The group has three main sections and the Headquarters also hosts one of the District’s Explorer Scout Units. More details about each Section can be found below.
Beaver Scouts are the youngest section in The Scout Association and are aged 6 –8 years old. The Beaver Scouts meet in Colonies of between 12 -24.
Beaver Scouts have lots of fun doing different activities which include making things, going on visits, making friends, doing badges and going away for a night on a sleepover
Cub Scouts are Boys and Girls aged 8 to 10. They meet in a Cub Pack and have lots of fun. At Cubs you can try lots of fun activities like Camping, going on trips and making things. If you like having lots of fun and adventure with your friends, then cubs will be for you.
The Scout Section is for young people, usually aged between 10 and 14 years. The Scout Troop is the third and final Section in the Scout Group.
As a Scout you can take part in a wide range of activities as part of your programme, and there are a number of Challenge Awards and Activity Badges to earn along the way. Scouts is all about finding out about the world we live in, knowing your own abilities, keeping fit for life and developing creative talents. It’s also important to explore your own values and personal attitudes.
Being outdoors is important and there are many opportunities to learn the traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking as well as the wide range of adventurous activities, like hiking and canoeing
Scouting is about being with friends, as part of a team, participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life.
Explorer Scouts are aged 14-18 and are not directly part of the Group. But Silverdale hosts one of the District’s Units - Phoenix Explorers.
As an Explorer Scout, you will be able to decide, along with the rest of the Unit, what you want to do - whether it is socialising, hiking or camping. There are opportunities to have fun and try new activities.
Some Explorers of our Explorers work on the Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards and you can also help as a Young Leaders with the other sections.
