New Scouts or Cubs
The first step is to either visit the hall on one of the cub or scout nights and talk to a leader or email one of the leaders to let us know that you’re interested. Sometimes there is a waiting list to join.
There is an online application form for Scouts Australia so that they can provide you with a Scouting Number and they also look after the various insurances.
All Youth Members must have a completed Youth Application form and the relevant links (Cubs or Scouts) are given below. If you have not yet contacted the Group Leader the online form allows for that to be organised. Contact with the Scout or Cub Leaders is advised before undertaking a trial night.
Cub Membership form (8-11 yrs old):
Scout Membership Form (11-15 years old):
After your child has had a chance to see what its all about and decided he/she wishes to be invested as a Cub or Scout, we’ll ask you to pay your annual membership (this covers the levy we pass on to Scouts Australia for insurance, and the fee used by 1st Pymble to maintain the equipment, hall, etc). If you are joining after 30 June then the fee is reduced.
An invoice for the fees is sent out in the first quarter of the year and covers the whole calendar year, if you are joining later in the year then the fees are pro-rata. Please contact the email@example.com for information/invoice.
