SOUTH AUSTRALIA LONE SCOUTS!
Scouting for everyone anywhere!
Lone Scouts is for those who want to participate in the Scouting community who may:
- live in a regional , rural or remote area,
- live on an isolated farm, small town on an island or overseas,
- have no Scout Group in their local area,
- live in a region where the Scout Group does not have a Unit appropriate to their age group,
- be unable attend a regular Scout meeting for various work, study, travel related situations or other reasons.
- May live near enough to a Scout Group but find it hazardous to travel at night, due to traffic or wildlife.
- attend a boarding school,
- be travelling around Australia.
Lone Scouts aren't lonely, they belong in Scouts!
S.A. Lone Scouts operate like a distance learning group with:
- Communication via the mail, telephone and internet
- Regular program resources available so that members can make the most out of their Scouting
- Overnight and holiday meetings, activities and camps.
- Programs provided on Social Media platforms, such as Zoom.
- Opportunities to participate in other Scout Group activities that are nearby.
- Opportunities to participate in Branch activities and events
- Opportunities to participate in National and International Scouting Events
- An opportunity to continue in Scouting so that you may later become a Leader in your local district!
S.A. Lone Scouts is a Scouting Group for youth and adults wishing to stay in Scouting but are unable to attend regular meetings, or are not living close to a Scout Group, especially one that does not have their Section to continue their journey in Scouting. S.A. Lone Scouts wants to help that youth member to do this and perhaps one day, return to their original Group as a leader themselves.
Our members mainly use the internet to communicate with one another but still plan to meet up with others for hikes and Branch events, when possible. As has been proven throughout the current pandemic situation, finding a balance between ‘on screen time’ and ‘real time’ activities is not an easy task but we are always applying new ways to keep moving forward by listening to our youth members, along with their families, to help achieve positive and ongoing solutions to any instances that may occur and more importantly, to help our youth members continue on their journey through Scouts along with achieving their goals.
