1st Milnrow group information
Scouts is all about fun, challenges and adventure that helps children and young adults reach their full potential, and develops skills for life. All adults are volunteers who freely give their time for the children and this has been happening uninterrupted in Milnrow since 1967 (although did run before between 1930 and 1945).
We meet at various locations in Milnrow. Please click on one of the Contact Us options to find out more.
We have the following sections within our group:
Beaver scouts are our youngest branch of scouts and we take in children around 6 years old to begin working on badges, going on trips, having residential sleepovers, helping in the community and raising funds for various charities. Our Beavers are grouped within the colony into lodges.
Between 8 and 8½ years old our Beavers then move up to Cub Scouts.
Once in Cub Scouts they take part in a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and challenging. They work on more complex badges than the beaver scouts and they go on longer weekend camps. A Cub Scout Pack is split into smaller groups called Sixes. Cubs
At 10½ years the children then move to our Scout Troop where our Scouts undertaker harder badges that require more input and skill development than the cub program ones.
