1ST BEARLEY AND SNITTERFIELD SCOUTS

Our group is located a few miles north of Stratford upon Avon, set in 4.1 acres of woodland. It is home to more than seventy members between the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts groups. Our site is also ‘home’ to the local Explorer and Network groups.

We are a scouting group for both boys and girls, offering a wide variety of activities from playing games in and around the hut site in Bearley, to camping and trekking and trips to attractions such as ‘Harry Potter World’ and ‘Scarefest’.

Although our group is based close to the centre of Bearley and Snitterfield , we have a wide catchment area, which includes the Villages of Claverdon, Norton Lindsay, Wooton Wawen and Wilmcote.

Our Leaders are trained and CRB checked, and they are given training in things such as First Aid and Child Protection. They are all highly motivated and committed to providing an interesting, challenging and varied scouting programme. If you would like to get involved as a volunteer, we are always grateful for the support.

Our main objective is very straightforward- to provide the best possible scouting environment where young people are inspired to have a spirit for adventure and a belief in themselves.

Our activity badges allow Scouts to demonstrate their progress in various pursuits, and help them to form new interests. They are usually awarded when a young person has completed a challenging yet achievable set of requirements.
Many older Scouts also complete the various parts of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, or go on an expedition to gain their Explorer Belt.

The Queen's Scout Award marks the pinnacle of effort and achievement for Explorer Scouts and Scout Network members. Every year those who've recently achieved the award get the opportunity to attend a royal parade at
Windsor Castle.
