On their first night, before being permitted to participate in meeting activities, new members must complete the following forms, these are available from the Section Leader or Group Leader
- Application For Youth Membership (Y1)
- Annual Health Statement (H1)
This ensures that every member is covered by Scouts WA insurance.
The first four weeks are considered a no obligation introductory period, and there is no charge. If your child wishes to attend activities away from the hall during this time, you will need to complete a consent form (Y3) and have your child accompanied by a parent or guardian.
If you and your child decide to join our Group at the end of the introductory period, they will be formally welcomed into the Group in an investiture ceremony. You will need to pay membership fees prior to investment. Ideally your child will need to be in uniform for the investiture, and this can be purchased from the WA Scout Store www.scoutswastore.com.au/.
Not sure where to place all the badges? Check out the badge placement chart here.
Once your child is invested as a Scout, they become a member of the Worldwide Scouting Movement of over 60 million people!
Our Group expects behaviour that reflects the Scout Law and Promise. We have a duty of care to the whole Group, and any behaviour that is disruptive, aggressive or bullying will not be tolerated and may result in suspension. We will contact you first if any issues emerge.
Please let us know of any challenges or difficulties your child may have, and ways of managing these that you have found useful.
