1st Byron Bay Scout group is one of the oldest community-based organisations in the region. The group was initially set up in 1910, just two years after the movement was launched internationally. The current hall in Tennyson St was constructed with a budget of 250 pounds in 1938.
The group caters for boys and girls aged 8 – 18 years and it presently has more than 70 members.
OUR SCOUT GROUPS
Cub Scouts is for boys and girls aged 8 to 10 years, and focuses on exploring the outdoors, discovery and learning interesting things! Cub Scouts belong to a Pack and begin to learn leadership and teamwork in small teams called Sixes.
If you enjoy fun, games and learning new skills then you’ll love being a Cub Scout! You’ll get to go on camps with your Pack, and you might attend a Cuboree camp with hundreds of other Cub Scouts! As well as learning things like how to use a compass, you’ll go on bushwalks, bike trips, and have the chance to do things like sailing, canoeing and even abseiling!
The Scout section is for boys and girls aged 11 to 14 years and offers an amazing array of activities designed to teach important life skills and get Scouts social and active!
Scouts, as a section, focuses on allowing young people to develop their confidence and teaches them how to work as part of a team. Scouts learn essential outdoor safety skills as well as participate in a variety of physical and intellectual challenges. The programs are designed to target each young person’s own special interests, encouraging them to enjoy their favourite hobbies using meaningful badges and awards.
Venturer Scouts is a do-it-yourself mix of fun, adventure and personal challenge that brings together like-minded young people (male and female) aged 14 to 17 from all walks of life.
As a Venturer Scout, you may find yourself exploring wilderness Australia, camping above the snowline or diving on coral reefs. Whatever your challenge, there will be trained and highly experienced adults to guide you through the experience, to teach you the necessary skills and safety techniques.
Venturer Scouts get the opportunity to travel overseas and to organised activities, to live with a different community and to provide service to others.
You don’t need to have any previous Scouting experience. We’ll help you catch up.
