Welcome to 1st Lower Templestowe Scouts

A message from Andrew Stuckey, Group Leader

Scouting prides itself on the training of it's volunteers. And at 1st Lower Templestowe we are lucky to not only have well trained leaders, but also leaders with a wealth of experience. Each of our youth section leaders has over 10 years experience in scouting. In fact some of them have never left the group since being youth members themselves.

As such 1st Lower Templestowe can offer a superior scouting programme that will instil self belief, confidence, community and leadership qualities in the youth under their supervision. Simply put, we are in the business of nurturing the leaders of tomorrow.

I invite you to come on down to the hall to experience the 1st Lower Templestowe hospitality. We welcome everybody, and I am really proud that we host a group with members from such diverse backgrounds. It makes for the best 'Pot Luck' dinner going!.

Mission of Scouting

The Mission of Scouting is to contribute to the education of young people, through a value system based on the Scout Promise and Law, to help build a better world where people are self-fulfilled as individuals and play a constructive role in society.

Our Purpose

The Purpose of the Scout Movement is to contribute to the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual potentials as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities.

Our Leaders

Friendly enthusiastic and well trained Leaders offer quality programs with interaction and personal development being paramount. Scouting is all about 'learning by doing', but there is also a lot of fun involved. Programs are tailored to the age groups and as they progress through the sections independence and self reliance are learned through the Patrol system.
