Sections

Scouting covers a wide age range and is separated into several Sections. Scouting starts from the age of 6 and young people can continue within Scouts all the way to the age of 25. The sections are split :

6 – 8 years old
Our youngest section learning to be part of a team and to make friends in a fun and exciting way.

At the group we have two active Beaver Colonies. One meets on Monday evening and the other on Tuesday evening, both from 5:30 – 6:45.


8-10 1/2 years old
Beavers move onto Cubs, learning more about each other and skills that may be with them for the rest of their lives.

At the group we also have two active Cub Packs. One meets on Tuesday evening and the other on Thursday evening, both from 7:00 – 8:30.


10 1/2 – 14 years old
Scouts continue with the foundations of Cubs, progressing to new skill levels and learning the importance of teamwork and leadership.

We have one Scout Troop that meets on Monday evening from 7:00 – 8:45.


14 – 18 years old
Once in Explorers planning and organisation become important skills as many activities may be organised by the young people as well as the section leaders. Explorers are organised on a District level and currently none of the Explorer Units meet at the 33rd HQ


18 – 25 years old
For those that want to carry on their activities along with others in a Scouting environment. This is where progression to gaining the Duke of Edinborough Gold Award and Queens Scout Award often take place. Many Scouts that attend University join their local Network to meet like minded individuals to carry on their Scouting.
