Message below from Mrs Critchley and 1st Naples Scout Group:
1st Naples Scout Group was founded in 2021.
We Currently run 4 sections:
Squirrels age 4-6
Beavers age 6-7.5
Cubs age 7.5-10.5
Scouts age 10.5 – 14
We meet on the school grounds in the summer and at the community facility over the darker, wetter months. Our meetings are held on Mondays, and run in line with the British school terms. In the school grounds we have a Teepee which we were lucky enough to receive funding for as we were a new group forming.
With 50 young people on our register, we are at full capacity, and currently have a waiting list. We are hopeful to keep the Group going strong, but cannot do it without the help of volunteers. Volunteers do not need to make it a full-time job, but it could easily be a secondary duty. You do not have to have children to be involved.
With military training you all have skills that can be taught to our young people. Think camping, fire lighting, map reading, outdoor cooking, axe skills etc.
To become a leader or regular helper a small amount of training is required and a Scout DBS which is a quick and easy process.
Please contact me for more information if you would like to help support 1st Naples Scout Group. Everyone is welcome.
