Scouts are waiting to hear from you

Are you looking for activities for your children? The 1st Beeston Scout Group has places available for boys and girls aged 6-14.

We do all sorts of activities from camping, crafts, games. All the activities we do are fun and go towards earning badges. All the leaders are qualified and CRB (DBS) checked. We help out with church activities which include summer fairs, St George’s day, Rememberance Parade.

We meet at St Andrew’s Church Hall, Cardinal Road.

Beaver Scouts (age 6-8) are the youngest members. They meet weekly on Wednesdays 6-7:30pm to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities.

Our Cub Scout (age 8-10½) Pack meets every Friday 6:15-7:45pm. It is split into smaller groups called Sixes. Cubs take part in a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and challenging. A Cub Scout meeting consists of games and activities with plenty of time spent outdoors.

1st Beeston Scout Troop (age 10½–14) meets on Fridays, 8-9:30pm. It consists of small units of six to eight Scouts called a Patrol, usually led by a Patrol Leader. Outdoor activities feature prominently, with the highlight being camping. Throughout the year, Scouts learn various skills, such as map reading, camp cooking and first aid in preparation for camp.

Rock climbing, potholing, gliding, photography and international experiences are just some of the things they get up to.
