Super Busy Scouts
Dayboro Scouts are fortunate to have Eagle, Roo and Hawkleye as our Scout Leaders in conjunction with the Patrol Leaders and Assistance Patrol Leaders, the Scout Leaders plan fantastic activities for you and your Troop.
Dayboro’s Scout Troop meet on a Thursday night 6:00pm – 8:00pm at our local Scout Den. Scout Troops, which are comprised of several Scout Patrols, usually meet every week to discuss their progress and work towards achieving their goals. Scout meetings consist of team-building activities, playing games, developing specialised skills and knowledge, and planning for weekend adventures and campouts. At meetings, Troop members share stories and experiences of their recent adventures and offer advice to one another. Scout Leaders teach safety lessons on how to use equipment correctly and inspire their Scouts to be the best individuals and team players that they can be.
For more information about the Dayboro Scout Troup, contact Eagle, Roo or Hawkeye at firstname.lastname@example.org
When a Scout turns 15, they can link up to the Dayboro Venturers.
Scouts wear a uniform consisting of navy blue shorts and a shirt with green shoulder and sleeve stripe that can be obtained from The Scout Shop which is only available online. Recent changes have meant that Scouts Queensland have closed their uniform shop at Auchenflower. Sometimes second hand uniforms may be available from previous Scouts so be sure to check out our classifieds.
Information on the correct placement of badges can be found in this document.
