What do our parents, scouts and volunteers say?
Cubs Scouts are awesome, my two boys love being in it and they have experiences that they will remember all their life. I fully recommend joining!
I really like volunteering for Bayside Sea Scouts. They are very organised and do a fantastic job, all of which is done for our children on a voluntary basis. Join up to volunteer today!
