Eighteen scouts have returned to the Cressy group for 2019, as the organisation looks to expand by adding a Cub Scouts troop.
Scouts are for boys and girls aged 10 to 15, and Cubs are for younger children aged 7 to 10.
The club was well-placed to add more members, assistant Scout leader Mark Dixon said, after their performance at the last big event for 2019, the Sir Ernest Clark Trophy.
"It was a really big achievement for our group - it's the best we've ever done," he said.
The Cressy Scouts achieved second place at the statewide competition, losing out to the Sandford troop.
One Cressy scout, Peter Dixon, was awarded the Australian Scout Medallion while at the competition - the highest award a scout can get.
The medallion was the result of the culmination of different activities he has completed and camps that he has been on since joining scouts in 2016, Mr Dixon said.
Cressy Patrol Leader Laura Winter said the Scouts were proud of all of their performances at the Sir Ernest Clark Trophy competition.
"It was a really challenging Clark Trophy this year," she said.
"And we attempted to achieve as much as we could in the time we had.
"We tried to practice as much as we could in the weeks before, and that seemed to have paid off.
"We had a lot of fun and we get on really well as a patrol."
The Sir Ernest Clark Trophy competition consists of patrols of Scouts from troops coming together each year to test themselves in their skills and proficiencies.
The event requires navigation and time management as well as the Scouts being able to camp, cook and look after themselves for the entire time without assistance.
As they navigate around the venue, they do a kind of two-day orienteering exercise.
The leaders are placed at various grid references where the Scouts are offered various problem-solving challenges that may range from history, culture, construction, first aid, bush craft, survival skills, and ropework.
Points are awarded for their skills in these areas as well as leadership, teamwork and their approach to the task.
There are no phones allowed, the Scouts use a combination of two-way radio, map, compass, log book and basic GPS to plan, communicate and record their activities.
Mr Dixon said the Scouts were always open to new members, and that those interested in the new Cub Scout troop should get in touch.
