Additional Information

ANNOUNCEMENT FROM EVENT ORGANISER: 2nd January 2021

As you would be aware, the last 24 hours has been a challenging time for Sydneysiders, with the declaration of two new COVID clusters and higher restrictions being applied. Considering these changes and reviewing current restrictions, we have made the difficult decision to defer our GWS Summer Scout Fun Days until April 2021.

Scouts NSW always puts the safety of our members first, and in the current environment, we feel that we cannot continue with the event we had planned. This decision was not made lightly.

Rather than cancel, we have decided to defer the event, which is tentatively booked for the 16th, 17th and 18th April 2021.

Over the coming week, we will be working out the details and sending you further information regarding the postponement and what we need you to do next.

Thanks for your support and understanding. We’re as disappointed as you are, but we know it’s going to be a great activity for the kids of Greater Western Sydney.

Regards,
Geoff Henderson

FEELING SAFE – Your Rights – A message for our youth

Everyone in Scouts, youth and adults alike have the right to feel safe and be protected from abuse.

No-one is allowed to threaten you, hurt you or touch you in a way that makes you feel uncomfortable, unsafe or afraid.

A Scout is respectful, and this applies to all interactions between all participants, youth and adults here at Scout Summer Fun Days

You do not have to deal with abuse on your own. If you feel unsafe, threatened or you see/hear something that causes you concern, please speak to a Leader or Rovers on an activity. Your concerns will be taken seriously. The information you provide will be shared with people who can support and protect you.

If you don’t know what to do – speak to someone at Scouts Summer Fun Days HQ. If for any reason, you do not feel the concerns of this nature which you raised at Scout Summer Fun Days have been satisfactorily dealt with, please report your concerns directly to the Child Protection Team at the NSW State Office on Tel: 02 9735 9000 or via ChildProtection@nsw.scouts.com.au or your parents.
