The who, what & when!
Scouts is the third section within our group, for young people aged between 10½ and 14. We meet on a Tuesday, between 7pm and 8.30pm and do a wide range of activities! Like all sections in Scouting we wear a uniform – Scouts have a turquoise shirt, blue trousers and a red scarf. Within the Troop we are split into three patrols, each with a Patrol Leader (PL) and Assistant Patrol Leader (APL).

The activities we do vary widely! We do things like games, computing, crate stacking, camping, hiking, learning about the world, cooking, pioneering, knots, high ropes, international camping, assault courses, learning about religions, acting and drama, go-karting and swimming to mention just a few! The PLs, APLs and Leaders form the Patrol Leaders Council (PLC) which gives us a big say in how the troop is run and so we get to choose what activities we would like to do (with a bit of guidance!)

Want to join?
If you’d like to join (or a parent of somebody who would) then please contact us or drop by on a Tuesday evening. You may also want to take a look at our welcome pack which has more information about joining the Troop. You can find our welcome pack by clicking here.
If you don’t live around Clerkenwell, Finsbury or Islington you’re still more than welcome but there may be an Cub Pack nearer. Visit www.scouts.org.uk/join to be put in touch with your local groups. There is some flexibility in the age groups so if you’re 10 we can take you, if you’re nearly 14 then Explorers may be better.
Want to help out?
We’re also always on the look out for new leaders and people to help out with the group, and at the moment, particularly in the Scout section where we need an assistant leader. If you fancy being a leader or regular volunteer visit the Volunteering Page for more details. If you want to help more informally, come along to teach a skill, give us an idea for an evening or anything else then please Email us
