Over the years since my son joined 1st Abram, he has always enjoyed himself whether it’s been in the hut, on a trip, or camping. He has has met lots of people and made friends which have made him more outgoing and relaxed with other people. From his weekends away camping he has become more confident and become more of a leader. If your child likes to meet people, have fun, and loves the outside then scouting is definitely for them.Jennifer
Being a Scout
Being a Scout helps young people grow as individuals and helps them find new skills. Scouts take part in loads of fun and adventurous activities.
Activities and what you’ll get up to
Get an introduction to outdoor activities, have the opportunity to be creative, explore your local community and experience the excitement of a Beaver Scout sleepover with your friends.
Completing awards challenges you to do more, learn more and be more. See what’s on offer and start your journey to the top.
The Scouts promise is used by all sections from Scouts, upwards. It is even used by the leaders, when they join the movement.
Uniform and Badge Placement
You don’t need a uniform to join. But once you’ve settled in, you’ll start speedily earning badges, and you’ll need to know where to put them!
The Scouts’ uniform consists of a Teal Green coloured, long-sleeved shirt or blouse with a single breast pocket and button-down collar.
Moving up to Explorers
They say that all good things must come to an end, and Scouts is no different. When our young people reach the age of 14, they will start to look forward to joining Explorers, and taking their adventure to new heights, at 14 1/2.
Meeting Times & Days
Scouts normally meet on Wednesday Evenings
Camps and events timings will vary from event to event, but we’ll let you know those times well in advance. Our only ask is that you’re always prompt to pick up your child, this enables us to close everything down, leave site, and get back to unload before we can get back to our families.
