We frequently put on outdoor exercise activities for the scouts designed to improve their health and fitness. Child weight issues are a growing problem in today’s society, and we want all of our scouts to be of healthy weight for boys. The activities we put on were devised by Discovery Learning trained fitness trainers with the purpose of burning calories and developing the growing muscles of children.
As a group we are hugely proud of our heritage and our achievements particularly in recent years. The growth in our numbers from less than 50 a few years ago to nearly 250 today shows that we are doing something right. We are the largest scout group in Berkshire and one of the largest in the Country.
We are a family friendly group and when young people join us, so do their families. We aim to include parents in as much as possible whether its helping out at weekly meetings, coming along to our annual family camp or just helping out with a bit of DIY at our Headquarters. Many of our adult leaders are also parents!
