Online Scout Manager

At present there are 30 Scouts between the ages of 10 and 14, boys and girls and we meet on a Wednesday evening from 7pm to 9pm.

Scouting is the largest co-educational youth organisation in the world. It exists to help young people to grow up to be self-reliant, caring, responsible and committed.

Every term we take part in many exciting activities, games, team work, discussions and learn new skills.

Meetings

During the winter term we meet at Anderson Baptist Church, Amherst Road. During the summer term we meet at the Wokingham Waterside Centre and we provide opportunity to sail, canoe, kayak and row. Each year we take part in camping activities during the spring and summer months. Our main summer camp usually takes place during the first week of the school summer holidays. We invite all Scouts to get involved.

Uniform

The Scouts wear a Green Hoodie. We do bulk orders from our supplier to getting hold of one is done on an ad-hoc basis and will be explained upon joining.

Subs

The subs help pay for activities, insurance, refreshments and materials. All our leaders are volunteers. Subs are currently £45 a term. All payments are made via OSM. The new online scouting system.

Visiting

We invite you to visit and join in all the Scout activities to see if you wish to join us.

Parent Help

We include all of our parents on a rota to help out during the sessions. We find that it is a good way for us to provide support for the Scouts, get to know the parents and include them in the fun of Scouting.

All helpers need to be police checked before they can help so we ask your parents to complete a DBS Check. This will be explained upon joining.

Leaders and Helpers

There are a number of leaders at Scouts. The Scout Leader is Jack Smith. The assistant leader is Simon Bird. We also coordinate a large team of parents and helpers to ensure a good balanced programme. If parents would like to get involved we’d love to hear from you.
