Grey Wolf Award

Grey Wolf Criteria and Process

Advice as at March 2020 – in transition from “old system” to “new youth program”. Updated email advice July 2020

Whilst Social Distancing applies – check the post Peak Awards during COVID-19 period

o   Grey Wolf age range

  • A youth member can attain the peak award in their section if they fulfil all criteria
  • And are aged within the age criteria for their section – currently from age 8 until they turn 12
  • And are a current member of that section – ie they have not “Gone Up” to Scouts.

o   “Old Program” applicants -

  • Fill out Grey Wolf Application from Scouts NSW Website / State Forms – form F6 - https://www.nsw.scouts.com.au/members-services/state-forms/
  • Commencement Form no longer in use, not required
  • Pack Council/Unit Council to approve the application for award – enter the name of one or two members of the Unit Council that considered and approved the award
  • Form to be typed into, they will not accept handwritten
  • Email to address on the form – PeakAwards@nsw.scouts.com.au – please cc Region Commissioner Cub Scouts jan.mulheron@nsw.scouts.com.au
  • Once approved the cub will receive an email – using email address on Scoutlink, make sure it is current
  • I believe the Cub Leader will also receive an email
  • Cub Leader will receive certificate/badge/woggle ready for presentation – Cub Leader and Cub to work out details of presentation.
  • Grey Wolf Woggle will be phased out – when the current supply runs out there will be  no more woggles. They have been a special thing NSW has been presenting, not standard across the National Award Scheme.

o   “New Program” applications – please check your application process

Fee no longer attached to this award, no need for payment
