We’ve started opening a new provision for four to six year olds called Squirrels, to help young people gain skills for life at a time when it matters most and where it’s most needed.

Meet on Mondays 4.00 – 5.00pm in the Scout Hut

Squirrels gather as a ‘Drey’ to grow and learn their way through lots of different activities.  A programme of activities during the 1 hour sessions help them take their first steps into being part of Scouting.

Sessions are packed with outdoor activities, fun, games, laughter and more to help our youngest members learn skills for life.

Even at this young age, Squirrels can work towards Activity Badges and Awards.

When you join Squirrels, you’ll be introduced to lots of new activities, people and things. Here’s everything you need to know.
