Annual registration is $60, plus the cost of Uniforms. There may be additional costs associated with camps and other outings, but we try to keep these to a bare minimum
A section for 15 – 17 year olds in which they become increasingly responsible for their own management and programming. Their motto is “Be Prepared”.
They are encouraged to help with the younger sections and may continue as Patrol Leaders. They complete their First Class and then work on the bushman’s Thong with the highest award being the St George Award, comparable in standard to the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award. Senior Explorers focus their attention on First Class Requirements
Boys and/or girls may be members between ages 11 – 15. Their motto is “Be Prepared”.
The emphasis is by training through hands on training in outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, canoeing and backpacking. The Explorer Troop operates in Patrols of 6 to 8 members led by a Patrol Leader who shares responsibility with an adult leader for discipline, activity planning and training the less experienced members. The new Explorer starts as a Tenderfoot and then progresses to Second Class.
Boys and/or girls may join this section between the ages of 8 and 11, depending upon the composition of the Group. Their motto is “Do Your Best”.
They join in many games and practical activities based on the Jungle Book as written by B-P’s friend Rudyard Kipling. Much of their learning is ‘by doing’. The program is based on the “Tenderpad to Second Star” and starts to focus more on outdoor activities. “New Chums” join and are invested becoming Tenderpads. They progress then from First Star to Second Star with the highest award being the Leaping Wolf Badge.
Their motto is “Busy and Bright”.
The Otters are the youngest section in our Association with children joining at the age of 5 years of age and going to the Timber Wolf Pack at the age of 8
Otters learn useful family skills, community skills, and learn to play safely together. There is a proficiency badge system of four “paws”, a Safety Badge, Service Badge and a Camping Badge. The highest award is the Swimming Otter Badge.
