1st Drysdale Scout Group was first established in 1959, when Drysdale, Victoria was just a small farming community at the north end of the Bellarine Peninsula.
In the more than 50 years since it was formed, 1st Drysdale has supported well over 1,000 children and their families – largely from Drysdale, Clifton Springs and nearby Curlewis.
1st Drysdale Scouts is a part of Scouts Victoria. We operate in the Geelong Peninsula district which is, in turn, part of the Geelong region of Scouts Victoria.
Under the Group Leadership of Wayne Simpson and the Cub and Scout leaders, 1st Drysdale operates a full, fun weekly program for the Cub Pack on Monday nights and the Scout Troop on Tuesday nights.
Scouts can then progress to the District Venturer Unit (14 – 17 years), which meets on Tuesday nights, and then to a number of Rover Crews (18 – 25 years) in the Geelong region.
