Scouts

Hello, we are the 10th Warrington Scout Troop.

Fun, exciting, adventurous, and friendly are just four of the words that can be used to describe our section.  We currently have 31 Scouts, 4 leaders, 1 Young Leader, and 1 Scout dog called Dexter, in the group.

We pride ourselves on the diverse and exciting programme of Scouting activities which we deliver.  We ensure that our Scouts take part in a wide range of activities to help them reach their full Scouting potential.  It’s not about being the best in our group, it’s about being the best you can be!

We place a lot of emphasis on teamwork, friendship, and fun.  That’s why we keep our Scouts coming back week-on-week!

The Scout section is for boys and girls between the ages of 10½ and 14 years old.  Although if a child is joining who is not already in our Cubs section, then they can join from 10 years old.

We meet every Thursday from 7pm to 9pm (during school term time), at our Scout Hut on Highfield Avenue (next to The Woodlands Pub) in Great Sankey.

We may be in the midst of a pandemic, but the fun isn’t stopping.  We are still meeting via Zoom, and when allowed by the Scouting Association, we are running face to face sessions.  Still teaching skills for life to our young people.  Since March, the Scouts have learned how to cook a homemade bolognese for a family meal, make pitta pizzas, microwave sponge cakes, debated, played manhunt in the dark, improved our map reading skills, learnt about geocaching…. the list goes on and on!

Some of our recent adventures include:

  • Winter camp at Forest Camp in Cheshire
  • Caving underground in the mines at Alderley Edge
  • Delamere Forest day hike
  • Blackfoot Hike 2019
  • Sailing at Fidlers Ferry
