GAQ? Parents

When can my child join Scouting?

Starting age for Beavers is 6. Looking ahead, children can join Cubs from around the age of 8 and Scouts from 10 and a half. Explorer Scouting starts at 14 and runs until Scouts are 18.

How much does membership cost?

It’s around £35 a term, plus extra fees for special activities and camps. If you’re concerned about the cost, do speak to the leader in confidence; there may be assistance available.

How will my child benefit from joining Scouts?

Parents tell us their children benefit hugely from the adventures, fun and friendships they experience. It can help develop your child’s social skills and independence, and give them access to some amazing and memorable opportunities.
