1st Wootton Bassett Scouts has active sections for Beavers, Cubs, and Scouts; we have three Beaver Colonies, two Cub Packs, and two Scout Troops. For more information about any of our sections, please contact us.
We have Beaver Colonies meeting in both Wootton Bassett and Brinkworth. It is the youngest section in Scouting and accepts children aged six to eight years.
The aim of Beavers is simply to have fun, all the activities are aimed at promoting teamwork, helping others, learning new skills and having fun!
Cubs are aged eight to ten and a half. Both our Cub Packs offer the children an opportunity to go camping at least once a year. Cubs continues to build on the successes and skills learned at Beavers, and teaches the children new skills whilst developing from skills learned in Beavers.
Scouts, probably our biggest and most active section offers a wide range of activities ranging from Kayaking in the summer months, to Caving in the winter months. We offer several camps, and hikes throughout the year. Children in this section are aged between ten and a half to fourteen.
Explorer Scouts are not part of 1st Wootton Bassett Scout Group but is run by the local District, in our case this is Swindon Ridgeway.
Explorer’s are aged between fourteen and a maximum age of 18. For information about Explorers in Wootton Bassett please visit, wbexplorerscouts.moonfruit.com.
