Welcome to Scouts!
3rd Bromley Scouts has been running since 1909 making it one of the oldest troops in the country and we are still going strong maintaining Scouting values and practices! Scouts is open to boys and girls aged between 10 1/2 and 14, and we run from 7pm-9pm every Friday night. As Scouts we have a varied and packed programme of developing skills, going on adventurous days out and camping. The troop is also a great way of making new friends and making bonds that will last for a lifetime.
The troop is very dedicated to acknowledging and recognising when Scouts are outstanding or have gone the extra mile and we have been awarded over 20 Jack Petchey Awards for children aged 11-14 and each scout has received between £200-£250 to spend on the troop. Over the years we have gone on some amazing days out including: Trip to London Zoo, nights at Quasar, Madame Tussauds, Curling, Go Ape and so much more.
Scouts work through a balanced programme continually working through their Chief Scout Gold Award by completing a series of challenges and tasks earning their badges. Hopefully they progress to Explorers when they are 14.
We are always looking for new Scouts so if you like a challenge, and want to make new friends and learn new skills, please contact us by using the form on the right.
Scouts had a really good meeting this week down at Wilberforce Campsite.
They started by going off to search for wood for our camp fire. Luckily they were able to find armfulls of wood!
Next, Rosie and Harry showed them how to build their fires up and light them. As some of the wood was a little bit soggy, it took a while to light them, but with determination and a good deal of patience, we all got there in the end!
While the fires we being built into a proper campfire, Scouts went off into the main field with their torches to help an alien, whose ship had crash-landed, to find all her babies (which looked oddly like old CDs!), which had fallen out of the ship as she flew over! Luckily we managed to find them all and well done to John who found the most!
Next we sang some campfire songs around the campfire, which wouldn’t have been complete without a hot chocolate and some marshmallows!
Finally, we were very pleased to invest Mila into the group. Mila has only been with us for a few weeks, but has already shown the kind of enthusiasm and dedication that we expect at 3rd Bromley. This was also Rosie’s first investiture, just to make it extra special!
