Squirrels is our newest section, for children aged 4 and 5 years old.

They belong to the first and youngest Section in the Scout Group. Girls and boys can join Squirrels from their 4th birthday. They can move to the next Section, Beavers. at the age of 6.

Squirrels are the youngest section of the Scouting family, and just like all our sections, Squirrels helps young people gain skills for life – with a focus on the outdoors.

It’s the best of Scouts – learning by doing and getting into the great outdoors – combined with early years best practice of storytelling, routine and play.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
