Scouting provides skills for life to young people aged 6-25yrs.  They are split into sections based on age: Beaver Scouts (6-8yr), Cub Scouts (8-10½ yr), Scouts (10½-14yrs), Explorer Scouts (14-18yr) and Scouts Network (18-25yr).


1st Easingwold Scouts meet every Wednesday between 18:30 - 20:30 in term time although they may go camping during the school holidays. Meetings are divided between two locations in the Easingwold area throughout the year.

Scouts take part in a wide range of exciting activities gaining awards and badges along the way whilst helping them build a variety of skills and developing self-confidence and great memories. These activities can include Archery, Camping (including International Opportunities), Cooking, backwoods activities, navigation, games, and much, much more.

They also take part in annual community events such as Remembrance Day, St. George's Day and Bonfire Night.



Scouting is very popular, and the size of the Troop can be limited by the number of leaders and / or the support from parents so carries a waiting list. Those already enrolled within the Scouting Movement (e.g. Easingwold Cubs) will automatically progress to Scouts at a suitable point once they have reached the age of 10 ½ years.



A group of Scouts are called a Troop. The Scouts are placed into Patrols, have their own Patrol Leaders and Assistant Patrol Leaders who are the older and more experienced Scouts. 

Scouts make a Scout Promise which includes that they will keep The Scout Law. Their Motto is “Be Prepared”.

In the keeping of their Scout promise they will help and support each other ensuring that every Scout is welcomed, encouraged and supported in any meeting or activity.



The Troop has a number of uniformed leaders who have undergone training and like all leaders have Safeguarding clearance. They are committed to ensure an exciting and engaging program of events are maintained. Contact Seb Thomas for further infor on Scout section.
