At 1st Davenham (Church) Scout Group like all other Scout Groups, we are committed to providing a safe environment for young people to have fun with friends, experiencing activities that may otherwise be unavailable to them.
The group has been running for the last 86 years and are based in Davenham, near Northwich, Cheshire, currently running a Beaver colony, Cub pack and Scout troop.
We provide a friendly, safe environment aimed at offering the right level of support and guidance for each scout and each activity. They enjoy taking part in the weekly meetings, camps, hikes, parades, kayaking and many more activities.
As with most voluntary organisations we depend totally on our Leaders, the Committee and all the Parents for support and involvement in all aspects. It is hard work but the rewards are priceless - for everyone, and especially for our children.
The Scout Association is the UK's largest mixed youth organisation with more than 520,000 members. We’re stronger than we’ve ever been, but we still need more volunteers to help bring Scouting to the thousands of young people waiting to join the adventure.You don’t have to be a Scouting expert or an outdoors survival specialist to make a difference!
Volunteers can help in many ways, from passing on first aid experience to teaching the young people how to cook. Giving a little bit of time could help in a big way. We help volunteers get the most out of their experiences at Scouts by providing opportunities for adventure, training, fun and friendship.
Our award-winning training scheme for volunteers means that adults get as much from Scouts as young people. Our approach focuses on what you want to get out of volunteering with Scouts, while respecting how much time you can offer. Over 90% of Scout volunteers say that their skills and experiences have been useful in their work or personal life.
If you can volunteer some of your time, we'd love to hear from you!
