Currently we are operating at Amber stage which allows indoor and outdoor scouting activities.
All Local Groups require a Risk Assessment approved by their Exec and the District before any activities can take place.
Scouting provides adventurous activities and personal development opportunities for GIRLS and BOYS aged 6-25.
Yes that's right Scouting is for Girls and boys. In fact since 1976 Scouting has girls involved and in 2007 Girls were allowed to join all Scout sections.
Personal development means promoting the physical, intellectual, social and spiritual well-being of the individual, helping them achieve their full potential. In Scouting, we believe that young people develop most when they are ‘learning by doing,’ when they are given responsibility, work in teams, take acceptable risks and think for themselves.
Internationally, there are over 28 million young people enjoying the benefits of Scouting across 216 countries.
As you can see by our name, our district covers the town of Ware and the surrounding areas. Click here to see a map of the District.
Scouting in Ware & District is incredibly popular and most Groups have waiting lists for most section.
This means we have young people keen to start their adventure but are having to wait for a space.
The main limitation to removing those waiting lists is a lack of Adult support and help.
Please consider if you are able to offer any help (even if you don’t have a young person waiting to join us) and if you think you can then contact us via our Volunteering Form.
