How to join Pfadfinder

We hope that you will love Pfadfinder as much as we do … a LOT!

To join Pfadfinder, we suggest  you come along to meet us first and have some fun. Contact us to see where we will be this week. Most nights we are at the Scout Hall or the surrounding Haig Park, but some nights we are out and about on excursions.

To join up:

Step 1:  Youth Application Form

After you’ve decided to join, then fill in an online Scouts ACT Youth Application form.  From the scout group drop-down list, choose Pfadfinder.

Step 2:  WWVP card for Parent(s)

You’ll need to apply for a free Working With Vulnerable People card for any adults who will accompany your child sometimes on our camps, and be joining in the fun helping out on our parent roster.  Your kids will love you for it!

When fillling in the form, under Employer/Organisation, put:

The Scout Association of Australia – ACT Branch
89 Kitchener Street, Garran, ACT 2605
Adult Volunteer
Contact: Sarah Smith
6282 5211
admin@scoutsact.com.au

Under ‘what regulated activity to you intend to engage in?’,  tick clubs, associations and movements.

Step 3:  Activity Consent Form

To be ready to attend scouting activities and camps away from the scout hall, you’ll also need to bookmark this activity consent form so it is easy to access when you need to.

Step 4:  Pay your  Fees

Once you’ve done that, you’ll need to find out what the costs and your involvement will be, and then pay your fees.  Prompt payment might even win you an ribbon, like our award-winning horse riders!

Step 5:  Join the Appropriate Mailing Lists

Make sure your email address has been added to the Pfadfinder email group.  Ask your pfadfinder.group.leader@spielwelt.org.au to do this.

Step 6:  Enjoy!

After that first bit of paperwork is out of the way, we absolutely promise to keep the formalities to a bare minimum, and the fun cranked up to maximum!

Wir freuen uns Euch kennenzulernen!  Bis bald!
