1st Margate Scouts

Our youth training programme is an advancement system where Scouts are allowed to progress at their own pace. It allows for experiential learning and contributes to their personal development. Cub, Scouts and Rovers acquire Advancement and Interest Badges as part of their journey. By learning new skills and forming lasting friendships through the Scout programme, generations of Scouts have grown up to become some of our nation’s most outstanding leaders!

Our Adult leaders are all volunteers. Many were Scouts themselves or parents of Scouts, but anyone is welcome to join our Movement. All Adult Leaders and volunteers receive comprehensive training. We recognise that in order to provide a good and thorough service to our children and youths we need to make sure that our adults are educated and have the skills and resources needed to ensure the adventure of a lifetime!

In addition to our programme we provide a number of award winning topic related projects for our Scouts to take ownership of. The projects range from health related peer education to environmental climate change and recycling initiatives, to leadership and life skills development projects. Often these themed projects are developed in partnership with other civil society or corporate partners.

What we do?

Not every child or youth likes the same thing. Our award winning programmes and projects provide a wide range of activities for them to choose from. A number of challenges contribute to their growth and advancement through the Scouting programmes and others are specifically designed to appeal to their interests.

Cubs (7-10) follow the Cub trail where they learn new skills, play games, complete creative crafts, enjoy fun camps and community projects,. Along their journey they make new friends and acquire a number of badges.

Scouts (11-17) are guided by the Scout Trail. This adventure trail includes a wide range of activities such as hiking, camping, abseiling, swimming, survival skills, first aid or even flying! Scouting is an awesome and creative way to have fun, meet new people and active outdoors while exploring the world around you!

Rovers (18-30) get the opportunity to indulge in their love for the outdoors while being of service to others.
