The two locations hosting events are the Tilligerry Park next to the RSL and Sports Club, and Raymond Terrace behind the library in the park on Adelaide Street.

The Open Days will take place on Sunday 25 February 2018, giving members of the community the opportunity to come along and try out the adventures their local Scouts have to offer.

Jane Hogno, District Commissioner Port Stephens, says the event is a great opportunity for young people and their parents to learn more about Scouting, and the programs and activities in place to help youth members develop confidence, resilience and responsibility.

“Youth will be able to join a free six-week trial period, meet the Leaders, and get a glimpse of what activities the Group has planned throughout the year,” she said.

Scouts is a world wide organisation for youth aged from six to twenty-six years.

It teaches social and leadership skills through challenge and outdoor adventure.

The program follows the school calendar year, with activities held on weekends and during school holidays.

According to Region Commissioner Steve Fernie, there are more than 20 000 members in NSW.

“We have developed a strong, fun program based on the needs of today’s youth,” he said.

The Open Day will run from 10am until 2pm.

All are welcome to attend!
