Welcome to 237th Scouts
Our Amazing History
Beaver Scouts are our youngest members. They meet weekly to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing, visits and good turns, 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.
We have two Beaver Colonies who meet on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
Our Cub Scout Packs take part in a wide range of activities designed to be fun, interesting and challenging. They try new things such as pioneering, cooking and ice skating and plenty of time is spent outdoors.
Camps and holidays are some of the most memorable events of the year for Cubs. We’ve even been to Disneyland Paris.
We have three Cub Packs who meet on Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings.
Each Scout Troop are “get out there and give it a go-ers” with a programme which develops teamwork, leadership and skills for life; such as map reading, camp cooking, first aid and DIY. Outdoor activities feature prominently, with the highlights of camps, expeditions and international experiences.
Rock climbing, caving, archery, photography and white water rafting are just some of the things they get up to.
We have three Scout Troops who meet on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings.
Explorers are encouraged to lead themselves in deciding the programme and directing 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.
There is wider scope for activities like offshore sailing, campaigning, performing, mountaineering and expeditions including being given the opportunity to gain their Duke of Edinburgh Awards.
We have two Explorer Units who meet on Monday and Tuesday evenings. They work together closely to deliver the more adventurous activities.
