The Scouts sign up

Isis Town and Country - - Childers Show -

DO you want to help your com­mu­nity and gain lead­er­ship and man­age­ment qual­i­fi­ca­tions?

If so, Childers Scouts want to hear from you.

Leader in Charge Bob Ed­mis­ton said the Childers Scout Group had pro­vided a scout­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for the youth of Childers since 1953 and were look­ing for lead­ers in the Cub and Scout sec­tions. The Cub and Scout sec­tions cover youth aged be­tween 8 and 15 years.

Mr Ed­mis­ton, who has been in­volved with scout­ing for 19 years, said scouts took part in a huge range of in­door and out­door ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing camps.

“The best thing about vol­un­teer­ing is watch­ing the youth de­velop and grow to make a use­ful con­tri­bu­tion to so­ci­ety,” he said

Scouts pro­vide the train­ing at no cost. There’s no ex­pe­ri­ence nec­es­sary and train­ing is de­liv­ered by e-learn­ing and prac­ti­cal week­end cour­ses.

Scout­ing came to Aus­tralia in Au­gust 1908; it was founded in Eng­land in 1907

Scouts Aus­tralia has about 66,000 mem­bers
