Scouts – FAQ


Can my child come and try Scouting?

We recommend that all kids come for a trial meeting or two before committing to Scouting.  Let us know if they have any friends who are already members – we can keep them together.

Do you go camping?

Scouting without camps? No way!

We usually go camping three times a year for one or two nights.  Cubs are usually accompanied by a parent, while Scouts & Venturers camp independently.  We camp in tents at different locations in Singapore.

The Venturers have the opportunity to attend extended camp in the National Parks in Malaysia where they experience jungle trekking and develop survival skills. 

Do parents have to attend?

The activities are run by Adult Leaders, sometimes with assistance from Youth Leaders.  There is no requirement for parents to attend.  However, for some activities we ask for assistance where it will enhance safety or the experience.

Can I get involved?

Yes, we would love that!  It is a great way to share experiences with your child and their friends, and to have fun yourself!

How do I know what is happening each week?

We use two ways of letting you know what is on.  The term program is available in TeamApp.

TeamApp is an smartphone application for running sport and social groups.  We use it for the schedule and RSVPs.

For last minute updates, we use WhatsApp.  There is a parent WhatsApp group for each section (Joeys, Cubs, Scouts, Venturers)

Next Step After a Trial Meeting

If you decide Scouting is for you, you can join through the ANZA site and order the uniform.  When we have confirmed your membership, we:

  • Organise the activity shirt and formal uniform
  • Add you and your Scouts to the TeamApp and WhatsApp groups

You will now receive the regular notifications an updates.
