Scout Camp Cancelled

Unfortunately due to COVID restrictions and catastrophic fire conditions this weekend we have had to cancel the Scout camp planned for this weekend. I know your Scout leaders are all very sad that this has had to happen but we respect the decisions made by SA Health and Forestry SA.
We will try to make sure a camp happens ASAP in 2021 and in the meantime your leaders will be preparing something fun for a Zoom this Friday night. Thanks for your understanding and support.

Face to face scouting to cease until further notice

Scouts SA Action
Scouts SA advises that in line with COVID Directions and to play our part as responsible South Australian citizens, that all face to face Scouting activities are required to cease as of 11.59pm tonight, Monday 16th November.

Activities planned for tonight (Monday 16 November) may still continue. This impacts all youth activities, meetings and functions.

Current indications from SA Government are that if all South Australians act now that these restrictions will hopefully only last 2 weeks.

COVID-19 Update

To our youth members and families;
Our COVID safe plan Step 3 has been approved and we will be returning to Face to Face Scouting at the hall week commencing July 20th 2020.
There will be some changes to our Scouting experience as COVID 19 remains a concern and the necessary hygiene practices associated become a part of our normal.
If your child will not be returning to Scouting please advise us ASAP.
If your child is unwell they must not attend their meeting.
There will be attendance taken at each meeting to ensure we can contact trace where needed if a case occurs.
We will be cleaning frequent touch surfaces at the beginning and end of each meeting.
Hand sanitation on entry and exit is a requirement. Anyone who refuses will be asked to leave.
Please bring your youth member to the door of the Scout hall for meeting or for older members advise if they are making their own way to and from the hall. We ask that parents/carers do not hang around during the unit meetings unless they are a registered parent helper/leader.
DO NOT socialise outside the hall doors at drop off/pickup times. We need to maintain social distancing requirements and will face fines of up to $5000 if we are not following the regulations set by SA Government.
If your child is showing signs of being unwell during a meeting we will be calling you to come and pick them up.
Thank you for your understanding and we are so excited to see our families back in the environment in which Scouting best flourishes.
Please contact me at or 0431705321 if you have any questions.
