1st Hathersage Scout Group has been established for many years; in fact, we are coming up to our Centenary in 2019! For over 100 years the group has been providing scouting opportunities to children across the Hope Valley. Many things have changed over the years, but we still remain true to the principles of Scouting and work to provide almost endless possibilities to boys and girls; helping them develop, learn new skills and most importantly, have fun!
At Hathersage we are lucky enough to have a Beaver Colony, two Cub Packs and a Scout Troop, with an Explorer Group only a couple of miles away. This means we are able to provide scouting opportunities to boys and girls from 6 – 18 and beyond.
1st Hathersage are based at Bauk Lane, Hathersage with Beavers meeting on a Tuesday, Cubs and Scouts meet on a Thursday.
We also offer great opportunities for adults who may wish to get involved with scouting as Leaders, Assistant Leaders, Occasional Helpers or just offering their specialist skills occasionally, to help support the group.
Beavers are our youngest members, we meet for an hour and a quarter per week. They enjoy all that Scouting has to offer; being introduced to outdoor activities, having the opportunity to be creative, explore their local community and experience the excitement of a Beaver Scout Sleepover with their friends.
The Beaver Colony is the first and youngest section of the Scout Group. Beaver Scouts are young people aged between 6 and 8 years old. There is flexibility in the age range: young people can join from age 5¾, and can move to Cubs between age 7½ and 8½.
For Cubs, excitement and adventure are key. Their programme offers a huge variety of activities surrounding areas of fitness, global and beliefs; whilst allowing them to be creative and get involved in their local communities. Cubs are introduced to exciting outdoor skills and take part in adventurous activities, as well as camps and residential experiences.
The Cub Pack is the second section of the Scout Group, following on from Beavers. Cub Scouts are young people aged between 8 and 10 ½. There is flexibility in the age range: young people can join from age 7½ , and can move to Scouts between age 10 and 11.
Scouts 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. It offers them the independence to put these skills into practice at camps and even on international trips.
The Scouts are encouraged to work together and take the lead on all sorts of projects, from community based work to planning games and activities for their meetings. The Scout Troop is the third section in the Scout Group, above Beavers and Cubs. The Scout Section is for young people aged between 10½ and 14 years. There is flexibility in the age range: young people can join from age 10, and can move to Explorers between age 13½ and 14½.
