How to Join
We hope that you will love Pfadfinder as much as we do … a LOT!
To join Pfadfinder, we suggest you come along to meet us first and have some fun. Contact us to see where we will be this week. Most nights we are at the Scout Hall or the surrounding Haig Park, but some nights we are out and about on excursions.
To join up:
Step 1: Youth Application Form
After you’ve decided to join, then fill in an online Scouts ACT Youth Application form. From the list of scout groups, choose German Australian Pfadfinder.
Step 2: WWVP card for Parent(s) if you will be joining in the fun!
You’ll need to apply for a free Working With Vulnerable People card for any adults who will accompany your child sometimes on our camps, and be joining in the fun helping out on our parent roster. Your kids will love you for it!

Under ‘what regulated activity do you intend to engage in?’, tick clubs, associations and movements.
Step 3: Pay your Fees
Once you’ve done that, read up on the costs and involvement and then pay your fees.
Step 4: Join the Appropriate Mailing Lists
Make sure your email address has been added to the Pfadfinder email group. Ask your email@example.com to do this.
Step 5: Create an Operoo profile
Within a week, you should receive an email inviting you to create an Operoo profile for your child. Operoo is the software we use to send families info about our activities and gain parental permission. Operoo is how families provide their emergency contact details and child’s important health information to our leaders so that we can properly care for your child while they are with us.
Step 6: Spass, Spass, Spass!
After that first bit of paperwork is out of the way, we absolutely promise to keep the formalities to a bare minimum, and the fun cranked up to maximum!
Wir freuen uns Euch kennenzulernen! Bis bald!
