social cohesion, all are welcome, regardless of faith, race, gender or orientation. Resilience, camping rough, working and sharing, coping with adversity. Positive mental health.

A student at our school Tahlia C from the 1st Carrum Downs Cub Pack, has earned the Grey Wolf, this is a milestone in a youth member’s scouting journey. Achieving this award involves lots of outdoor adventure including camping and hiking, as well as earning the Gold Boomerang and a range of Achievement Badges. Our youth members are well supported by their volunteer Leaders, their families, and often their teachers, but ultimately the decision to strive to be among the few who reach this level in scouting is a personal choice, and often an indicator of future success.

Congratulations Tahlia on your scouting award, we wish you luck for the next award.
