Welcome to Keas

We know both you and your child will enjoy the benefits of Scouting at our Kea Club.   
Please feel free to talk to us should you have any queries on issues not covered here.

Keas is a programme of discovery for girls and boys in school years 1, 2 and 3.

The Keas have a promise, which they are encouraged to live by:

The Kea Promise
I share, I care, I discover, I grow

Keas learn to share through cooperation and team effort.  Their meetings include active and quiet games, stories, creative crafts, play acting and singing.

Through the varied activities of the Kea programme we try to help Keas to:
Share their belongings with others
Feel secure as a member of the club
Gain confidence in themselves through activities
Care for nature and the outdoors
Develop simple life skills
Progress to the Cub Section

What you can expect from Scouts

What Scouts expects of you
Please come into the Hall to drop off and pick up your child.  We appreciate it when you promptly collect your child.  Let your leader know if someone else will collect your child.
If your child is absent for any reason please call us.
Good behaviour is the joint responsibility of the child, parent and leaders.  Everyone is expected to cooperate, follow instructions, and trust people and property with respect.  Leaders use positive reinforcement and a reward system to encourage appropriate behaviour.

Scout facts
The generic term for members of all the sections is “SCOUTS”. Not all of our volunteers wear the uniform.  Many of our volunteers help because they’re parents of a current member.  Many were not Scouts when they were younger but have learned new skills and made new friends through Scouts.  Many of our adult volunteers say they are more confident inn their everyday lives as a result of their involvement with Scouts.  All our leaders are covered by comprehensive insurance whilst taking part in Scouts.

The Biggest Myth
…..groups are closing down through lack of youth wanting to become members.
Nothing could be further from the truth.  SCOUTS is growing. Adult helpers and Leaders are currently our limiting factor.  We just don’t have enough leaders to run the exciting adventure programmes we want to, with all the youth who want to join SCOUTS!
