Scouts are do-ers and giv-it-a-go-ers. Yes, we go camping, hiking, swimming, abseiling, cycling and canoeing. We also get to hang out with our friends every week; having fun, playing games, working in a team and taking on new challengers.
Every week we give almost half a million 6-14 years ols the skills they need for school, college, university, the job interview, the important speech, the tricky challenge and the big dreams, the skills they need for life.
Everyone’s welcome here. All genders, races and backgrounds. Regardless of your child’s physical ability – there’s a adventure out there waiting for them. And we’ll help them find it.
We meet every Wednesday (during tern times).
