Welcome to 1st Foots Cray Scout Group
The 1st Foots Cray (Sidcup) Scout Group currently has a Beaver Colony, Cub Pack and Scout Troop who meet each week at our HQ in Rectory Lane, Sidcup in the London Borough of Bexley, on the borders of North East Kent. You can see a map of our location by clicking here.
The 1st Foots Cray Scout Group provides a wide range of activities for boys and girls aged 4 to 18
Our Squirrel Drey offers activities for 4-6 year olds and meets Wednesday 5-6 pm
Our Beaver Colony has members aged 6-8 and meets each Monday evening 6-7pm
Our Cub Pack has vacancies for new members 8-10.5 years old, and meets every Thursday evening 6-7.30pm
Our Scout Troop caters for 10-14.5 year olds, and meets each Friday evening 6.30-8.30pm
Our partnered Explorer Unit (Excalibur) provides activities for 14-18 year olds every Friday evening 8-10pm.
In addition to the weekly meetings all sections take part in a number of camps and other activities during the year suitable for the age of the members. In the last year some of the activities undertaken including sailing, canoeing, camping, archery, climbing, air rifle shooting, assault courses, building rope bridges, night hikes, problem solving, group challenges and lots of games.
The Group is an educational charity registration number 303517. As such, the Group provides a progressive training scheme for all sections which builds on the idea of fun and friends and by providing an opportunity for young people to develop, to learn and to enjoy themselves. Scouting can offer a wider range of skills and services than perhaps other, more 'specialised', youth organisations could provide.
If you still think Scouting is just about boys, tents and woggles, then take a look at our video - you might just change your mind. With over 200 activities on offer and half a million members (including 60,000 girls) Scouting offers everyday adventure to young people and adult volunteers.
We also have positions for adult leaders and helpers.
