Scouts Registration 2016-17
We’re back after the Summer break and ready for another year of Scouting. To get the year started, we will be having our registration evening next Monday. Details are:
Date: Mon Sep 12
Place: Scout Den upstairs at Claregalway Community Centre.
Please complete the Registration Form and Activities Consent Forms and bring these with you on the night.
Registration costs for this year are €90 for a single member, €160 for 2 family members or €240 for 3 family members
All existing members form last year that wish to continue need to be registered again for this year.
As there is a waiting list for most sections, you need to have previously submitted a waiting list form to be included on the list. At this time of year, we review the list and invite new members to register. You will be contacted by the relevant Section leader or the overall Group Leader if a place has become available.
For those considering joining (or adding a name to the list), it is important to understand that Scouting aims to support young people in their physical, mental and spiritual development with a strong focus on the outdoors. This means that all sections will have many outdoor activities during the year such as hikes, water activities, backwoods, camping and more. As we live in Ireland, we do these in all kinds of weather conditions!
Claregalway Scouts have been invited to take part in a parish Youth Mass on Nov 14 at 7.30pm. Attendance is completely voluntary and members in all sections are invited.
Members attending are asked to come in uniform and we plan to sit together. Please respond to section leader to let them know if you plan to attend.
New members or those moving up to a new section may need to get a new uniform. At each age level, there are some second-hand uniforms (mainly Beaver & Cub jumpers) available. If you are interested in one of these, please get in touch with the section leader (Marc/Anna).
If you would like to get a new uniform, you can buy online from the Scout Shop (http://www.thescoutshop.ie/).
The shop visits various parts of the country too and will be in Galway tomorrow Saturday, Oct 31. It will be at Renmore Scout Den (map below) from 12-2pm.
Here are some photos & videos from recent Scouting events.

So, please complete these forms for each child that you wish to register with a section:
