All our Cubs and Scouts attended the annual Fantastic Race in 2023, where they had to race around Melbourne and navigate to checkpoints. At each checkpoint they had to compete in a challenge for points. Cubs are aided by Leaders and parents. But Scouts had to complete the day on their own!
Listen to the Conversation Hour on ABC Radio Melbourne – 28 July 2023
Subjects covered include World Scout Jamboree in a few days in South Korea, child safety in Scouting and hear from Scouts, Leaders, parents and the chief executive of Scouts Victoria Jon McGregor.
10th Caulfield Scout Group in is on the lookout for new leaders for their Cub Scout section (children aged 8 to 11). This volunteer position would be ideal for someone looking to add youth leadership to their CV.
Scouting provides young people with essential life skills, from problem solving, outdoor skills to leadership opportunities. As a leader you would be supported by our existing leaders and parent helpers, supplemented by Scouts Victoria’s extensive e-Learning platform. We give you room to grow with face-to-face courses run by Scouts Victoria to further expand your skills.
What are we looking for in you? History with the Scouting movement would be ideal, but enthusiasm and a desire to see young people thrive is paramount. Make contact and we’ll have a chat.
We are looking to onboard new leaders starting mid-June 2022.
If you know someone, or want to know more:

So wonderful to be back in the hall again. Cubs settled in for a night of fun. We started the night with the investiture of Max Pohl. We welcome Max and his family into the 10th Caulfield community. Max’s dad Darion is a former Scout with 13th Camberwell and had Robert Hain as a leader. Robert is still very much involved in Scouting as our Venturer leader.
So very good to have people with Scouting background think well of Scouting to then bring their children in for the next generation.

We’d like to welcome Gabriella Goldman (AKA Gigi) to our group. Gigi has completed her 6 weeks as a new chum and was invested on Tuesday. Gigi was joined by her family which included an existing 10th Caulfield family, the Bajayos. Gigi’s 1st cousin Sascha was present to also help invest Gigi. Sascha is a huge inspiration to her (in height and achievement!) as Sascha just recently attained the Australian Scout Medallion (ASM) and will soon be moving on the Venturers.
We are super pleased to have both these families in our community and we look forward to Gigi’s Scouting achievements.
On Tuesday, September 11th 2018, Scouts Australia dignitaries from District and State level will be at the scout hall in Miller Street, Elsternwick to present the coveted badge to Ava Boulton-Webb.
The Grey Wolf Award is the pinnacle of the Cub Scout Section and one that only a 6% of Cubs attain in Victoria.
It is no surprise Ava has reached her ultimate goal. Last year she was awarded ‘2017 Cub Scout of the Year’.
There are a number of requirements involved in earning this big achievement. Ava had to complete merit badges covering safety, outdoors, health and fitness and scouting traditions. She also had to attend pack council meetings, an overnight camp and plan and lead a 2-hour bushwalk entirely on her own.
It has been a tremendous year for 10th Caulfield Cub Scouts, with yet another Cub receiving her Grey Wolf award – the highest individual award in Cub Scouts, which is open to boys and girls aged 8 to 10.
This continues a strong tradition of 10th Caulfield Cub Scouts achieving their Grey Wolf badge, with 3 more cubs over the past 3 years.
Ava Boulton-Web, aged 10 and in year 5 at The King David School, joined cubs in 2017. She has totally enjoyed her time in Cubs, from the badgework, to the fun outings, teamwork and camping. She plans on moving up to Scouts very soon.

Scouts and Cubs combined at the beach this week to take advantage of summer daylight savings. Sascha and Jess ran a fun program at Elwood beach that got everyone working in Patrols. Scouts helped Cubs with lashings and other knots and from what I could see everyone had a great (albeit windswept) night!
I’d like to welcome Daniel and Hugo to the fold. Both boys knew their Scout Law and Promise and said they would live by those gold standards. So they received their badges, scarves, caps and after an almighty WOOOF they joined their new Six and the night began with learning all the basic Scout knots. An oldie but a goodie.
Two new Scouts joined our group last night. Leah and Jacob hadn’t attended Scouts before this term and loved it so much they were invested last night. We welcome both into our group as we do to their respective families. Both families have ties back to scouting. Jacob’s grandmother was a Guide leader in our very hall, and Leah’s stepdad Jason was a Scout in the Doncaster region back when your GL was a Scout.
We also had the going-up ceremony for Jay and Mark who leave Cubs and now start in Scouts. Akela wished them farewell as they left Cubs on the next stage of their Scouting life.
Cuboree 2017 was a roaring success. 7 of our cubs went along for four days of glorious fun. I want to thank our Cub leaders, Akela, Bagheera and Baloo and our parent helper Dion Cohen for all they did to make sure our cubs had a blast at Cuboree. A big thank you to John Syer of 9th Caulfield for taking on the role of Pack Leader for Pack 118 as well as the other leaders and parent helpers for Pack 118.
Here are some choice snaps from the event….
Last week the cubs slept over at the hall. They made their own pizzas from English muffins, watched a movie and just had a great fun night together. Thanks to Akela, Baloo and Hathi for organising the night and to Kieran the Cub Leader from Bailey Reserve for coming at the last minute to help our leaders.
Our Scouts and leaders attended the District ARAP on Wednesday. This is an annual meeting where we get to here how Scouting is going in our district which covers Glen Eira and Stonnington council areas, roughly. We picked up an runner-up award for most active Scout group for 2017! Awesome! I was super proud to hear our senior Scouts jump up in front of everyone and speak clearly and confidently about all the great things they have done this year in Scouts. Thanks to Jessica, Sascha and Dara for preparing your speech and executing it with such polish. And a special mention goes to Sascha who actually made time to come down even though it was his BIRTHDAY. Happy Birthday Sash!
Last night Amelie and Indy achieved their Bronze Boomerang! This is the first of three levels of achievement in the Award system in Cubs. These Cubs had to complete 10 sections to achieve this award. So a BIG congratulations and mazel tov, and we now await you both moving on to silver and then gold. As you can see from the photo the cubs received a resounding WOOOOF from the pack for their achievement.
