Our Leaders

The Leaders are the lifeblood of our group – providing adult supervision and guidance at varying levels across all sections and the group in general.

1st Sailors Bay is fortunate to have many of leaders with lots of experience and skills in different areas, be it boating, sailing, climbing, cycling, hiking, camping, art and craft.  Our leaders include professionals, scientists, academics, tradespeople, accountants, doctors and small business owners, who bring to the group not only their love of adventure and the outdoors, but also their commitment to making a difference in young people’s lives.

It’s a really fun, rewarding thing to do with your kids, and for yourself. Actually Scouting is one of the few activities you can actually participate in with your children (not just supervise from afar). Some more information about being a leader can be found here – Why I Lead.
