Chances are you've seen some new logo's for Scouts Australia starting to appear around the place.
Here's the video that's the background to the new branding - www.facebook.com/ScoutsAustralia/videos/365222037624536/

Note that we'll be up for LOTS of changes in the near future with changes to how our youth members earn their various badges too with changes driven from the "YPR" (Youth Program Review) which has been taking place since back in 2013.

Change can be challenging for some. But change is good because it ensures that Scouting remains "fresh" and "relevant" to our youth of today. After all, it's our youth members who are effectively the "customers" (even if parents are the ones who pay the fees!)

Cheers and see you over the next few weeks when our various sections return - Moose.

Scouts Australia
We're proud to share with you the story of our new brand identity, launched last night at AJ2019 - 25th Australian Jamboree Opening Ceremony. Stay tuned for the release of brand assets and guidelines for our members.

New chums, don't panic registrations will be open for a while yet and as soon as we get your member number we will let you know.

A lot of our current cubs will be old enough to attend.
