The Australian Scout Medallion is the highest award for a scout to achieve under 15 years of age. It is a non-competitive program where each Scout takes part in adventure including overnight camps, hikes and leadership-based activities designed to encourage their personal, social and leadership skills.
The Batemans Bay Scout Group runs each Thursday night 6:30-8:30pm. New scouts are always welcome. Please contact Laszlo Schuster on 0403 942 456 for more information.
