What is Scouting? ADVENTURE!
Scouting is a remarkable movement that brings amazing benefits and enjoyment to everyone involved – children, leaders, parents and everyone involved with the running of the group.
Through adventure, we help our scouts develop team-work skills, friendships, confidence, independence, responsibility and a ‘can do’ attitude to help prepare them for the wider world.
Everyone in our group takes part in many adventures & activities at weekly evening meetings, weekend activities in the term, and longer camps. In a typical year, we will go climbing, cycling, hiking, canoeing, abseiling, kayaking, swimming, fire-lighting, community visits, craft activities, raft building and many many more adventures.
Who is Scouting for? EVERYONE!
Our group currently runs Cubs for 8-10.5yr old children. Sessions are held 18:15 – 19:45 on Thursdays.
Some people think Scouts is just for boys – it’s not – we have loads of girls too!
What do cubs really think
What skills can we learn and put into practice
How much does it cost? NOT MUCH!
It costs £50 per term, which covers weekly meetings & insurance. Camps cost extra, and the cost depends on the activities
Who runs Scouting? VOLUNTEERS!
Everyone in our group is a volunteer, which is why we can provide such great value activities. All our leaders have undergone extensive training and criminal records checks, and when we provide “adventurous activities” we will either use externally qualified people, or our own leaders with appropriate qualifications.
Where are we? KIMBOLTON!
Our weekly meetings are in the Scout Hut behind the Mandeville Hall in Kimbolton
