Joining

Come and Try Scouting at 1st Casey Scout Group!

New to Scouting? Would you like to find out more? Your child is most welcome to come along and try Cubs or Scouts at one of our meeting nights. It is an opportunity for you and your child to meet our Section Leaders, find out about what we do, and participate in activities. Our Leaders will arrange for you to come along for a meeting, assist with any questions you may have, as well as provide you with forms and information. Before your child can participate in any Cub or Scout meetings you will need to complete an Application for Youth Membership form. This will give automatic insurance cover for your child whilst they are deciding if Scouting is for them.
How it Works

If after discussing the membership with the leader and there is room in the section, your child is welcome to come along for a trial period of three weeks, before you are required to pay the annual membership fees. After the first three weeks and once the joining and membership fees are paid, the Group Leader and Section Leaders will discuss a date for Investiture. On investiture your child will be registered as a member of the Scout Association, and from the following term subscriptions fees will be due. To find out more, email our Group Leader, Michelle Nichols, who will happy to send you further information.
Waiting List

From time to time, our youth sections are filled to capacity (i.e. full) and cannot accept any new members. This is currently the case with our Cub and Scout sections. However, your child can be added to our waiting list, with the next vacancies being available in Term 2. Please contact our Group Leader, Michelle Nichols via gl.casey1st@vicscouts.asn.au for more information on putting your child on a waiting list to join Cubs or Scouts.
