About Scouts

The Goodna Scout troop is a group of girls and boys aged 10.5 to 15 years who enjoy outdoor activities, some of which are camping, abseiling, canoeing, rock climbing, archery and playing games. We also learn how to build bridges and swings.

Scouts meet at the Goodna Scout Den on Thursday nights from 6:30 - 8:30 pm excluding school holidays.
