Scouts

1st St Neots Scout Group has two very active sections that meet on Monday and Tuesday evenings.

Our program

We prominently feature adventurous activities throughout our program. During the summer months we host the majority of our activities outdoors. These have included in the past – Narrow boating, Sailing, Climbing, Hiking, Fishing, Wide Games, Archery and of course Camping.

When the nights close in during the winter we continue to enjoy ourselves indoors and sometimes out. Again these have included – First Aid, Rifle shooting, Map and Compass, Night Hikes and Camp cooking.

Whatever time of year it is, we play games at the start of most evening and have some nights completely dedicated to games, indoor and out!

Camping is a highlight and a privilege to our Scouts. We currently camp twice a year but can sometimes be more. This year we are holding a group camp where all sections are invited along with their parents.

Joining Us

When starting, you will be invited along for a number of ‘taster’ evenings to make sure you enjoy what we offer. When ready you will invested where you will be presented with our group scarf. Once invested, you will be expected to arrive in  uniform every meeting.

As you are invested, you will be asked to recite the Scout promise, which is;

On my honour,
I promise to do my best,
To do my duty to God and the Queen,
To help other people,
And to keep the Scout Law.

There are also other versions of the promise for those of other and no faith.

Unfortunately, very few places appear in our Scout Troops as most are taken up by our own Cubs who are “Moving On”. However, if you are interested in enquiring about a place, please visit our Join Us page.
