Squirrels

What if there was a place where adventures never end?

Jump into Squirrels, the latest chapter in our Scouts story. A place where 4 and 5 year olds can join in the fun for the very first time.

Every week, Squirrels will gather to grow and learn their way through lots of different games and activities.

Squirrels can achieve anything they set their minds to – and they have lots of fun along the way.

The one hour sessions are a brilliant opportunity for young people to take their first step into being part of Scouts, and they’ll help everyone get ready for the adventure of school too.

Sessions are packed with outdoors activities, fun, games, badges, laughter, and so much more to help our youngest members learn the skills they need for life. Of course, none of it would be possible without the support of the amazing leaders who plan and deliver such an inspiring programme.

Seeking bright eyed and bushy tailed new recruits

We’re looking for volunteers to help run our new Squirrel dray.
