About Scouts

Jump in, get muddy, give back and get set. Scouts ignore the butterflies and go for it; soon so will you.

Meetings

Scouts are aged between 10½ and 14 years

We usually meet on Tuesdays from 19:00 to 21:00 at Cringleford Scout Hut

Subscription costs £35 per term, payable by direct debit though the Online Scout Manager system

Uniform

You can buy your uniform either online or in person from the Norfolk Scout Shop.

There is no need to buy badges as these will be provided as you earn them. You can check where to put them on your uniform on the national Scouts website.
