1st Woodhall Spa Scout Group
The Woodhall Spa Scout Group has three vibrant sections: Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. Including the Leaders we have over 60 members in the village, plus a team of Young Leaders, section assistants and Parent helpers. We also have an active Executive committee who support and ensure the effective administration of the Group. All sections are open to both boys and girls of all Religious and Cultural backgrounds.
Beavers (meet at St Andrews School 5.30pm)
Aged from 6 years to 8 years old Beaver Scouts are the youngest section of the Scouting family. Their activities are based around making things, outdoor activities, singing, playing games, going out on visits, investigating nature, listening to stories, learning how to be safe and most importantly, making new friends.
Cubs (meet at Coronation hall 5.30pm)
Aged from 8 to 10½, they take part in a wide range of activities. From indoor craft work to outdoor sport and team-building exercises. Cubs have a diverse programme, gaining badges for different skills and achievements. Cubs also have the opportunity to go on a summer camp.
Scouts (meet at St Andrews School 7.00pm)
Aged from 10 to 14½, Scouts are the third section of the Scouting movement. Scouts take part in different sports from football to parascending, kayaking to hiking. They participate in international camps with many thousands of Scouts, just a few in the Scout Woods on Kirkby Lane. They learn to read maps, use GPS’s and cook on wood fires.
