It’s a great way to have fun, make friends, get outdoors, express your creativity and experience the wider world.
Each year, at the start of the summer holidays, we run a week-long camp.
Here are a few pictures from this year's Summer Camp in the New Forest.
Fun & friendship for 6 and 7 year olds
Beaver Scouts are our youngest members. They meet weekly, on Wednesdays, 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.
Fun & Challenge for 8 to 10 year olds.
Cubs is the second section of the Scouting family, between Beavers and Scouts. A Cub Pack consists of up to 36 young people organised into Sixes, with each Six named after a colour, and a Sixer and a Seconder in charge.
