Scouts

Mount Stuart Scouts do many exciting things, including camping, hiking, visits to interesting places and other social events on a regular basis. The Scout Unit's weekly meetings also include many action-filled activities.
Each year our Scouts attend the Scout Guide Regatta, held at Snug Beach, Tasmania. The Regatta is held over the long weekend in March, and is attended by Scouts, Venturers, Rovers, and Guides from across the state. There are a number of land and water based activities, some of which are 'serious' events, but most are simply fun.

Our Unit also competes in the annual Clark Trophy, a fun weekend to challenge a patrol and their Scouting knowledge. In recent times our Scouts have also attended Australian Jamborees, which are held at various locations around Australia. Many of our Scouts have achieved the highest award in the scout section - the Australian Scout Medallion.

Mount Stuart Scouts meet from 6:45-8:45 pm on Wednesday nights during the school year. For more information about Scouts, contact us.
