Our Scouts have a varied programme that includes games, learning new skills, camping and pioneering, learning about our environment and how to live by the Scout promise. The past year has seen the Scouts cooking over open fires, visiting Brooklands museum, caving, archery, learning basic first aid and much much more.

Scout leaders

All of our leaders are trained volunteers working to make Scouts the best it can be, but we don’t just need swashbuckling adventurers to lead our expeditions. We also need tidy-uppers and tea-makers and great listeners from all walks of life – for as much or as little time as they can spare. If you wish to volunteer your help at Scouts (we are always looking for willing helpers!) please contact us using the form on the contact page.
