1st Hope Scout Group offers the scouting experience to young people aged 6 - 14 in our three sections: Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. We aim to provide fun and a sense of adventure in a safe and controlled environment.

We try to be outdoors as much as possible, and regularly practise traditional scouting skills, such as camping, firelighting, knotting and cooking. We provide regular challenges and all sections can earn a wide variety of badges which show the effort they have made. We play lots of games, of course. The aim is always to have fun.

We're always on the look-out for adult volunteers to help us expand the work we do. If you think you can help, or you have a young person who wants to join the Scout Movement, drop us a line and we'll be in touch.

You can keep up to date with what we're up to by reading our blog.
