Dear Parent,

The start of the 2017 Scouting Year is around the corner, and with it comes the opportunity for your child to join the 1st Blackburn Scouting Group and take part in the upcoming Scouting Year

Information on how to register your child online can be found at
For parents who are looking for an opportunity to speak with the various Scouting Leaders, a registration night is being held at the Blackburn Hamlet Hall on 8 Sep 2016 from 1800 to 2000. Scouting Leaders from the various sections will on hand to answer any questions you might have.

The Fee for 2016-2017 has been set at $225 and is payable online. From July 1 – December 31, a fee of $225 applies. For registrations after January 1, 2017, a fee of $165 applies. Note that Group fees for special activities are additional and will vary by Section.

A new feature for this year is the Wait List function. In the event that a Section is full at the time you are attempting to register your child online, you will be able to place your child on a wait list by selecting the contact/waitlist option in Find a Group. This automated feature will ensure that requests to join a Section are prioritized by date.

Further instructions can be found on the Help Centre’s knowledge base.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you require any assistance.
