We are 1st Trumpington Scouts, part of the UK’s biggest mixed youth organisation.
We change lives by offering 6 to 14 year-olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and skills for life.
Join the Scout Movement in Trumpington, either as a young person or an adult volunteer.
Being a Scout gives you the chance to get stuck into loads of activities you wouldn’t normally get to do. Chief Scout Bear Grylls says life is about grabbing opportunities. We agree! Above everything else, Scouting is all about enjoying yourself, whatever you’re doing – and there’ll always be plenty to do!
Make friends and try new activities
Wednesdays 1745-1845 during term time, at Fawcett primary school
Beaver Scouts are our youngest members. They usually meet weekly to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities.
They also have opportunities 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 for them.
In 1st Trumpington, we have a number of competitions and events that we do, including – but not limited to – a hike in the country, the schools’ summer fairs, and an annual outing!
Learn practical skills while having adventures
Wednesdays 1900-2030 during term time, at Fawcett primary school
A Cub Scout Pack can have up to 36 Cub Scouts and is 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.
Camps and holidays are some of the most memorable events of the year for Cubs.
In 1st Trumpington, we have a number of competitions and events that we do, including – but not limited to – annual Cub Campfire, and District Cub Camp!
Build confidence, resilience and a sense of adventure
Thursdays 1900-2045 during term time, at Trumpington Pavilion
Each Scout Troop consists of small units of six to eight Scouts called a Patrol, usually led by a Patrol Leader. Outdoor activities feature prominently, with the highlight being camping. Throughout the year, Scouts learn various skills, such as map reading, camp cooking and first aid in preparation for camp.
Rock climbing, potholing, photography and international experiences are just some of the things they get up to.
In 1st Trumpington, we have a number of competitions and events that we do, including – but not limited to – wassailing, camp cooking and geocacheing!
All adults welcome!
Develop young people, have fun and build new skills
Adults get as much from Scouting as our young people. Volunteering with us is easy, fun and flexible – how much time you give is completely up to you. Whether you help out once a fortnight, month or term or just at special events or camps, there is bound to be a role you can play, ranging from leadership to running residential experiences and first aid, to being part of our governing committee. No matter how you get involved, we’ll make sure you’re properly trained and supported.
Sometimes we have specific vacancies.
Interested in joining as a Beaver, Cub or Scout?
Please add yourself to our waiting list.
Our sections are normally full but spaces do open up regularly. If your parent is a leader or volunteer you can jump to the top of the queue, as more leaders and volunteers means we can open up more spaces in our sections. Many of our leaders are parents.
If you are a parent interested in signing your child up, get in touch with us to find out more about volunteering!
