Activities, trips and making friends are all part of what makes it so much fun for girls and boys to be Beavers. As well as earning activity badges, many Beavers Scouts get to go on camps and sleepovers, often for the first time. Beaver Scouts like:

  • Being creative – making things, singing and playing games
  • Going on visits and investigating nature
  • Learning about themselves and getting to know other people
  • Discovering the worlds of science, nature and technology
  • Exploring the natural and manmade world
  • Caring and responding to the needs of others
Cub Scouts enjoy new adventures while making new friends along the way. Their commitment is recognised by over thirty activity badges. As well as regular weekly meeting, Cub Scouts also enjoy activity days, weekend camps and pack holidays. Boys and girls:

  • Go camping and explore the outdoors
  • Play games
  • Try adventurous activities such as climbing, sailing and archery
  • Meet people from their local community and experience the culture of other countries
  • Keep themselves and others safe



What don’t Scouts do? At this age, we encourage girls and boys to take responsibility for themselves and each other, with older members leading a small team. They like being with friends and participating fully in the adventure of life. In the Troop Scouts:

  • Develop their leadership potential and learn survival skills
  • Learn emergency aid
  • Cook, both at home and at camp and spend nights away – the summer camp is often the highlight of the year
  • Help others in the community
  • Adventurous and sporting activities – anything from abseiling to zorbing
Let’s face it, by the age of 14, most young people know what they want. Explorer Scouts therefore have a big say in what they do, while being supported by adult volunteers. Unit members:
