Lord Baden Powell - Founder of the Scouting Movement

Located at the northen most point of the Illawarra 1st Helensburgh Scout Group has been operating since 1911. Officially registered in 1916 we will be celebrating our 100 years of registration in March of 2016.

Scouting aims to provide a fun and exciting environment for all young people (male and female) from ages 6 and through into adulthood. 

Our Group is always looking for new youth members as well as adults who can become leaders or help support the group.

For our youth members they can look forward to taking part in activities that you can be part of include camping, hiking, canoeing, indoor rock climbing and gliding as well as gaining plenty of other valuable experiences and life skills.

We operate most weeks of the school term at the Scout hall.
