If you think Scouting’s just about knots, woggles and big shorts, then be prepared to be surprised. It’s how Richard Branson, Barack Obama and David Beckham got their start in life and you can benefit too.
There are 450,000 young people in Scouting, spread across five sections: Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts, Explorer Scouts and the Scout Network. Each section has its own balanced programme of activities, badges and awards.
Our group has three main sections: beavers, cubs and scouts.
We feed scouts into the local explorer unit when they are 14 years old. We also have opportunities for 14 to 18 year olds to help as young leaders in the sections of the group.

Beaver Scouts are our youngest members. They meet weekly to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities.
They will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It may be the first time they spend a night away from home so it’s a real adventure for them.
Beavers currently meet on a Tuesday Night between 5.45pm and 7.15pm at the Stocksbridge Scout Centre on Nanny Hill.
Current Leaders are Phil and Sharon
A Cub Scout Pack can have up to 36 Cub Scouts and is split into smaller groups called Sixes. Cubs take part in a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and challenging. A Cub Scout meeting consists of games and activities with plenty of time spent outdoors.
Camps and holidays are some of the most memorable events of the year for Cubs.
Cubs currently meet on a Thursday evening between 6.15pm and 8pm at the Stocksbridge Scout Centre on Nanny Hill.
Leaders are Sabrina and Michael.
Each Scout Troop consists of small units of six to eight Scouts called a Patrol, usually led by a Patrol Leader. Outdoor activities feature prominently, with the highlight being camping. Throughout the year, Scouts learn various skills, such as map reading, camp cooking and first aid in preparation for camp.
Rock climbing, potholing, gliding, photography and international experiences are just some of the things they get up to.
Scouts currently meet on a Thursday evening between 7.30pm and 9pm at the Stocksbridge Scout Centre on Nanny Hill.
Leaders are Lisa, Matt, Paul and Nick.
