At 1st Boscombe Down, our young members are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme. “Participation” rather than meeting set standards is the key approach, and for the child who wants to be recognised for his or her achievements there are a number of Challenges Awards and Activity Badges.
All sections take part in a balanced programme that helps them to find out about the world in which they live, encourages them to know their own abilities and the importance of keeping fit and helps develop their creative talents. It also provides opportunities to explore their own values and personal attitudes.
Our Group is currently comprised of a Beaver Colony, Cub Pack and Scout Troop:
All Sections meet at the Nicolson Centre in Amesbury, opposite the main entrance to MoD Boscombe Down. For parents/guardians of young people who are interested in becoming involved, all enquiries should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07900128829
