Cooling Off Period

If, after joining the Pamphlett-Tennyson Sea Scout Group, a new youth member decides that scouting is not for them, we understand that this can happen. To formally withdraw from the organisation, the member or their parent/guardian should send a written request for withdrawal to the Group Leader within six weeks of joining so that we can update our records within Scouts Queensland. If the request is received within this timeframe, a full refund will be provided. It is important to understand that the decision to withdraw should be made thoughtfully, as scouting provides valuable experiences and opportunities for personal growth.

Parental Involvement

Every Scout Group can’t function without adult support! From time to time, our Group may seek your assistance for various activities and functions but parents are always in control to how much they want to contribute to Scouting! To learn more about this, visit our Parental Involvement page.
