  2. Pay the invoice (see Fees for more information)

  5. During the following weeks your Scout will be taken through an Intro to Scouting during the normal meeting times and the section leaders will contact you when an investiture date has been organised.

Investiture

Being invested is an exciting time and we welcome family and friends to watch and take photographs of their Scout saying their promise and being presented with the group scarf, woggle and badges. These include the group, district and region name badges, the World Membership Badge and the Australian Flag Badge. The only organisations officially allowed to wear the Australian flag as a badge on their uniforms are the Australian Defence Force and Australian Scouts


New Scouts will be lead through the promise so do not need to be able to recite it alone however some Scouts take great pleasure in being able to do so and will be given the opportunity if they would like.
