Scouting is designed to be fun for both the young and old as well as being adventurous and exciting for everyone.

The 12th Hampstead Scout Group is a vibrant, pro active group with a committed leadership team – but we are ALWAYS looking for extra help.  Perhaps you only have a few hours to spare and could help out one Monday evening a month or on day trips?,  Have a skill such as cooking then perhaps help out at camps with cooking the meals so the section leaders run the activities.

On average every young person receives 100 hours of activities and in addition up to 7 days of camping or nights away each year (depending on section).  Scouting builds independence, friendship, confidence, social Skills, environmental awareness, respect for themselves and others and most importantly life skills. FACT: A young person can, as a direct result of their involvement in Scouting, offer a more attractive prospect to potential employers and universities. They will learn skills which are not available from any other youth organisation, such as fire lighting, outdoor cooking on open fires, pioneering, tent pitching, orienteering and many more.

We find many parents are keen to get their kids into scouting because of the fond memories they have of lighting fires or getting thoroughly muddy.

The aim of the 12th Hampstead Scout Group  has always been to make Scouting a fun, adventurous and exciting activity for the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. Of course, in order to do this, we need adults to carry out various functions, planning activities, cooking meals on camp and a miriad other tasks.

So if you would like to be part of a fun and rewarding experience and make new friends, build confidence and self esteem and never be bored, please contact us to find out more.

No matter if you can only spare a couple of hours a month, or if you can occasionally help on day trips or camps or even with admin then please get in touch and support this rapidly growing pro active Scout Group with over 90 young members across all three sections from Beavers to Scouts.
