GETTING outdoors and building confidence aren’t the only things children get from scouts, group leader Geoff Selton says.
The 2nd Glen Waverley Scout Group has openings across all age groups this year and is looking for new members.
Mr Selton said building friendships outside regular school groups was another benefit for children who got involved in the five scouting sections.
‘‘It’s all about having a good time,’’ Mr Selton said.
He said six-to-eight year olds went into joeys, eightto-10 year olds went into cubs, 10-to-14 year olds went into scouts, 14- to- 18 year olds went into venturers, and 18-to-25 year olds went into rovers.
Regular activities include learning to sail, hiking and camping.

WHILE some parents fret over their house-bound children, others are doing something about it.
They've volunteered with the Scouts and are getting outdoors. The kids? They love it.
Geoff Selton, from the 2nd Glen Waverley Scout Troop, started as a Cub.
He got back into it when his son turned eight, and now oversees activities for Joeys, Cubs, Scouts, Venturers and Rovers.
"It's a good way to stay involved with your kids," Mr Selton said.
He has noticed the impact of Scouts on his son.
"He was shy as can be (when he started)," Mr Selton said.
"But by year 12 he was vice-captain of his school."
