About Scouts at Scotch College
1st Hawthorn (Scotch College) Scout Group is a member of Scouts
Australia. Boys in the Scout Troop come from Year 6, 7, 8 and 9.
The troop meets on Thursday afternoons during the activities and
Boys in Years 7 and 8 take part in Scouts as an alternative to
a second night's sports training each week: choosing Scouts, however,
does not affect selection in school representative teams.
Boys in Year 9 participate in Scouts during the activities program on a Thursday
afternoon, however they are encouraged to also join Venturers
and take part in their activities, attending their Friday night meetings, hikes
Annual Camp in September is held at the Group's property at Elliott
Lodge, north of Healesville. Patrols compete for the Scotford Shield
campcraft trophy and participate in a wide range of activities.
Annual camp, together with the Troop Hike in April/May and the
December Patrol Leader training camp for Year 8 scouts, is a time-tabled
school activity and is compulsory. All other out-of-school hours
activities are voluntary, just as with any other Scout Troop.
As part of the Boroondara District, members of 1st Hawthorn participate
in a wide range of activities in the largest and most progressive
Scout District in Australia.
These include the annual Boroondara Challenge, the Boroondara Big
Bludge activity camp, the district internet wide game and Camberwell
Showtime, Australia's largest Scout/Guide stage revue.
The troop has access to the activities run on a state and national
basis. These include Jamborees - held every three years - and large-scale
