About 1st Bernwood Forest Scout Group:
Hello, we are 1st Bernwood Forest Scout Group. We are based at Long Crendon and Dinton in the county of Buckinghamshire. We have a Beaver Colony (for ages 5 1/2 to 7 1/2), three Cub Packs (for ages 7 1/2 to 10 1/2) and two Scout Troops (for ages 10 1/2 to 14).
We are a very active and fully inclusive group and have a fun-packed and exciting programme of activities for the young people that support them developing skills for life.
As a result of our popularity, we have a large waiting list of young people waiting to join in the fun. That’s where you come in.
You don’t need to be Bear Grylls to join us. You don’t need to have been a Scout when you were younger. You don’t even need to know how to put up a tent. Our door is open to people of all ages, genders, races and backgrounds, and we’re only able to change lives because people like you lend a hand. We’re talking about tea makers, tidy-uppers and skill sharers. We’re talking about mini bus drivers and first aiders. We’re talking about students who want to boost their CV, and parents who volunteer so they can spend more time together as a family.
Whatever your skillset, lend a hand for as little or as much time as you can spare, and we promise you’ll get more out than you put in. Because whether you’re helping a leader to run an activity, organising a night away, or buttering 120 slices of bread a group of very hungry eleven year olds - no two Scout meetings are the same. The difference you make, though, is always great.
We provide the training. You show up, get stuck in, and make memories for life.
Sounds fun? Worthwhile? It is. Contact us today to find out how you can help young people develop...
Skills for Life
What are we looking for?
We are looking for adults that want to support young people and their development, but can not commit to being uniformed leaders. Whatever your background, it's your support of the young people that is important.
Our volunteers all have different skills, experience and backgrounds and many have never been involved in scouting before. What they bring to the role includes:-
> Social skills
> Decision making
> A focus on inclusion
So please contact us today to get involved and help young people develop Skills for Life.
