Volunteer

Interested in helping out?  Contact Tim or Tracy to discuss with no obligation.

Heany Park Scout Group is staffed entirely by volunteers.  There are a huge range of roles so no matter what your skills and the pattern of time you have available there is bound to be a way that you can help!

Volunteering is fun and very worthwhile.  Being involved with a Scout Group looks really good on a work or other cv and the adult team forms an excellent group of friends to socialize with both in and out of Scouts.  On top of all of this, adults in Scouting have loads of scope to join in the activities which the young people do, very often at no cost to the adult concerned, so if you like camping, climbing, hiking, kayaking or outdoor pursuits in general this could be a great opportunity for you!
