The Adventure Starts Here

“Who hath smelt woodsmoke at twilight? Who hath heard the birch-log burning? Who is quick to read the noises of the night? Let them follow with the others, for the young men's [and women's!] feet are turning to the camps of proved desire and known delight!"
- Rudyard Kipling

We need Adult Volunteers to keep the group running. No experience in Scouting is necessary! Training will be provided by Scouting Ireland and you’ll be working as part of a team with great supports from Scouting Ireland Support Teams.

Volunteering with the 17th Dalkey means you’ll not only be improving the lives of young people but enhancing your own also. The benefits of volunteering in Scouting include making friends, learning new skills, and helping our local community flourish. You’ll have the oppertunity to take part in local, national and international events. And you’ll help change younf people’s lives for the better.
