1st Hurstbridge Scout Group


Scouts has over 40 million members in 161 National Scout Organisations around the world! Here in Australia we have almost 70,000 members, making it the largest youth movement in the nation.

Hurstbridge Scouts provides young Aussies aged 5 to 25 with fun and challenging opportunities to grow through adventure. For adults there’s also the chance to make a difference and have a huge amount of fun along the way.

Today's Scouts can take part in an extraordinary variety of outdoor activities, from ‘traditional Scouting skills’ such as camping and bushcraft, through to more extreme challenges such as abseiling, overnight hiking, rafting, canoeing, canyoning, snow activities, rock climbing, sailing… even flying!

Scouts can get involved in performing arts, leadership development, community service, amateur radio operation, environmental projects, large-scale Australian events such as Cuborees, Jamborees and Ventures, international events, and service projects in developing countries.

Scouts also learn valuable practical skills such as first aid and cooking… and fun skills, like how to build a ballista and fire wet sponges at their mates!

Interested in becoming a Leader or Adult Volunteer?

1st Hurstbridge Scout Group’s ongoing success is due to the enthusiastic and committed adult volunteers from all walks of life who love adventure and take great pride in encouraging our young Aussies to reach their full potential.

Most Leaders are parents enjoying the opportunity to share time with their child – watching them learn new skills, grow in confidence, and achieve badges, meeting their friends and being able to take an active interest in this area of their life. It’s also a chance to make new friends, offer others the benefit of their life experiences, and contribute to the local community.

Why not join the Group Committee?
Every Scout Group has a parent committee (know as a Group Committee) that meet once a month. It role is to assist the Group leader in providing the resources needed by the Section Leaders to run effective and safe programs. It doesn’t have a role in the training of youth members.
