Copyright© 1st Claygate Scout Group 2002 --


New Leaders

As Kitchener once famously said: "we need you"!  

Whilst we are not at war, running a substantial group such as the First Claygate scout group, requires a lot of time and effort.  Sadly, this the running of the Scouting activities often falls to a few, very dedicated, individuals. 

What qualifications do I need as a Scout Leader?

The qualifications required to be a Scouter are straightforward; namely an acceptance of the aims and methods of the Scout Association and a willingness to accept the Scout Promise. A simple training Programme exists to augment the knowledge and experience gained whilst working with all sections. Every month the Scouters of all sections meet together to plan activities and discuss the progress of the boys in their charge.

All leaders are over 18 and are also known as ‘Scouters’. In this and every Scout Group all leaders are unpaid and offer their service for no reward other than the satisfaction of knowing that it is their help which makes Scouting possible and enjoyable for the boys and girls.

What’s in it for me?

Meeting other like minded local people who enjoy being with and helping develop creative and well rounded adults of the future... and enjoying yourself too!

The Group Executive

The management of the Group is the responsibility of the Group Executive Committee and its membership is made up of parents and supporters appointed at our Annual General Meeting, and the Senior Scouters. Sub-Committees exist covering the major areas of responsibility – Finance, Communications, and Property.

Who should I Contact?
