21st Lincoln Scout Group

For details of Scouting in Bracebridge Heath please email 21stLincoln.scouts@gmail.com

The 21st Lincoln Scout Group currently has 36 boys and girls, split evenly between the Beaver and Cub sections (Our Scout section is currently suspended). Both sections meet weekly during school term time as follows:

·         Beavers on Mondays

·         Cubs on Tuesdays.

The Group is run by Leaders and an Executive Committee that have all undergone Disclosure checks on behalf of the Scouting Association.  Leaders and Committee members are all volunteers that give up their time to provide an exciting and challenging experience tochildren in the local area.

Our evenings are centred around playing games, working towards badges and creating a friendly environment for a bit of light hearted competition amongst the young people.  We have occasional visits to outside organisations and run camps and activities throughout the year.

Scouting is a uniformed organisation and all Beavers, Cubs and Scouts are expected to wear their uniforms to all meetings and are encouraged to take pride in their uniforms and do their best to always look clean and smart.

During 2015 the Group took part in various activities, a few of which follow:

·  Beaver visit to the Lincoln Observatory

·  St Georges Day Parade at Lincoln Cathedral

·  Cub and Scout District Camp at Walesby Scout camp

·  Cubs nature walk

·  Beaver Skills day

·  Remembrance Sunday Parade in Bracebridge Heath

·  Visits by the Beavers and Cub sections to South Park Fire Station.

We have several exiting activities planned for 2016 including Summer camp to celebrate 100 years of Cub Scouts and Pets at home visits by the Beavers.
