Scouting in Davenham during the COVID-19 pandemic. Read our latest Update here

Scouts

Welcome to 1st Davenham Scouts. Our section is open to all young people aged between 10 and a half and 14 and a half years of age. As a section we enjoy an engaging program that covers a wide range of activities, skills and challenges that follow the scouting badge programme all the way through to the Chief Scout Gold award.

Day: Monday
Time: 19:30-21:00
Age: 10.5 to 14.5 years

During the later spring, summer and early autumn months we meet at Peckmill Scout Wood at the top of Davenham and over late autumn and winter we decamp to Bostock Farm barn, about a mile out of the village. A number of our sessions might also take place ‘off site’, such as Winsford Flashes for raft building and kayaking, on and around the Whitegate Way for hikes and manhunts, and Carey & Marbury Park for bike rides. We also enjoy termly excursions to further afield destinations such as North Face Climbing Wall in Warrington and the dry ski slope and Planet Ice Rink in Widnes.

Building on the skills and experiences gained through the younger sections (though not exclusively so), Scouting looks to further develop self sufficiency, responsibility and life skills in our young people by following the scouting badge framework and by gently nudging them out of their comfort zones with challenges and adventures not always found in everyday life!

As Scouts leaders, we do not adopt specific names or titles and promote a relaxed but respectful culture of openness and inclusion and as such, encourage the use of first names.
