Scouts at 1st Braughing

Build confidence, resilience and a sense of adventure

Our Scout Troop welcomes girls and boys aged 10 ½ to 14; many of whom started as Beavers before moving up to Cubs and then Scouts. Most Scouts move up from our two Cub Packs, although if you are new to Scouting you can still join us. To check for availability, please go to the join page and send us your details.

Our Section has over 25 Scouts which attend each week. They meet on a Wednesday eve in Braughing.

All young people part of 1st Braughing are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme, including traditional Scouting skills such as camping, survival and cooking, as well as a wider spectrum of adventurous activities.

Scouts aims to build and develop young people’s confidence, sense of adventure and outdoor skills, as well as encouraging them to explore their beliefs and attitudes and be creative. It offers them the independence to put these skills into practice at camps and trips away. There are a number of challenges awards and activity badges that Scouts can gain during their time in the section to recognise their achievements.

Being outdoors is important and much of the programme is given over to taking part in both the traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking as well as the wide range of adventurous activities, anything from abseiling to hikes and camping.

Scouting is about being with friends, as part of a team, participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life.

“Scouting has given me a fantastic opportunity to do lots of activities and things that people who are not in Scouts don’t get to do. It’s also about having fun with good friends”.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
Bear Grylls, Chief Scout Bear Grylls
