1st Finchingfield Scouts

"Scouting’s 500,000 members are an inspiration. It's great to see it. It's all about friendship and fun and adventure. Scouts are shining lights in their communities." Bear Grylls, Chief Scout.

1st Finchingfield Scout Group is open to all young people (boys and girls) of every faith and background. We have fun, learn new skills and, above all, support the spirit of Scouting. We meet at the Scout Hut by the cricket field in Finchingfield during school term time. The Scout Association offers everyday adventure and activity to young people across the UK.

In the 1st Finchingfield Scout Group there are four Sections:

  • Beaver Scouts for 6 - 8 year olds, meeting from 5.45pm to 7pm on a Wednesday evening
  • Cub Scouts for 8 –10 ½ year olds, meeting from 6.30pm to 8pm on a Tuesday evening
  • Scouts for 10 ½ - 14 year olds, meeting from 7.30pm to 9pm on a Thursday evening
  • Explorer Scouts for 14 – 18 year olds, meeting from 7.30pm to 9pm on a Monday evening

Network Scouts for 18 to 25 year olds meet in Braintree.

Look up your local Scout Group, because you’ve got a safe, practical community who will encourage and support you.’ Bear Grylls, Chief Scout.

1st Finchingfield Scout Group is absolutely reliant on the help and support of numerous adults who help out in various ways to make sure the Group runs smoothly. Leaders that run the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts are given training and advice to make sure they provide the best possible Scouting for the young people in their section. Other adult helpers aid the Leaders giving assistance where needed in running games and supervising activities. We encourage all parents to become involved in the Group by helping at meetings, at camp and other activities. We are also keen to hear from anyone who is interested in becoming a leader or a helper.
