Everything a scout does is an adventure. It’s a world of excitement, new interests and friends.m
CPASS Helang group is an extension of the Scouts CCA which provides a platform for self-development and self-discovery. Scouts will aim to learn and demonstrate knowledge of basic scouting skills and mark achievements in areas such as camp craft, fun activities, citizenship and improving the environment.
While we follow the progress and proficiency badge scheme, there will be various modifications and adaptations to instructions and environment to suit the needs of the special scouts. We aim to create a stimulating environment, which prepares boys and girls to face and solve problems through courage, teamwork and creativity. Scouts will be given opportunities to work as a team, exercise responsibility, serve others and even lead their peers.
Our scouts are given many opportunities to participate in activities, events and camps organised by CCA or extension scout community. With this exposure, we hope to develop our scouts into motivated, independent and adaptable individuals who are able to maintain harmonious relationship with others and be a contributing member of the society.
- Have a love for outdoor and nature activities
- Be medically fit with no major behavioural concern
- Have moderate to good hand function and able to follow and carry out instructions
Highlights in 2018
Some of the highlights of our Scouting activities in 2018 are:
Scouts Job Week
2 and 9 March 2018 in CPASS
Scouts from all over Singapore, including our Helang Scouts took part in this annual Job Week in March. They did chores like wiping tables, shredding unwanted papers, sweeping and mopping the floor in exchange for a token sum to raise funds. These opportunities helped to instil values of honest work and dignity of labour in them.

27 April 2018 at Kallang River
Track & Field, Swimming and Scouts CCA participated in a Dragon Boating Orientation Programme. During this collaboration, they got to know each other better and even challenged themselves to preserve when the rowing got tough, thus building up greater self-confidence.
