Air Scouts Canberra
Scouts are usually given the opportunity to participate in activities with other Sections, and particularly at Air Scouts, the Joeys and Cubs are closely aligned as we currently meet on the same night, often sharing the Hall. The Scouts and Venturer sections also meet on the same night but their programs are presented independently.
Air Scouts Canberra is an active group with a full program, and some of the time, not all of the time, we apply our special interest in aviation and space to our activities. A usual Cub Group would visit a local fire station, and at Air Scouts, we would visit the fire station at the Airport.
During the summer months we make the most of daylight savings and warm weather and hold most activities, including week night meetings, outdoors in the park beside the Scout Hall.
Ask for our Term programs for more information on past activities.
There are a few activities that are inherently included in our pack program, such as games, campfire cooking, camping, craft and badge work – these will depend on the section as the age of the youth. When involved in adventurous activities such as canoeing, rock climbing and caving, adventurous activities leaders who have been trained and qualified in these activities will run the program.
