Welcome to 1st Lightwater Scouts
What we do
Lightwater Scouts offers a unique combination of the great outdoors, adventure and fun to young people. There are a number of sections you can join, depending on your age.
Scouting enables people to experience the outdoors; interact with others, gain confidence and have the opportunity to reach their full potential.
Why get involved?
It’s fun! Every year 450,000 young people in the UK enjoy new adventures as a part of Scouting.
The activities teach essential life skills such as leadership, independence, initiative and resilience. It’s an opportunity to try new things and make lifelong friends.
Latest News and Events
- What a camp – an all day bike expedition, cooking on trangias, orienteering, adventure course, picture trail, homemade pizzas in an outdoor oven and plenty more! We even managed to roll a malteser 19ft down a tape measure into a scouts mouth – beat that if you can?!
- Our Beavers and Cubs have recently been practicing their camouflage skills, using their self made ghillie suits. Watch out when you are in the Country Park… the bush might be twitching for a reason! A huge thank you to our Beaver leader Leigh who helped us to simply ‘disappear’!
Volunteers & Fundraising
We believe every young person deserves the chance to push themselves, to develop and grow, to be woken in their tent to the sound of a bustling camp preparing breakfast and to experience life-changing opportunities. If you do too, perhaps you would like to get involved?
As a voluntary organisation we look to raise funds to maintain our facilities and equipment. Perhaps you can help us, or come along to one of our events to support us.
