Scouting is all about education for life. With programs that teach practical life skills for every age group in a fun and adventurous way, Scouting helps young people develop into strong, resilient adults and confident leaders.
Their programs are so effective and valued that many educational institutions from schools to universities often give credit for Scouting achievements.
The 1st Cockatoo Scout Group was established in 1923, with local Roy Davies, registering as the first scout leader in November 1923. Roy took 6 young scouts under his wing, and thus began our scouting heritage. Since then, 1st Cockatoo Scouts have been a constant in our community, whether it be a small or large group.
We are a hardworking group, committed to the scouting life, and supporting our young members through their scouting journey, as well as taking an active role in community events such as the Cockatoo Country Market, Australia Day Breakfast, and Anzac Day.
Group Days and Times.
All Joey, Cub and Scout Groups meet once per week, during the school terms. These days and times are listed below.
In the event of group or district activities, including camps, there may be more than one night of scouting activities in that week.
We attempt to provide as much notice as possible in regard to extra events, change of nights or when a regular meeting is to be held in a venue outside of the scout hall.
Joeys: Tuesdays 5:30pm-6:30pm 5-8yrs (must be attending school)
Cubs: Mondays 7pm— 8:30pm 8-11yrs
Scouts: Tuesdays 7pm-9pm 11-15yrs
Now, we need your help. As we approach our centenary, we are actively seeking new leaders for our Joeys, Cubs and Scouts. It’s free to join, and you can be part of the inspiration and encouragement of our future leaders. Plus, it’s a heckuva lot of fun.
