What do Scouts get up to?

Discovering the world

Being a Scout is all about discovering the world on their own terms and making the most of what they have, wherever and whoever they are. They’ll master the skills that will help them weather the storms of life, and try things they’d never get the chance to do at home or at school – working with trained volunteers to achieve whatever they set their mind to.

Starting small, thinking big

Scouts start small but think big. They stand up for what they believe in and make a difference on their doorstops, confident in the knowledge that their daily actions add up. In a society that can often feel increasingly isolated and inward facing, Scouts build bridges and break barriers. Throughout history, they’ve played all sorts of useful roles in society, and this legacy continues today.

Listening in, lending a

Scouts seek out the answers to the big questions, and to the smaller questions that don’t seem to matter but really should. Most importantly, they say yes more often than they say no – whether they’re taking part in their first ever camp away from home, or writing their first line of code, or accepting the last of the toasted marshmallows. Sound like fun? That’s because it is.

5th Ormskirk Brownies

We follow the Girlguiding UK programme aimed at girls aged 7 – 10 years. Activities include badgework, sports and drama, games, trips and craft activities. We also take part in national and international events including Fun Days, Thinking Days and we aim to offer at least one holiday during the Brownie Adventure.

The Guiding method is made up of five essentials:

  • Working together in small groups
  • Encouraging Brownies to govern themselves and make their own decisions
  • Having a balanced and varied programme
  • Caring for the individual
  • Sharing a commitment to a common standard

Meetings
We have meetings weekly. Please contact us for details

What do Cubs get up to?

Being a Cub is all about growing and learning in small but mighty ways. Here are some of the things they get up to:

Going on adventures

Race down a river. Tell stories by torchlight. Fall asleep beneath the stars. Alongside their Pack, they’ll spend plenty of time in the great outdoors. Together, they might build a den in their local park, or create an edible raft out of sweets, or go on a moonlit hike through their hometown. And even though they might not be ready to climb Mount Everest just yet, they’re guaranteed to have plenty of adventures on their own doorstop, because being a Cub is all about making the most of what they have, wherever and whoever they are.

Learning new skills

Cubs learn by doing, Some of the skills they develop will be practical, like knowing how to cook a delicious meal or give someone first aid. Others will allow them to become a master at their chosen hobby, or help them to succeed in whichever job they decide to do when they grow up. But the most important skills they’ll learn at Cubs are the ones that will make them feel confident and happy in their own skin. We call these character skills, and they include things like integrity – which means being honest and doing what they think is right – and initiative – which means knowing how to take the lead on something without being asked. Whatever skills they learn, it’s all about having the courage to try new things and learn from them.

Helping others

Cubs work as a team to help other people. Together, they’ll learn about global issues and what we can all do to help solve them. They’ll also make an impact in their own community, through activities such as campaigning to save their local library, collecting donations for a foodbank, or planting trees in a neighbouring park.

What do Beavers get up to?

Being a Beaver is all about growing and learning in small but mighty ways. Here are some of the things they get up to:

Exploring the great outdoors

They spend lots of time outside with the Colony. Together, they might build a den, or go on a trip to the seaside, or host a Beaver sleepover indoors or a camp in a tents. And even though they might not be ready to climb Mount Everest just yet, they’re guaranteed to have plenty of adventures on their own doorstep, because being a Beaver is all about making the most of what they have, wherever and whoever they are.

Trying new activities and learning new things

Going to Beavers is very different from going to school. Instead of learning from books, they’ll figure the world out by exploring, playing and doing.

The most important skills they’ll learn at Beavers are the ones that will make them feel super strong standing on their own two feet. We call these character skills. They include things like integrity – which means being honest and doing what they think is right – and initiative – which means knowing how to take the lead on something without being asked. It’s all about having the courage to try new things and learn from them.

Helping others

Beavers work as a team to help other people, in their local communities and beyond. Whether they’re changing the whole world or helping a friend take the leap to try something new on a rainy Thursday night, they always lend a hand.
