Squirrels are the newest section to join the Scouting Family looking after 4 to 5 year olds. They meet in Dreys  (the name of the home of a squirrel) and as this is a very new section, there are some special rules for setting up Squirrels so you need to contact the This email address is being protected from spambots.

Every week, Squirrels will gather to grow and learn their way through lots of different games and activities

Squirrels can achieve anything they set their minds to – and they have lots of fun along the way.  The one hour sessions is a brilliant opportunity for young people to take their first step into being part of Scouts, and they’ll help everyone get ready for the adventure of school too.

Sessions will be packed with outdoors activities, fun, games, badges, laughter and so much more to help our youngest members learn the skills they need for life. Of course, none of it would be possible without the support of the amazing leaders who plan and deliver such an inspiring programme.
