Welcome to the 1st Islington (Acorns) Scout Group

We’re a friendly Scout group who meet on Tuesday evenings in the Crypt under St. James Church just off Clerkenwell Green. We have three sections within our group; Beavers (6 – 8 years), Cubs (8 to 10½ years) and Scouts (10½ to 14). We welcome boys and girls, of any faith. For more details of what we get up to either click on the sections or visit our events calendar.

Join the Adventure!

All three of our sections are running close to capacity but there are always Young People moving up to the next stage of their Scouting Adventure so if you’d like to join us please get in touch. You might not be able to start straight away but we should be able to find a place for you fairly soon. If you’d like to find out more either come along on a Tuesday evening (for directions click here) or contact us.

What do we do?

Scouting provides a flexible, fun and adventurous programme. You can get a great idea of what Scouting is all about on the Scout Associations YouTube channel. To find out more about what we’re up to take a look at our events calendar or visit the individual section pages. We’ve just finished a busy and exciting summer term and are looking forward to starting back after the holidays.
