Opening Evening at Cloyne Scouting Group


Scouting Ireland is a voluntary educational movement for young people. It is open to all without distinction of origin, race, creed, gender, sexual orientation, or ability. Scouting exists to actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society. The aim of scouting is to encourage the social, physical, intellectual, character, emotional and spiritual development of young people so that they may achieve their full potential and, as responsible citizens, to improve society.
The scout group in Cloyne was reignited in June 2016 and since then there is a long waiting list of children to join.
We currently have a Beaver scout group ages 6-8 and a Cub scout group ages 9-11 it is our hope to start a Scout group in September ’19 ages 12-15.
Since the scout group has started we have had over night camp outs, hiking, surfing, fire and Garda station visits, pioneering, orienteering, backwoods cooking and learning first aid to name a few activities.
But we urgently need adult volunteers to support bringing the new children into the group. There are roles for everyone in scouting and most take no more than an hour a week. We understand life can be busy and this in itself deters people from joining a scouting group. It is not necessary to commit to coming to every meeting, but it is important that you are able to commit to being on a roster for meetings so every week gets covered.
We are asking any parent whose children are interested in becoming a scout member or a Rover Scout who may be interested in taking on a leader role in the Cloyne group to come along to our open evening on Wednesday 8th May at 7.30pm in the Community Hall Cloyne (located next to the playground). Come along and see what Scouting is all about.
