Free 4 Week Trial of Scouting

At the start of your free four week trial you will need to hand in a  Youth Membership Application (Y1) Form to your Leader,
this then ensures that your child is covered under the Scouts Australia NSW insurance policy during the free trial period.
Please note that by signing the Y1 form you agree to the Scouts NSW Privacy Policy. If you have any issues with this, please
disuss with your Section Leader.

The trial period gives you the opportunity to see if Scouting is a good fit for your child and family, and it provides Leaders
with opportunities to evaluate your child's development needs, and determine whether we have the capacity to cater to the needs of
your child.

See our Joining 1st Ermington document or visit our fees page for more information on current fees payable prior to investiture.

CareMonkey

1st Ermington Scout Group uses CareMonkey - Electronic Health Form to manage medical details.

Once your child has been registered and allocated a membership number you will receive a request to complete/re-share a CareMonkey Profile.
