1st Broughton Gifford and Holt Scout Group

2nd July 2018, 3:55pm | By Rhys Schell |

Adventure is at the heart of everything we do. It is the single most important thing that sets Scouts apart.

Through the everyday adventure of Scouting, young people and adult volunteers regularly experience new challenges that enrich their lives.

Scouting helps our young improve their key skills, including social skills, teamwork ability, leadership ability and confidence. Our volunteers also enjoy the benefits of Scouting by learning new skills, making new friends and enjoying a social life with a purpose. There are hundreds of different volunteer roles on offer, from management positions, running activities to behind the scenes roles like driving the minibus or painting and decorating.

Our varied and exciting programme offers hundreds of activities, from camping and hiking to surfing and paragliding. Young people can also achieve their badges in such diverse subjects as PR, electronics and entertainment.

Scouting is a unique adventure that’s full of surprises. Join in and see for yourself.

If you’re interested in your son/daughter joining one of our sections, please complete and submit the form below and we’ll get back to you soon.

Applications to join the Beavers will be accepted for children aged between five and five and a half years old – to start at the age of six assuming we have capacity. We give priority to local children from Broughton Gifford, Holt, Atworth, Shaw and Whitley. It’s unlikely we’ll be able to accept anyone from beyond these villages.

Other than the Beavers intake, all of our sections are currently full. We may offer to put your child on a waiting list but we rarely get to take children off these as we usually remain full. The nearest groups that may have space are in Melksham and Bowerhill.
