The 1st Flintham Scout Group run four age group sections
Beaver Scouts are our youngest members. They meet weekly during school term time on a Tuesday to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities.
They 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.
Cubs meet on a Monday night during school term time and 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 adventure trips are some of the most memorable events of the year for Cubs.
Scouts meet every two weeks on a Wednesday. Outdoor activities feature prominently, with the highlight being camping and hiking. Throughout the year, Scouts learn various skills, such as map reading, camp cooking and first aid in preparation for camp.
Rock climbing, canoeing and international experiences are just some of the things they get up to.
Explorers meet weekly on a Tuesday evening. The DofE Award is a key part of the Explorer programme.
Explorer Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities including traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking, first aid, as well as a wider spectrum of adventurous activities.
