Scout groups for young people in and around the Frome area of Somerset from the age of 6 up to 14 years when the Scouts then become Explorers and Young Leaders. Scouting encourages young people to do more, learn more and be more.
Each week, The Scouts give over 460,000 young people the opportunity to enjoy fun and adventure while developing the skills they need to succeed, now and in the future. The Scouts believe in preparing young people with skills for life including teamwork, leadership and resilience – skills that have helped Scouts become everything from teachers and social workers to astronauts and Olympians.
The Scout group aims to build and develop young people’s confidence, sense of adventure and outdoor skills, as well as encouraging them to explore their beliefs and attitudes and be creative. Scouting offers them the independence to put these skills into practice at camps and even on overseas trips to international jamboree’s! Their Scout values of integrity, respect, care, belief and cooperation guide everything we do.
10th Frome Scout groups meet on Friday evenings at Frome College.
Beavers (6-8 year olds) 6.30pm-7.30pm
Beavers meet weekly to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities. They will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It may be the first time they spend a night away from home so it’s a real adventure for them.
Cubs (8-10½ year olds) 6.30pm-7.45pm
Cubs take part in a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and challenging. A Cub Scout meeting consists of games and activities with plenty of time spent outdoors. Camps and holidays are some of the most memorable events of the year for Cubs.
Scouts (10½-14 year olds) 7.30pm-9pm
Outdoor activities feature prominently, with the highlight being camping. Throughout the year, Scouts learn various skills, such as map reading, camp cooking and first aid in preparation for camp. Rock climbing, potholing, gliding, photography and international experiences are just some of the things they can get up to.
