If you are completely new to Scouts you’ll find the following information very useful.
New Youth Members
New Youth Members are required to complete and submit a Youth Members Application Form (A5). 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 themselves).
By filling in the contact form below, you will 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.
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.
