What do scouts do?

We meet on a Tuesday evening from 7pm to 9pm at the 1st Shinfield Scout Headquarters.

Scout activities can vary, some nights are dedicated to a single theme or activity; this will depend on the badges we are working on and the events we are planning for or taking part in. A typical night might involve:

  • Flag break
  • Games
  • Main activity – skills or learning activity
  • Badge work
  • More games
  • Flag down

Scouts are at the age where they can experience the true adventure that scouting has to offer – from arts and crafts in the meeting place to jumping off cliffs, climbing, sailing, hiking, raft building and many more! We aim to give scouts a wide range of experiences so they can learn some new skills by accident along the way.
