You’re not alone. As well as the chance to take part in a range of exciting activities, Scouts learn other skills as well. A recent study showed that 87% of young people said that Scouting helped them to contribute to their communities as active citizens.

Waiting List

Due to over-subscription, especially at Beaver and Cub age (6-10 years), all Scout Groups in Bristol Cabot District operate a waiting list in line with District Policy. Even so, in some groups irrespective that a child may have been registered at age 6 or earlier, the pressure on demand may mean that a child is not be offered a place until they reach scout age. The Policy can be found here but the key points are as follows:

  • Each group maintains its own waiting list.
  • The earliest age to be added to the waiting list is at age four – two years before becoming eligible to join Beavers at age six.
  • Children are only included on one group waiting list at a time.

By completing the online Enquiry Form your details will be acknowledged and then forwarded to the group closest to your address. They will then contact you direct usually within 2 weeks. As everyone at Group and District level are volunteers sometimes this may take a little longer.
