Beaver_RGB_multi_linearBeavers (6–8)

Beaver Scouts are our youngest members. They usually meet weekly to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities.

They will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It may be the first time they spend a night away from home so it’s a real adventure for them.


Cubs (8-10½)Cub_RGB_green_linear-small.

A Cub Scout Pack can have up to 36 Cub Scouts and is split into smaller groups called Sixes. Cubs take part in a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and challenging. A Cub Scout meeting consists of games and activities with plenty of time spent outdoors.

Camps and holidays are some of the most memorable events of the year for Cubs.


Scouts_RGB_green_linear-small Scouts (10½–14)

Each Scout Troop consists of small units of six to eight Scouts called a Patrol, usually led by a Patrol Leader. Outdoor activities feature prominently, with the highlight being camping. Throughout the year, Scouts learn various skills, such as map reading, camp cooking and first aid in preparation for camp.

Rock climbing, potholing, gliding, photography and international experiences are just some of the things they get up to.


Explorer Scouts (14–18)Explorers_RGB_blue_linear-small

Explorers are encouraged to lead themselves in deciding the programme and direction of the Unit, with support and guidance from leaders. The section also includes the Young Leaders’ Scheme, where young people are able to take on a leadership role in one of the younger sections.

There is wider scope for activities like offshore sailing, campaigning, performing, parascending, mountaineering and expeditions.


march m2Marching Band

From  January 2016 1st Bradley Stoke Scout Group has its own marching band.  This is open to any young person who is aged between 6 – 18yrs, regardless of whether they are a Scout or Guide.

Our aims are very simple – to offer the opportunity to learn a musical instrument in a relaxed environment, making new friends along the way and having a lot of fun.  We believe all young people should have the chance to show off their talents and our band aims to do just that.

Learning a musical instrument can often help with concentration and self-confidence, while the marching can help with co-ordination and fitness. Being part of a band also means developing good listening and co-operation skills.  Good team work is essential.

We are also always pleased to hear from any adults who have musical talents and are willing to share their expertise by volunteering with us.
