The newest branch of the Scouts family tree

Welcome to Squirrel Scouts, a place for 4 and 5 year olds to learn new skills and join the fun for the very first time.

Squirrels meet in groups called Dreys. Each Drey is part of a Scout group with Beaver Colonies, Cub Packs, and Scout Troops, which means there’s plenty of support and space for each young person to grow.

Squirrels have fun and make friends while developing skills they’ll use for the rest of their lives. We worked with the experts to design an achievable and ambitious programme full of laughter, adventure, and chances to ask ‘why?’

Squirrels get outside and explore. They tell stories and play games. They learn about themselves and others. And they figure things out one question, game, or activity at a time.

Become a Brilliant Builder. Try some Exciting Experiments. Go Wild. Let’s Celebrate. Find a Local Superhero. There’s something for everyone.

Squirrels run on weddnesdays at the Scout Hall from 4 to 5pm.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
