Squirrels are the youngest section of Scouting.  Open to boys and girls aged 4 and 5, they are all about finding out about the world around them!  They meet weekly in Dreys.

They have a programme built around games and activities – all driven by an agenda of fun.

Each session last just one hour and it is a chance for young people to begin their Scouting adventure.  Like every other section, there are badges to be gained and milestones to be passed as the Squirrels gain confidence in themselves and their Drey.


Nature and the outdoors are languages that can be learned. Once you identify a beech tree, tie a clove hitch or cook a simple meal over a fire that you’ve built yourself, you’ll never forget it.'
