Mackay and Whitsunday Life
Do you wish to further develop your child’s independence, confidence, initiative, and ability?
Then Proserpine Scout Group is the place to go!
Built upon the values of assisting young people to achieve their full physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual potentials, Proserpine Scouts works to develop the region's young people into responsible global citizens and capable resources for their community.
Savi Griffith joined Proserpine Scout Group two years ago and has continued to thrive. Initially, she joined the group because she wanted to meet new people and have fun.
“I like Scouts because I learn so much. I learnt how to tie different knots, put up a tent, cook food, and great survival skills. We also learn about First Aid, so I can help when people get hurt,” she said.
“I love meeting up with my friends on Tuesday and meeting new friends at Cuboree.”
Ryan Penhallurick is a fifth generation Proserpine Scout and he flourishes with the adventures that Scouts take him on.
“We attended a 2-night camp called Scoutfest 2023 at Rowallan Park, Mackay. We got to try out a whole bunch of activities like abseiling, archery, kayaking, mud run, mountain biking and rock climbing,” he explained.
Savi, Ryan, and the Proserpine Scouts are joined with a number of Adult Helpers, and their Qualified Leader, Sally Griffith, who joined shortly after her daughter, and has enjoyed giving back to the youth, and exploring the adventures that Scouts offer.
“Being a Leader has opened up so many avenues for me to be able to do activities that would not be available outside of Scouts QLD,” she explained.
If this sounds amazing, and you are interested about joining Proserpine Scout Group, as a Leader, Adult Helper or for your child please email the group on firstname.lastname@example.org.
