SCOUTS IN TANWORTH IN ARDEN
SCOUTS IN TANWORTH ARE THE THIRD SECTION OF SCOUTING IN THE UK, TAKING BOYS AND GIRLS FROM THE AGE OF 10 TO 14.
If Beavers and Cubs are about challenge and adventure, Scouts takes it to the next level. Activities are more independent led by the Scouts themselves with leaders there to help where needed but not run the activity. More camps, more weekend activities, more outdoors, more hikes, more Scouting! The Scout section of 1st Tanworth in Arden Scouts started in January 2013, after being closed for 8 years.

Tanworth Scouts are an active member of the West Warwickshore Scout district. This means we get to go on more camps and activities. We meet and compete against Scouts from other groups in competitions including swimming and hikeing. We also get to use the trained leaders from other groups to lead activities our leaders cant like sailing canoeing, shooting, climbing and hill walking.
All are welcome. Scouting is open to boys and girls. You dont have to have been a Cub or Beaver and you dont have to be 10. We accept new Scouts of any age up to 14 (and will happily accept anyone older as a leader).
