FAQs about Scouting

Can girls join Scouts?

Yes, everyone is able to join Scouts – girls included!

Do you have a waiting list?

We do have a waiting list for many of our sections but try and accommodate as many young people in our Group as possible. Please contact us and we’ll let you know the current scenario. We encourage parents to put their children on the waiting list for Beaver Scouts as early as possible. If you’ve moved into the area and were a Scout elsewhere we do out best to fit you in.

What is my child likely to do at the weekly meetings?

Each of our sections do a wide range of activities including craft work, learning new skills,playing games, local vists, ‘Scouting Skills’ and badgework. Each section has a number of programme zones (or themes), badges and challenge awards that help us provide a varied and exciting programme for each of our age groups. We like to call it #SkillsforLife.

We also encourage our members to help us plan their own programme
