5th Frome (Hayesdown) Scout Group

East Somerset District Scouts, Somerset

Scouting provides fun activities and adventures to young people, who are split into sections based on age. Beaver Scouts (6-8), Cub Scouts (8-10½), Scouts (10½-14), Explorer Scouts (14-18) and Scouts Network (18-25).


Adult Volunteers

Volunteers are pivotal to the running of our Scout Group. These may include leaders, assistants, occasional helpers, parents, administrators, fundraisers and more.

You don’t have to be an adventurer like Bear Grylls to get involved with Scouting. Do you have first aid knowledge? Are you good with numbers? Handy in the kitchen? Or are you a DIY whizz? We all have useful skills and you can volunteer and help in many ways.

If you would like to hear more, use the Contact Us link on the left.


Purpose

Scouting exists to actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.


Values

As Scouts we are guided by these values:

Integrity We say what we mean and when we make a promise, we keep it.
Respect We listen to others, explore our differences and work to find common ground.
Care Scouts are friends to all and think of others before themselves.
Belief We believe passionately in improving the lives and life chances of young people and helping them explore and develop their beliefs and attitudes.
Cooperation Scouting is about teamwork. We believe that when we work together we achieve more than we can on our own.


Methods

Scouting takes place when young people, in partnership with adults, work together based on the values of Scouting and:

  • enjoy what they are doing and have fun;
  • take part in activities indoors and outdoors;
  • learn by doing;
  • share in spiritual reflection;
  • take responsibility and make choices;
  • undertake new and challenging activities;
  • make and live by their Promise

Programme

The Scouting Programme for all sections is based around three main themes: outdoor and adventure, world and skills. In each section a range of badges and awards support all aspects of Scouting, including the main themes: leadership, teamwork and personal development. The Programme is delivered in a balanced way that incorporates elements from each theme, to offer young people the most interesting and diverse experience.

Family Walk - 11th July 2019
06/07/2019 By Paul Marsh

Please note that on Thursday 11th  July there will be no meetings at Tedbury Camp Site due to its use by other external organisations. Therefore as we do at this time each year, we will be running a family walk on the Thursday evening for all age groups i.e. Beavers, Cubs and Scouts and encourage all family members to come along (Dogs also welcome)  and join us for the evening. We will also running a scavenger hunt (Download Here) where you have to find objects starting with any of the letters that make up "Frome Scouts" (Participants may want to bring a small bag or rucksack to collect objects). On our return to the church, leaders will check and score each sheet.

 

This year the walk will start at the Church at East Woodlands (see location on the left hand side of the map HERE) at 6:00pm and will take us on a circular route through rolling countryside around Roddenbury Hill on the Longleat Estate and back. It is expected that we will arrive back at the church car park by approx 8:15pm. There will be refreshments just over half way round, which Ray will provide when we get to Friggle Street (see the top of the map HERE).

 

If you are just dropping your Beaver, Cub or Scout and not coming on the walk yourself that's fine, please just ensure your child finds their respective leader and lets them know
