With the beautiful weather we're having this half-term, why not spend an afternoon building your own campsite or fort and spend a night out in it?!

IKEA recently released a few how-to guides on building forts indoors and there is no reason why you can't take these outside.

If you do build and sleep in an IKEA or self-build, send a photo to your Section Leader (via your section's Facebook Group or email) and they'll award a nights away badge!

Well that's it - 110 years of History covered in 11 days. Hopefully you've enjoyed our coverage and had a little bit of nostalgia!
If you missed any posts, they are all available on our Page and soon in a single collection.

First off, a HUGE thank you to every single person that has ever been a part of or involved with 1st St Neots Scout Group. Your skills, experiences, time, effort, smiles and laughter are what have made the last 110 years so successful!
It's difficult to know exactly but we believe that our Group has positively impacted the lives of thousands of young people and adults since we started.

Last week, we shared a video from one of our Scouts, Billy, who wished us a Happy Birthday. His follow-on words are still so meaningful - "Thanks to all the Leaders and Volunteers and here's to the next 110 years".

What will we look like over the next 110 years?
Who knows? is the simple answer but the future is ours to shape. We'll continue being awesome and we'll start to have a larger impact as the size of the town continues to increase. There will be even more camps, events, memories and skills learnt by even more young people.

Keep an eye out on this page for any upcoming events as we look to continue our birthday celebrations through to next May. We look forward to inviting lots of members, old and new, to join us.

Who we are

We are the 1st St Neots Scout Group, part of the UK’s largest youth organisation.

We change lives by offering 6 to 14 year-olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences and skills for life. We are also partnered with an Explorer Scout Unit that covers 14-18 year-olds.

Scouts help children and young adults reach their full potential. We help young people to get jobs, save lives and even change the world.

                                                                    Find us >>

Our sections meet every weekday evening during term time:

Beavers meet on Monday and Thursday evenings

Cubs meet on Wednesday and Thursday evenings

Scouts meet on Monday and Tuesday evenings

Explorers meet on Friday evenings

What’s on

There’s always a lot going on at 1st St Neots. and across St Neots as a whole, from meetings for young people every week day to camps, activities and adventures at weekends!

These can be a Beaver’s first night away from home up to a Scout cooking their first meal on a fire or an Explorer climbing their first Scottish Munro!
