The First Narellan Scout Group has around 100 youth members and 11 Leaders as well as the Group Committee and some very dedicated parent helpers thrown in too.

As a group, we are very active with a lot of emphasis on getting out, getting a bit grubby and/or wet but always with the Scouting philosophy of teaching Responsible Risk Taking.

There is enough scary stuff in the world today, but we use the outdoors and nature to teach young people aged 6 to 17 how to assess risks and plan around them to still have some fun while learning valuable life skills.

About 1st Narellan

1st Narellan was formed in 1964 and originally met in the hall at St Thomas Chapel on Wilson Cresent.

In the late 1960’s  the hall we meet in was owned by and donated by the miners of Nattai Mines (west along Buragorang Road) when they changed the mine head location. The hall was relocated to the present location and opened in April 1970 as the official Head Quarters of the 1st Narellan Scout Group.


About Scouting

Scouting has been around as an organisation since 1907.

Starting in England, groups of boys and girls would use a collection of articles written by Lord Robert Baden Powell titled “Scouting for Boys” to learn about woods craft, living outdoors and self reliance.

There are 4 sections in Scouts for youth aged 6 to 17 years old and 1st Narellan group has all 4 sections. These are:

Joey Scouts for 6 and 7 year olds

Cub Scouts for 8 to 10 year olds

Scouts for 11 to 14 year olds and

Venturer Scouts for 15 to 17 year olds.

The Adventure doesn’t stop at 18 – you can become a leader and/or a Rover Scout at 18.
