Our Scout Troop (10 ½ – 14 years old) meets on Tuesday evenings from 7pm-9pm. The Scouts subs are £3.00. Sometimes we’re in the Scout HQ playing games, cooking, improving our woodland skills and generally preparing for the next camp, sometimes we’re camping, climbing, visiting, exploring, building,(night) hiking, cooking, making fires etc etc etc……
A little older we have an Explorers Unit (14-18 years old) who also meet on Tuesdays in parallel with the Scouts (7pm-9pm), but have a different programme, including the DofE (Duke of Edinburgh) and Queen Scout award (which is tougher than the DofE I bet you didn’t know that!!!). Click here to visit their site. Their subs is also £3.00 per night plus a £38.00 yearly membership fee.
On Tuesday we have both a Beaver Colony (6-8 years old) these meet between 5.30pm and 6.30pm and subs are £2.50 per child.
We also have a Cub Pack (8 – 10 ½ years old) this pack meets between 6.30pm to 8.00pm also on Wednesday and subs are £3.00 per child
Both these groups do lots of craft activities so plenty of glue, sticky paper and glitter, although we do play a lot of noisy and exciting games and most importantly we get to camp too and start to learn our Scout skills early on.
In March 2017 we introduced an annual membership fee of £38.00 per member, but we will reduce the weekly subs by £1. Explorers who do not pay membership to ay other unit are expected to pay the membership fee to our unit)
