Expectations of a 1st Standlake & Cokethorpe  Sea Scout.

  1. All Scouts are expected to attend St Georges Day Parade in Witney (always keep the afternoon of the nearest Sunday to 23rd April free).
  2. All Scouts are expected to attend the Remembrance Sunday service in Standlake or Northmoor (always keep the morning of the Sunday nearest to the 11th November free).
  3. We have a very high standard and ask that all Scouts turn up to all meetings looking smart and in the correct uniform (See Scoutbase for information on uniform). Scouts should bring scruffs (clothes to do activities in) to meetings.
  4. A high standard of good behaviour is expected at all times. It is advisable for Scouts to turn up ten minutes before the start time as it is important for us to start on time as we often have a tight programme.
  5. Scout Subs are £15 a month, and can be paid in several ways.
  6. At least one parent must attend the safety talk/AGM (this will always be held on the last Thursday of April).
  7. The Scout group likes and needs parental support, we really need help at least for one fundraising event a year and support and attendance at as many other fundraising events as possible. Fundraising means your child gets to use better equipment have more fun and do interesting activities and outings, Fund raising helps us offer camps and events are cheaper to all and sometimes free.
  8. Some parental support we need is during the summer water activities to help load canoes and put away sailing boats, kit etc after the session.
  9. Please let us know if you cannot attend Scouts. If a Scout misses three consecutive meetings without a good reason or without letting a leader know it will be presumed that he/she has left and the place will be offered to the next person on the waiting list.
  10. We want our scouts to enjoy themselves and have fun, but we will also expect discipline, whilst taking part in adventurous activities we need scouts to do as asked, immediately, it is important for everyone’s safety.
  11. Therefore: All Leaders and Instructors have the right to refuse to take a Scout out on an activity if it is felt that it is not safe to do so.
  12. Scouts are expected to have fun, take part in new and exciting activities, make new friends, learn life skills and have fun.
