Scouts

Click here for our events calendar

Our Scouts are aged between roughly 10 1/2 and 14, and meet every Friday at Alveston Youth Centre from 7 - 9pm during term time. Our Scouts have some very big ideas and opinions are quite happy making sure that everyone knows about them!

The Scouts programme is an even bigger step up from that offered at Cubs. The Scouts themselves will have a lot of control over the scope and kind of activities that form the programme, and will also be responsible for running certain parts of the programme for themselves. They will develop skills and knowledge first introduced during Beavers and Cubs, as well as discovering new things and ideas.

Scouts uniform consists of a green shirt, which can be purchased from Initially Yours or Scouts Shops.

New Scouts will be given badges to go on their uniform, and our group scarf and woggle when they are invested into Scouts. Scouts moving up from Cubs will already have these badges and their scarf. Other activity badges are awarded after the Scouts complete parts of our programme, and these all count towards further challenge awards.

Once your child has joined, we can send you a link to let you view the upcoming programme and your child's progress towards earning badges

Our group is based on equal involvement of everyone, so we have rules in place to make sure everybody feels safe, but it also means that if there are any extra considerations that need to be made for any young person, we are able to accommodate everyone who wants to be part of 2nd Alveston Scout Group.

If your child would like to come and join us - Please click here to download the forms for new starters. Please note that we are currently operating a short waiting list system, so it is well worth registering your interest early, especially for Beavers. We will contact you when there is a space for your child and will guide you through what will happen next. You can get in touch with us by emailing hello@2ndalvestonscouts.org.uk. Any completed forms can either be emailed back to us, or handed in to one of our leaders at one of our programmed sessions.

All of our Leaders are fully DBSd and have received training in child safeguarding and 1st aid. We also have regular parent helpers who assist with the running of sessions, who are also fully DBSd. If you would like to get involved as an adult we have lots of fun as grown ups too, please let us know. We are always happy to have more adults involved as the more of us there are, the greater variety of activities we can offer the young people.
