We are based in Haydon Wick in our own Scout Hall and provide scouting for both Girls and Boys in the following age ranges:
Beavers (6 – 8)
Beaver Scouts are our youngest members and meets on a weekly basis (term time) on either Monday or Wednesday (we have two colonies) to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, visits, along with plenty of outdoor activities.
They will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It may be the first time they spend a night away from home so it’s a real adventure for them.
Cubs (8 - 10½)
Our Cub Scout Packs meets on a weekly basis (term time) on either Tuesday or Thursday (we have two packs) to take part in a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and challenging. A Cub Scout meeting consists of games and activities with plenty of time spent outdoors. Camps and holidays are some of the most memorable events of the year for Cubs.
Scouts (10½ – 14)
Our Scout Section meets all year round on a Friday evening and take part in crafts, games, hiking, camping, first aid, etc. During the summer the section is based at Bowmoor Sailing Club where the youngsters take part in water activities using our own extensive fleet of dinghies and kayaks. The section also takes part in local competitions between other scout troops including cooking, archery, activity hikes and rifles shooting. The youngsters also get the opportunity to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme
Explorers (14 – 18)
Our Explorer Unit meets all year round on a Friday evening and take part in adventurous activities such as helm an ocean going ship, visit Ireland, visit japan, climb mountains in the winter or summer (if you don’t like the cold), archery, shooting, hiking, sailing, kayaking, power boating - the list is endless.
During the summer when you are not involved in adventurous activities, the Unit is based at Bowmoor Sailing Club where you take part in water activities using our own extensive fleet of dinghies and kayaks.
You will also have opportunity to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme.
