... which brings us on to the next topic...
We are only able to offer Scouting to young people through the generosity of all of the Adult Volunteers who help run the Scout Group. If you are considering offering your assistance, for as much or as little time as you can, then have a look at our ADULT VOLUNTEERS page and contact us.
History of the group- The HQ in Glebe Court was built in 1954 by parents, leaders and volunteers and this was to be used by the 6th and the 12th Mitcham scout groups. They then merged together to form the 6/12th Mitcham Sea Scout group and it has been going strong ever since.
A definition of Scouting -
Scouting offers fun, challenge and everyday adventure to 400,000 girls and boys across the UK. Offering over 200 different activities from abseiling and archery to drama, street sports and water zorbing, Scouting helps 6-25 year olds grow in confidence, achieve their full potential and become active members of their communities.
This is only possible through the efforts of 100,000 volunteers who also enjoy the fun and friendship of Scouting. Trusted by nearly a million parents each week, the movement welcomes members from all backgrounds, faiths and cultures. Special emphasis is placed on bringing the Scouting programme to young people who currently do not benefit, particularly those in inner cities, those in rural areas and other disadvantaged groups. The Scout Association is a registered charity in the UK and part of a worldwide movement of 31 million Scouts working for peace and global friendship.
