The South Coast and Tablelands Scouting Region stretches from Helensburgh in the North to the Victorian Border in the South, and incorporates areas West to Goulburn, Queanbeyan and Jindabyne.

When we say ‘adventure’, we’re not just talking about the awesome range of outdoor activities that Scouts offers! In fact, ‘adventure’ can mean any exciting, novel or unusual experience, and Scouts offers such a huge range of opportunities that there’s always something new to try. And you can join at any age from 6 upwards!

Scouts are separated into age-based Sections – Joey Scouts (6-8), Cub Scouts (7.5-11), Scouts (10.5-15), Venturer Scouts (14.5-18) and Rover Scouts (18-25), with each Section taking more responsibility for their own activities as they progress. All Sections share a steady diet of self-respect, confidence, leadership, teamwork, creativity, environmental awareness and community involvement, and there are plenty of events and activities in which everyone can get involved together.

Scouts couldn’t provide such amazing experiences for young people without a huge group of dedicated and enthusiastic adult volunteers. If you’re aged 18 or over, why not contact your local Group and find out how you can rediscover adventure too? It doesn’t matter if you’ve never been a Scout… we’ll teach you everything you need to know!

Scouts NSW Advice: Coronavirus

No doubt you have heard in the media about the unfolding international Novel Coronavirus situation. With schools across NSW returning for the year and ahead of Scouting activities resuming this weekend, Scouts NSW has developed the following approach to guide our members with respect to risks arising from Coronavirus.

Scouts NSW has adopted the advice provided by the NSW Department of Health and the NSW Department of Education to parents with respect to Coronavirus.

At the time of sending this email, the NSW Department of Education, in consultation with the NSW Department of Health, recommends that students who have visited China in the last two weeks not attend school or childcare services until 14 days have lapsed from their date of departure from China. Scouts NSW has decided the same policy will apply to Scouting across NSW.

Please bear in mind this advice provided by the NSW State Government could change as authorities review the information at hand.

This is an evolving situation so please retrieve the latest information directly from the official NSW State Government website prior to communicating this information to your members ahead of your activities.

A link to the NSW State Government website is available under ‘Safety Alerts and Legislative Updates’ on the Health and Safety page of the Scouts NSW website.

I would be most grateful if could ensure this message is passed on to everyone in your Scout Group, as appropriate.

With best wishes,

Yours in Scouting,

Neville Tomkins OAM JP
Chief Commissioner

Possum Boxes for fire affected bushland
An event was held at Bunnings Warrawong to assemble 200 possum boxes to give to welfare groups to take into fire affected bushland. Local Scouting members from the environment team assisted with the making of these boxes. Bird box kits for kids were also put together as well.
Animal pouches made by St Georges Basin Venturers were donated to WIRES to also be used in the fire affected bushland.
