Join the boys and girls of the German Australian Pfadfinder Scouts, as a Joey (6-8 years) or a Cub (8-10 years), or a Scout (11-14 years).
Children need to know enough German to understand basic instructions. Fluent and passive bilingual children are given priority enrolment. Children learning German are also welcome as long as our 5 to 1 fluent to learner ratio is met.
Would you be interested in a German-learner Scout group for children whose German is less fluent? Please let us know!

* Scouts is an absolute bargain, costing only $70 per term ($50 per term if you pay in advance for the year). There are 4 terms per year, each packed with an incredibly exciting and varied program. Please allow for a uniform (about $30), and occasional excursions (under $50 per year last year, as most are subsidised).
Our scarves are yellow (like Scouts in Germany) and red (the common colour which appears on the German, Austrian, Swiss and Australian flags).
