Finals Here We Come!

Proving that our Scout Group really does punch above its weight we have been selected for the Wellington Airport Regional Community Award Finals! This is fantastic, and is in itself a great reward for all our committee, leaders and of course our youth, without whom there is no Scouts at all!

Let's hear it for all the Keas, Cubs, Air Cubs, Scouts, Air Scouts and Venturers! BRAVO and a very big well done.

To join the adventure, get in touch with us here and get stuck into having fun on the land, in the sea or flying high, Scouts NZ has it all.

Air Scouts Take Off


scout with thumbs upWhat a crazy couple of terms Waikanae Air Scouts have had! Since their first meeting in October 2017 they have done so much.  A small selection is helping with community drives, hiking, camping, staying out in the wilds of the Tararuas, riding bikes, and of course, learning heaps about aviation. What else have they been doing? Oh yes, having heaps of FUN!

On Sunday they finally took to the skies in a state-of-the-art glider with Gliding Manawatu, who kindly allowed us to totally take over their airfield for the day. Seventeen Air Scouts and six leaders took off in style and many took the opportunity to take the controls for achild in glider looking happy. time whilst in the air. Everyone had a positive experience of non-powered flight.

We’ve got some pictures here, (doesn’t the look on their faces say it all?!) but for more check out their Facebook group.


If you know a young person aged 11 – 14 who’s keen on Aviation, be sure to give them a call on 0223074553 or complete our contact form here.

The Wonderful Waikanae Show!

Raffle winner.

Our Air Scouts were out and about at the Waikanae Show this weekend, and one of their number was determined to complete fundraising for the forthcoming National Scout Aviation School in April.

Amelia spent the entire show selling raffle tickets to a meat raffle.  She was lucky enough to have had the prize donated from a local family. She sold, sold, sold all day and is well on her way to the National School!

The raffle was drawn by Beach FM’s Corrin Crisp, and the lucky winner was red 39 which was Leticia Armstrong from Paraparaumu.  Air Scout leader Kitty and Amelia delivered the prize to a delighted Leticia that afternoon.

Thanks to everyone at the Waikanae Show and our awesome community for all your support.
