1st Matchborough Scouts


1st Matchborough Scouts take part in a wide range of activities and adventure as part of their programme, challenging them to stretch themselves, try new things and discover their potential.


There are many awards and badges that Scouts can work towards, completing activities and challenges to get the Chief Scout's Gold Award.


Being outdoors is really important to our Scouts and they love to learn new skills, such as camping, survival and cooking as well as the wide range of adventurous activities, including archery, abseiling and canoeing. Scouting is about friends, as being part of a team and taking part in the adventure and opportunities of life.

All the adults your child will come in contact with during his/her time in Scouting has been through a formal vetting process to ensure their suitability to work with young people. The leaders take part in a comprehensive training programme including First Aid Training.


Whilst we try to keep the cost to a minimum (all leaders are volunteers) there is a weekly membership subscription, with the current subscription for Scouts at £3 per night.
