Scouts information session tonight

Scouting makes its much anticipated return to Stawell tonight with an information session at the Stawell Primary School from 5pm.

Parents are being urged to attend with boys, girls and their families and friends also invited to go along and find out what Scouting is all about.

A fun night of activities has been planned for the children with a jumping castle, climbing wall and plenty more.

The fun filled evening will run for about two hours and provide a mix of entertainment for the children with information for parents about Scouting.

Scouting provides a fun, adventure filled program of activities to give girls and boys life skills, confidence and a sense of belonging.

It provides an excellent and safe environment for social interaction with peers and other adults.

In Scouts children experience competitive and non-competitive activities that include weekly physical and problem solving activities in the Scout Hall.

They also take part in outdoor activities such as watersports, cooking, bushwalking, aerial challenges and camping.

Joey Scouts are for children aged between five and seven, Cub Scouts is for ages eight to 10, Scouts for 10-14, Venturers 14-17 and Rovers 18-25.

The ages between six and 10 are considered particularly important because that is when children start on a path towards independence, reasoning and problem solving. They become physically stronger and are ready to learn how to tackle challenges in life. Most of all they want to have fun.

Members of the community are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to assist in the resurrection of Scouting in Stawell, by attending the information evening tonight. Dinner will be provided.
