Welcome to the 1st Rendlesham Scout Group’s Website

The Scout Group was founded in 2012, and provides Scouting for young people (both boys and girls) aged from 6 to 14 years old and who live in the village of Rendlesham and the surrounding area of Suffolk.

What is Scouts?

Scouts is about fun, challenges and adventure

We are the UK’s biggest mixed youth organisation. We change lives by offering 6- to 25-year-olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact in communities.

Scouts helps children and young adults reach their full potential. Scouts develop skills including teamwork, time management, leadership, initiative, planning, communication, self-motivation, cultural awareness and commitment. We help young people to get jobs, save lives and even change the world.

What do Scouts do?

Scouts take part in activities as diverse as kayaking, abseiling, expeditions overseas, photography, climbing and zorbing. As a Scout you can learn survival skills, first aid, computer programming, or even how to fly a plane. There’s something for every young person. It’s a great way to have fun, make friends, get outdoors, express your creativity and experience the wider world.

In Rendlesham we currently have

  • A Beaver Colony – ages 6 to 8. The Beavers meet on a Monday at Rendlesham Primary School
  • A Cub Pack – ages 8-10½.  The Cubs meet on a Wednesday at Rendlesham Primary School
  • A Scout Troop – ages 10½-14. The Scouts meet on a Monday usually at Rendlesham Primary School but often elsewhere or outdoors.
