New Members

Youth members are welcome to visit our Scout Group for up to three weeks before deciding to join.  New members should complete this form Y1 – Youth Member Application

From the night he or she is invested, all members are expected to wear uniform unless advised otherwise. The uniform order form is available here Scouts uniform order form 2017
The essential parts of the uniform are shirts, hats and our group activity shirt. Our group bucket hat provides good shade to the face, caps are strongly discouraged because of the lack of sun protection. From time to time second hand uniforms are available. If you are interested please ask.
The group keeps a stock of scarves and woggles that will be presented when the new member is invested (cost is on the uniform order sheet).

Pocketbooks are also essential in the Cub, Scout and Venturer Sections. The cost of these books is $10.

A Scout group is entirely self-funded. The expenses of a Scout Group are various and substantial. A major cost is the purchasing of badges, certificates etc. The Group must also meet the cost of maintaining and replacing camping equipment in first class, safe condition. We must also pay for the upkeep of the Hall and registration and insurance through Scouts WA. The Group’s running costs are assisted by term subs which are due before week 4 of each term but fund raising is essential for any Scout Group.
Carey Park Scout Group Fees and Subs 2017

Carey Park Scouts is registered with the Kidsport program in the City of Bunbury and Shire of Capel. If your family qualifies for this program then up to $200 of fees and subs can be paid through this program.

1. Assisting with the running of meeting nights. Joeys, Cubs and Scouts have a parent roster relevant to their needs. There are many occasions when the leaders need an extra pair of hands, eyes and ears. In all sections extra adults play a vital role in maintaining an effective adult/child ratio. Adult helpers can be parents, grandparents, carers, siblings or interested community members. Working with children’s cards are essential for regular helpers.

2. Fundraising. All families must be willing to be involved in fundraising. Some sporting groups may expect a family levy instead, but this would put scouting out of the reach of many families. Carey Park Scouts have acquired an inflatable obstacle course through funding from BHP and running this at local festivals assists keep our group afloat. A team of Scouts, Venturers and adults is required for each event.

3. Joining the Support Committee. Many hands make light work. This involves about 6 meetings a year and manages and maintains the resources of our Group. As well as the occasional grant writing or other fund raising.

4. Becoming a uniformed leader. Leadership is fun and rewarding and if it interests you, please find our more about it from any one of our leaders. They will tell you that they get just as much enjoyment out of it as the kids, and a very real sense of achievement and of doing something worthwhile for the community. Many different skills go together to make an effective team, so whether your skills are in organisation, outdoor activities or just a sympathetic ear, please come forward. The Scout Association provides wonderful training, the only regret of most leaders is that they didn’t do it sooner. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to be involved.
