We are back!!!
We have resumed face to face activities for Beavers, Cubs and Scouts, in line with guidance from the national Scout association. We are back to meeting at Goddard Park school on our regular evenings or all sections. We are also keen to welcome new members for all our sections; Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. If you would like to join, please fill in our joining form on the website, or contact one of our section leaders.
What do we do?
For 19th Swindon Scout Group, adventure is at the heart of everything we do. It is the single most important thing that sets Scouts apart. We want to ensure that all young people, regardless of background, have the opportunity to take part in exciting and adventurous activities; master new skills; make new friends; and help others by making a difference. Our group is open to every young person; we have a friendly and welcoming ethos and go the extra mile to accommodate everyone.
We have a team of dedicated and experienced leaders who run sessions and events. The group holds weekly meetings during term time for each section at Goddard Park School, Swindon. Our catchment area focuses on the Lawns, Park North and Park South areas of Swindon, but in some cases we may extend further. Our group is a not-for-profit charity delivering the policies and values of the Scout Association.
We are always keen for new members. So why not come to one of our sessions and try it out for yourself?
We run three sections that are tailored for different age groups:
Aged 6 – 8
Beavers is for children aged between 6 and 8 years old. The section focuses upon a wide range of exciting activities, outdoors and indoors, games, badge work and trips. Making friends and having fun is what Beavers is all about! Beavers meet at Goddard Park School on Monday nights from 6-7:30 PM, during term time.
Aged 8 – 10 and a half
As the Cubs are older, the games and activities are bigger and more exciting! Cubs join in district scouting competitions and do a lot of outdoor activities. We also bring in people from the community to teach Cubs valuable life skills. Cubs meet at Goddard Park School on Tuesday nights from 6-7:30 PM, during term time.
Aged 10 and a half – 14
At Scouts, we introduce independence. We expect Scouts to be able to think and act for themselves, so entering competitions unaccompanied by a leader isn’t uncommon! Activities like Caving, Survival Camp and Overnight Hikes are exclusive to Scouts! Scouts meet at Goddard Park School on Friday nights from 6:30-8 PM, during term time.
