Welcome to Normanhurst Scouts
Joeys: ages 6 - 8
Joey Scouts is the first Section of Scouts, for boys and girls aged 6 – 8. The emphasis is on fun and friendship and a gentle introduction to a world of challenges and adventures through Scouting. Normanhurst Joeys meet Wednesday nights between 6:00 and 7:00pm.
Venturers: ages 15 - 17
Bored? Feel like doing something with your life? Don’t know where to start? Try Venturer Scouts. It’s a do-it-yourself mix of fun, adventure and personal challenge that will bring you together with other young people who feel the same way. Normanhurst Venturers meet Tuesday nights between 7:30 and 9:30pm.
Cubs: ages 8 - 10
Cub Scouts have a lot of fun doing a lot of interesting things! There are games to play, codes and skills to learn, places to see and new friends to meet. Cub Scouts all help each other, and try to help other people too. Normanhurst Cubs meet Monday nights between 7:00 and 8:30pm.
Rovers: ages 18 - 25
Challenging outdoor activities such as bushwalking, canoeing, sailing, caving, ski-touring, canyoning, four-wheel driving, rock-climbing and scuba diving all form an important part of a Rover’s calendar. For more information visit the Normo Rover Crew website.
Scouts: ages 11 - 14
Scouts are one of the best kept secrets for young people aged 11 – 15 and no wonder! It is the biggest and most successful youth organisation in Australia with thousands of girls and boys enjoying an almost unlimited range of activities. Normanhurst Scouts meet Thursday nights between 7:00 and 9:00pm.
LeadersWe would love to have you join our team. You can be as involved as much or as little as you want. Leaders are given training and support by other Leaders from Scouts Australia, and are given resources of program ideas. There is training in all aspects of youth leadership, program planning, safety and other requirements.
What am I needed to do?
The success of scouting at Normo not only relies on the youth members, the enthusiastic leaders and the group committee but also the families. We need the support of everyone to give our group the best scouting experience possible.
What do I need to do to support my child in scouting?
- All parents are needed to support the groups fundraising efforts.
- Attend at least one working bee per year as scheduled.
- Assist the section leaders with transport etc. when required
We are happy for those interested in learning more abouts scouting to come along a visit us on some of our meeting nights to get a feel for the fun and activities.
