Scouting provides activities for young people, aged 6 to 15, spread across five sections: Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts, Explorer Scouts and the Scout Network.
We are proud to run the lower three sections within our group and are also home to one of the District Explorer Scout units and the District Scout Network
Beaver Scouts are our youngest members. They meet on a Friday evening to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities.
Cubs take part in a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and challenging. Due to the high demand we have 2 Cub Packs. They meet on a Tuesday and Wednesday. Camps and holidays are some of the most memorable events of the year for Cubs.
Outdoor activities feature prominently in the scout section, with the highlight being camping. Throughout the year, Scouts learn various skills, such as map reading, camp cooking and first aid in preparation for camp. Our Scout Troop meets on a Friday evening.
Explorers are encouraged to lead themselves in deciding the programme and direction of the Unit, with support and guidance from leaders. The section also includes the Young Leaders Scheme, where young people are able to take on a leadership role in one of the younger sections.
Scout Network is the fifth and final section of the Scouting movement. Scout Network members take part in a variety of activities, which they undertake and organise themselves with the support of a Scout Network Leader.
