Our Scout Troop, the newest in the town, is based at Christ Church in Ware. We meet on a Friday evening during school terms between 7:30pm and 9:30pm. Most Young People join Scouts between the ages of 10 and 11 and typically they have moved up from our own Cubs section. When they are approximately fourteen years old they then move up to Explorers. The Troop is open to both boys and girls of any religion and of any capabilities.
Being a Scout
When you join Scouts, you’ll be introduced to lots of new activities, people and things.
We started our Troop on 9th September 2013 with just five Scouts and have steadily grown since. Despite being the newest of the Scout Troops in Ware & District, we take part in all the District events, from church services and parades to Cooking competitions, bowls, hikes and camps. Our aim is to provide a balanced program of activities during a child’s time as a Scout.
Scouts start small but think big, always challenging themselves to do more and be more. It starts with an award. Who knows where it might lead?
All of our leaders are trained volunteers working to make Scouts the best it can be, but we don’t just need swashbuckling adventurers to lead our expeditions. We also need tidy-uppers and tea-makers and great listeners from all walks of life – for as much or as little time as they can spare.
