About Gumdale Scout Group

Gumdale Scout Group commenced operation on the 23rd February 2007 and is one of the strongest Groups in Queensland.  The Group prides itself on being a 'child focussed' Group.  This includes ensuring that we have the necessary resources (physical, financial and human) available so our amazing Leaders can provide the best programs possible.

For almost 40 weeks of the year our Leaders, who are all volunteers, put together weekly programs that are run out of the hall or in the local Gumdale/Ransome area.

The success of Gumdale Scout Group has come from the support of the parents and it is critical to anyone that becomes part of Gumdale that they understand that our Group expects all members of each family help our Group in some way.  If your child is joining Gumdale then so are you!  With that in mind expect to be asked to take on a role at the Group.


We meet weekly at the Hemmant Scout Hall -  44 Doughboy Pde, Hemmant

Cubs - Tuesday 6:00pm-7:30pm

All sections have several Assistant Leaders and Adult Helpers, but we are constantly looking for new people to join up and help out. We also ask that parents stay behind to help support our leaders to ensure that we are giving your children the best possible experience.        


All Leaders at Gumdale Scout Group are VOLUNTEERS, giving up their time and energy so that the youth members of the group enjoy exciting programs and activities.

Signing In and Out

As part of our risk management procedures we require all youth members are signed in and out via the QR code provided on each night. This is located on the table just inside the door of the hall or if we are off site one of our leaders will have it.  This is compulsory and we ask that all parents/guardians ensure that this is happening. 

The car park at the hall can get extremely busy and to help minimise risk to all please ensure you accompany your son/daughter into and from the hall.
