1st Balnarring Scout Group started in April 1991.

At their annual breakup Wed 7th Dec 2106, the Scout Group celebrated 25 years.

The night of celebration was a combination of games on the oval, Ice-blocking , food, chatter, meeting old friends and the opportunity to reminisce with passed and present stories. 

Presently 1st Balnarring Scout Group consists of two sections Cubs [71/2-11years] and Scouts [101/2-15 years]. Both sections have been currently going from strength to strength and this was seen on the night of the celebrations. It was a fabulous infusion of youth, leaders current families and passed scouting families.
Scouting has a fascination with the past and the support shown by the youth, leaders and families from years passed meant that 1st Balnarring Scout Group has a very proud, fun and active program with community minded activities and this has permeated through the 25 years of this rich history.   

Historically, the Group’s activities have included canoe hikes during the Easter holidays on the Glenelg, Goulburn, Murray and the Mitchell Rivers.  Annual ‘no adults’ camp at JHP (Bay Park) campsite in Mt Martha and family camps run annually in South Gippsland at the Bear Gully Reserve. The main fundraising was the ‘Scones and Billy Tea’ at the Emu Plains Market. The scones were cooked in their ingenious camp ovens constructed of steel and mud, with a chimney and a pit trench for the fire to boil the billy’s.

Our present youth, leaders and families reflected on the past proud traditions of 1st Balnarring Scout group knowing that their current programing was upholding those that had come before them and they were supporting the belief they have that Scouting exists to actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.

1st Balnarring Scout Group would like to take this opportunity to thank those that have supported the group and also to Scouting in general either in the past or for their ongoing support going forward.
