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.
We have been instructed by Bromley District Scouts to suspend all Beaver, Cub and Scout meetings until further notice due to the current coronavirus situation.
Scouts have moved to Discord!
During the suspension of face-to-face meetings, our Troop has moved online, still meeting each week. Over the last few weeks, we have played remote games such as Battleships, emoji challenges, quizzes, Pointless, and Guess Who while teaming up and enjoying each other’s company.
The Troop has been set many different challenges to complete each week and the Leaders have joined in too (learning to floss has been really difficult for some of us!).

Real and Virtual Camping
Recently, lots of 3rd Bromley Scouts took part in a world record attempt to have as many people as possible #CampAtHome, they packed bags; cooked meals; made blanket forts; pitched tents in the living room; and created their own makeshift campfires (real and virtual!). It was a fantastic effort that saw 95,342 people from 68 Countries set a record for the largest camp ever! Congratulations to everyone who took part in being World Record Contributors!
The good news that there are still lots more challenges to come! So keep an eye out on the Discord channel and we’ll see you there!
