Welcome to 1st Longwick Scouts
We run Beavers, Cubs & Scouts. Adventure is at the heart of what we do.
Scouting helps our young people improve key skills including;
Social Skills, Teamwork, Leadership, Confidence
Our varied and exciting programmes offer hundreds of activities, from camping and hiking to surfing and paragliding. Scouting is a unique adventure that's full of surprises. Come in and see for yourself.
In an independent survey of over 2,000 parents of Scouts, nine out of ten parents said Scouting is worthwhile and nine in ten said their children find Scouting enjoyable.
As your child progresses through Scouts you should be able to see signs of the impact their Scouting adventure has on them.
Parents tell us Scouting gives their children more confidence, responsibility and a broader set of friends. Scouting can help develop your child’s social skills and encourage self-sufficiency, and gives them access to activities and opportunities that may have been otherwise unavailable to them. A huge number of parents agreed that since their child joined Scouting family life was easier and they were ‘nicer children to live with’.
News & Upcoming Events
The Scout Association is an inclusive and values-based Movement. Membership is open to young people and adults of all faiths and beliefs, including the absence of an affirmed faith, humanists or atheists, who share our values. Our values are integrity, respect, care, belief and cooperation.
Young people thrive in safe surroundings. We’re committed to ensuring that Scouting is both enjoyable and safe for everyone who takes part, along with providing parents with peace of mind.
All volunteers who help to run our activities give their time freely to help young people enjoy Scouting.
Leaders are interviewed locally and asked to provide references. Everyone working with young people in Scouting is asked to undertake a Criminal Record Check, sometimes known as a ‘police check’.
