About 1st Horsley Scouts
1st Horsley Scout Group provides high quality Scouting to young people in East and West Horsley and surrounding areas. Scouting in Horsley offers fun, challenge and adventure to between 60 and 70 young people in Horsley from the ages of 6 to 14½ years of age in Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. At age 14½, Scouts have an opportunity to move on to the Explorer Scout section until age 18, and to become a Young Leader.
The Scout Association’s mission is to change young people’s lives for the better. At 1st Horsley we make sure that all of our young people experience adventure, big and small, by providing opportunities to take part in a wide range of activities, events and outdoor experiences. Annual camps are organized for Beavers, Cubs and Scouts at various Scout activity centers.
1st Horsley Scout Group is managed by a Group Scout Leader; the Scout Group is part of the Guildford East Scouting District; which in turn is an integral part of Surrey Scouts. Various County and District activities and competitions are arranged throughout the year providing additional opportunities for members to experience fun, friendship and adventure with ”Scouts” from other District and County Scout Groups.
The Beaver, Cub and Scout sections are run by dedicated teams of trained (uniformed) volunteers providing both parental and non-parental assistance. Leader recruitment is a key ingredient of the recipe for successful delivery of high quality Scouting;
The uniformed sections are supported by an Executive Committee, comprising Chairman, Treasurer, Secretary, and both parent and non-parent members, which looks after the Scout Group’s business, including fund raising.
Weekly meetings are held at the Scout Hut in Weston Lea, off East Lane.
▪ Beavers: Fridays 5:30 to 6:45 p.m.
▪ Cubs: Wednesdays 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.
▪ Scouts: Fridays 7:30 to 9:30 p.m.
