4th Weybridge Scouts, Cubs & Beavers Group – Meetings & Volunteering
What Scouts Do
As Scouts, we believe in preparing young people with skills for life.
We encourage young people to do more, learn more and be more. Each week in the UK, we help over 460,000 young people aged 6-25 enjoy fun and adventure while developing the skills they need to succeed, now and in the future.
We’re talking about teamwork, leadership and resilience – skills that have helped Scouts become everything from teachers and social workers to astronauts and Olympians. We help young people develop and improve key life skills.
Beaver Scouts are our youngest members. They usually meet weekly to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities.
They will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It may be the first time they spend a night away from home so it’s a real adventure for them.
A Cub Scout Pack can have up to 36 Cub Scouts and is split into smaller groups called Sixes. Cubs take part in a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and challenging. A Cub Scout meeting consists of games and activities with plenty of time spent outdoors.
Camps and holidays are some of the most memorable events of the year for Cubs.
Each Scout Troop consists of small units of six to eight Scouts called a Patrol, usually led by a Patrol Leader. Outdoor activities feature prominently, with the highlight being camping. Throughout the year, Scouts learn various skills, such as map reading, camp cooking and first aid in preparation for camp.
Rock climbing, potholing, gliding, photography and international experiences are just some of the things they get up to.

Waiting list and volunteering
Sadly, we do have a very long waiting list as we have seen a huge resurgence in Scouting over recent years and currently have over 150 on our waiting list throughout the sections. However, Scouting is also a great adventure for Adults, not just our Young People, and we are currently offering parents the opportunity to get their child to the top of the waiting list if a parent is willing to join our leadership team. Call Graham South (Southy) for more details. He would love to talk you through what’s involved and how YOU can be part of our young people’s development through the Scout Movement.
To put your child’s name on the waiting list, please complete the Online Form.
Whether you can spare an hour a month or a day a year, Scouts have hundreds of opportunities both behind the scenes and directly supporting young people. With full support and award winning training, you can volunteer on a flexible basis. Not only is it incredibly rewarding and great fun, you’ll learn some brilliant skills transferable to the workplace too. We welcome volunteers from every community and background. You don’t need to have been a Scout. You just need to believe in a more positive future and the difference we can make together.
Chief Scout Bear Grylls on Volunteering
Chief Scout Bear Grylls has also expressed his thanks to all of our volunteers, ‘I am so proud that the Scouts continues to see so many young people and adult volunteers signing up to not only have fun and experience adventures but also to learn skills for life.’
Thank you for your dedication to our movement. We would not be where we are today without your hard work and commitment to equipping young people with skills for life.
