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 please visit each sections page.

Join the Adventure!

Due to a leader shortage, admissions to our Beaver section are currently suspended. We will provide further updates if this changes. Our other 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 by clicking here. You might not be able to start straight away but we should be able to find a place for you fairly soon. More details can be found on our Join Us page.

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 the individual section pages.
