The 1st Danbury Scout Group welcomes new adult and youth members (male and female) in all sections. Scouting by its very nature is an organisation that embraces diversity. We strongly believe that all individuals have a right to be treated fairly, regardless of their age, gender, socio-economic status, ability, sexual orientation, ethnicity or faith and beliefs. To find our more, take a look at the Scout Association’s Equal Opportunities Policy.

Young People

Whilst we would love to offer places as soon as they’re requested for potential Beavers, Cubs and Scouts, we do currently have a waiting list.

If you would like to add your child’s details to our waiting list, please use our OSM (Online Scout Manager) joining form linked below to add your child to the waiting list. Our waiting list co-ordinator will get in touch with you to confirm your details.

Volunteering with young people

Team player? Love supporting young people? Great at planning? 

Most of our volunteers work directly with young people aged 6-18 through our Beaver, Cub, Scout and Explorer sections – helping young people gain skills for life through activities and adventures.

Working in teams, you might:

      • Welcome young people and families to sessions and events.

      • Make sure everyone’s safe, supported, included and having fun.

      • Help to plan and lead activities.

      • Get involved with days out, camps and expeditions.

      • Share and learn skills – from coding to cake decorating to canoeing.

      • Celebrate young people’s achievements big and small

No previous experience with young people? No problem. Whether you’d like to help out week-after-week or whenever-you-can, contact us to get involved.

Volunteering with the group

Want to make a big impact behind the scenes? Your time and skills can make a difference in so many ways. 

Not all volunteers work directly with young people. Locally, regionally and nationally, many help out in other ways.

Working in teams, you might: 

    • Get the best out of volunteers, using their people and leadership skills.

    • Spread the word about Scouts to attract new members.

    • Help with admin, fundraising, finances, operations or governance.

Not sure how you’d like to help yet, or how much time you have to give? No worries. Contact us so we can chat through the options with you.
