1st Wendover Scout Group - CAN YOU HELP

As you already know with children in the group, how much young people get out of scouting with lots of fantastic chances to experience new activities.

Whilst our current leader teams are reasonably well resourced, the sections themselves are running pretty much at full capacity with the young people.

We have many young people on our waiting list, way more than we could ever offer places to. Therefore we are proposing to start a new Beaver Colony in the new year, taking a small number (12) off the waiting list and then building the numbers over the next 18 months, when we would then hopefully open another cub pack.

The 2 Beaver colonies already run parallel programs and are happy to share this experience with the new leader team. Scouting also offers a training program for leaders giving the full range of training needed to run or help with a section.

In our experience, it only takes one person to agree to run the section. This then naturally brings in the additional helpers needed to make up the leader team.

Scouting is very great fun for all involved, young people or adult helpers. Enthusiasm is more important than experience. We have a great team of leaders who are more than willing to support new leaders as they, like you, volunteered at some stage.
