What is Scouting? FUN & ADVENTURE!
Scouting is a remarkable movement that brings amazing benefits and enjoyment to everyone involved – young people, leaders, parents and all involved with the running of our group.
Through adventure, we help our young people 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 week-long summer camps (for Cubs and above).
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.
Check out our Facebook Group to see what exciting things we’ve been doing recently.
Who is Scouting for? EVERYONE!
Our group runs Beavers (6-8yrs – Friday) and Cubs (8-10.5yrs – Friday) . We have “Young Leaders” (14-18yrs) and adult leaders (join the leaders). Some people think Scouts is just for boys – it’s not – we have loads of girls too!
What do young people think of Scouting? IT’S AWESOME!

How much does it cost? NOT MUCH!
It costs £36 per term, which covers weekly meetings, insurance, membership etc. Camps cost extra, and the cost depends on the activities – typically a weekend camp costs £30-£50 and a week long activity-packed summer camp on average costs £200.
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.
Our weekly meetings are in Hayward's Mead, Eton Wick, Windsor, our weekend camps are typically within 45 minutes from Windsor, and our week-long summer camps are generally within three hours of Windsor (transport provided)!
