1st Molescroft Scout Group
Scouting is the UK's biggest mixed youth organisation. We change lives by offering 6- to 25-year-olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact in communities.
Scouts helps children and young adults reach their full potential. Scouts develop skills including teamwork, time management, leadership, initiative, planning, communication, self-motivation, cultural awareness and commitment. We help young people to get jobs, save lives and even change the world.
1st Molescroft Scout Group, founded in 1934, has its own headquarters in Molescroft, within the grounds of Longcroft School, with members from Molescroft as well as north Beverley & the surrounding villages. The Group is made up of a Beaver Scout Colony (for six to eight year olds), a Cub Scout Pack (for eight to 101Ž2 year-olds) and the Scout Troop for young people aged 101Ž2 to 14-years-old. There are several Explorer Scout units for those aged 14 to 18 years within the Beverley area. These sections hold weekly meetings, which are all run by a team of volunteer leaders.
What do Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts & Scouts do?
Scouts take part in activities as diverse as kayaking, abseiling, expeditions overseas, photography, climbing and zorbing. As a Scout you can learn survival skills, first aid, computer programming, or even how to fly a plane. There's something for every young person. It's a great way to have fun, make friends, get outdoors, express your creativity and experience the wider world.
What do Scouting's volunteers do?
Scouting's everyday adventure is possible thanks to our adult volunteers, who support Scouts in a wide range of roles from working directly with young people, to helping manage a Group, to being a charity Trustee. We help volunteers get the most out of their experiences at Scouts by providing opportunities for adventure, training, fun and friendship.
Our award-winning training scheme for volunteers means that adults get as much from Scouts as young people. Our approach focuses on what you want to get out of volunteering with Scouts, while respecting how much time you can offer. Over 90% of Scout volunteers say that their skills and experiences have been useful in their work or personal life.
1st Molescroft Scout Group have opportunities for adults to join as leaders working with young people or to help out behind the scenes as a member of the committee that manages the headquarters and fundraising for the Group.
