Bayside Sea Scouts is entirely volunteer run.

We would love to have you join the team!

What do our volunteers do?

“Both my children are Bayside Sea Scouts and I love that I am able to help.  Volunteering my time at a Fundraising event, is a great way to meet other parents and form great friendships.  Seeing my kids, learn new skills, gain confidence and make wonderful friends, on a section night, as a parent helper is wonderful.  I know by helping as a volunteer at Bayside Sea Scouts is helping a whole generation of kids gain life skills they would not get anywhere else.  The opportunities, I can help give all the Youth Members, by doing my bit is worth it when I see a Scout looking out for a Cub or a Venturer looking out for a Scout and our amazing Leaders looking out for everyone.  Volunteer today to help raise the great adults of our future.”

Rebecca Meagher – Volunteer Fundraising Coordinator and Mum of Cub and Venturer.

0
Fake injuries mended

Rescues and emergency drills are all part of what our Sea Scouts learn how to manage. The only way to prep for this is with lots of fake blood, rolls of stretchy bandages and a willingness to get wet, dirty and covered in paint.

0
Group Photos Taken

Sea Scouts will give children memories for life. Our volunteers make sure they have the proof to back up tall stories and fun adventures for every single member of our group.

0
Cups of Coffee Sipped

All parents are encouraged to get involved and help keep our organisation amazing by volunteering. There’s nothing like a coffee to get your mind on the job whether at the hall, in the camp or by the boats.

0
Adventures facilitated

You never know what you’ll be called on to do in the name of Bayside Sea Scouts. But whatever it is it’s guaranteed to be a lot of fun (with possibly a lot of washing up afterwards!).
