New Ceremonies Guide

Finally, we are able to launch the new Ceremonies Guide for Australian Scouting!

Ceremonies help us mark important times in Scouting. We use a whole range of different ceremonies, and many of these will look different depending on where you are or who you’re with.

Ceremonies in Scouts Australia are adaptable and changeable. This book acts as a guide; it includes some key considerations for designing ceremonies, and some examples.

The features of your ceremonies and the way they’re run is mostly up to the youth members in your Unit, with adult support as needed.

This guide mirrors what is contained in the Program Handbook, along with additional guidance for adult ceremonies. If you already have the Program Handbook, you won’t need this as well, unless you would like a handy quick reference.

You can find the Guide to Ceremonies in Australian Scouting on the Weekly Program page, under the Ceremonies tab. Or click here.

Printed copies of this guide will also shortly be available from the Scout Shop.
