The following is what we like to tell all new families when visiting West Centenary Scout Group for the first time.
Come and visit for two weeks
Come and visit for two weeks at no cost. Complete the form at the bottom of this page to be sent the Non-member (F6) form, which we needed completed for each visit. We normally have spare copies of this form at the hall.
We recommend two weeks because the first visit can be a little daunting, and by the second week the visiting youth is more confident in what is happening. Also, our program is different each week, so two visits gives you a better idea as to what we do.
About scouting, and West Centenary Scout Group
See here for the membership fee’s.
You will also need to purchase a…
- Uniform shirt
For youth members, we recommend the polo shirt if it is available over the button up shirt as the polo It is more durable.
- Queensland Scarf
When buying from the online Scout Shop, make sure the scarf’s name is Queensland Youth Scarf, else it may not have the state badge on tip of the scarf.
Recommend a fabric wiggle with velcro. They tend to fall off less often than the leather woggle with the metal Queensland shaped badge on it. Also, when the leather woggles are lost in the leaf litter outside, they are very hard to find.
Uniforms can be purchased from either
- The Scout Shop online at https://ScoutShop.com.au
- Take note of the sizing guide on the page for the shirt
- Moreton Region Scout Shop
- Cameron Park, Easton St, Booval, Ipswich
- Monday: 9am to midday
- Thursdays: 5pm to 9pm
- Saturdays: 9am to midday
- Closed: School holidays & Public holidays
New Youth Members
As soon as you know your child wants to join, you will need to complete the Youth Members Application Form (A5). Please fill in the contact form below to receive an automated email with a link to the relevant application form. Before filling in the form, we ask that you read both…
- the Welcome to the West Centenary Scout Group brochure, and
- the Scouts Queensland Parent Welcome Pack.
If possible both parents should sign the form (Part G), or please provide a simple explanation if only one signature is provided (eg Single Parent, or applicant is over the age of 18, i.e. Rovers may sign the form for themselves).
The form includes important information about the new youth member and will ensure that they are covered by the Scout Association insurance. It will also help us and the Scout Association communicate with you.
Once the form is completed, hand it to the leader next time you come to scouts. Once received, we will make sure that the section leaders have your details so they can communicate with you, and pass your contact details to the Group Committee so they can invoice you for the Group fees and “Subs” (Section Subscription fees).
Cooling Off Period
Understandably Scouts is not for everyone. If the new youth member decides within six weeks that they do not wish to remain in scouting, please write to us requesting withdrawal from the organisation. A refund will be provided only if the request reaches Scouts Queensland HQ within six weeks of first joining.
New Membership Enquiries and Forms
By filling in the form below, an automated email will be sent to you with a links to the required forms. Also, the relevant leaders in the group will be CC’d on the same email.
Please complete the forms, fill in the payment details for the initial youth membership fee, print & sign them then either reply-to-all with a scanned copy of the form or hand it to your section leader that the next meeting.
