Discover Scouting

As Scouts, we believe in preparing young people with skills for life. We encourage our young people to do more, learn more and be more.

Here at 21st Coventry, we are proud to be part of an organisation that each week, gives over 460,000 young people the opportunity to enjoy fun and adventure while developing the skills they need to succeed. We’re talking about teamwork, leadership and resilience – skills that have helped Scouts become everything from teachers and social workers to astronauts and Olympians.

(Ages 6 yrs to 8 yrs)

The Beavers motto is ‘Fun & Friends’ which will give you an idea of how meetings are run. We usually meet weekly to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities. We will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It may be the first time they spend a night away from home so it’s a real adventure.

After a few weeks of becoming familiar with the Colony, a Beaver will then make his/her Promise, will wear their Beaver Uniform and be presented with their group neckerchief. Parents are encouraged to be present at an investiture. The Colony is split into ‘lodges’ and they play games, have craft sessions, make friends and gain badges and awards. At present there are 12 activity badges and 6 challenge badges. The top award a Beaver Scout can gain is the Chief Scouts Bronze Award.

Meetings are held each Monday between 6:15pm and 7:15pm.

(Ages 8 yrs to 10.5 yrs)

At the age of 8 Beavers move up to or “swim up” to Cubs or alternately new children can join.

Our Cub Scout Packs are split into smaller groups called Sixes. Cubs take part in a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and challenging. A Cub Scout meeting consists of games and activities with plenty of time spent outdoors. All cubs enjoy gaining badges and awards and there are many activity badges and challenges to work towards. Cub Camp is said to be the favourite activity of cubs.

We have two Cub packs meetings on Tuesdays at 6.45pm until 8.15pm and Wednesdays at 6.30pm until 8.00pm

(Ages 10.5 yrs to 14yrs)

Our Scout Troop is split into small units of six to eight Scouts called Patrols, usually led by a Patrol Leader and an assistant.

The programme offers a balanced programme of different activities and is based around the Scout Badge scheme. There are currently many activity badges as well as another challenge badges which can be awarded.

Outdoor activities feature prominently throughout the year, Scouts learn various skills, such as map reading, shelter building, fire lighting and first aid.

Very often an activity badge or challenge will be gained by being present at meetings or attending a scouting activity, as weekly programmes, outings, camps and visits are organised to include components of badges and awards.

Meetings are held each Monday between 7:30pm and 9:30pm.
