The 18th Swindon Scouts Welcome You!

For the Swindon Old Town area

WHAT WE DO

The Swindon 18th is an active Scout group for 6 to 14

 year old boys and girls, including Beaver, Cub and Scout sections.

 

We offer young people adventurous opportunities to learn all sorts of valuable life skills through their involvement in weekly meetings, and a wide range of special activities and camps run throughout the year.

EVENTS

WEEKLY MEETINGS

Our regular meetings are held during term-time in the Scout Hall in Charlotte Mews, tailored especially for the different age groups. Each term we work to different Scout challenges, which are partly covered in the meetings and partly in other activities.

 

ACTIVITIES

Fun indoors and out... caving, sailing, hall hockey, archery, kayaking, chess, London monopoly run, hiking, air-rifle shooting, swimming, and much more....  Everything is run by qualified instructors, DBS approved of course.

FUND-RAISING

The Scouts is a charity run at a local level by volunteers, one of their jobs being to actively raise finances, supported by a fund-raising committee.


Beavers, Cubs and Scouts join in the fund-raising activities from helping to run stalls at fairs, cooking at BBQs, to sorting and delivering the Scout Christmas post.

COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES

The Scouts get involved with the local community, getting involved with local events, commemoration services, schools or with other community organisations.

CAMPS

Camping is a fantastic adventure and a great opportunity to learn independence.

 

Scouting camps are graduated, ranging from fully catered with lodgings e.g. for Beavers at PGL, to the Scout summer camps where Scouts have to do most everything themselves - such as cooking for the troop, or making their own bivouac - with appropriate supervision where necessary.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

As of 5th November we are no longer meeting face-to-face, but are continuing to meet online.

Please see the main Scout Website for more details. More for local parents on the Group facebook.
 

 

The Scouts award-winning training scheme for volunteers means that adults get as much from Scouts as young people
