You can let us know if you are keen to start your Scouting journey; visit the “Find your local Squirrels” section on the website, enter your postcode to look up your local group and fill in the “Get involved” form. A leader will then be in touch with you.
A group of Squirrel Scouts is called a Dray, and each Dray can be split up into smaller groups called Nests. Squirrels have a Promise and Motto, but there is not a Squirrel Scout Law. The concepts of the Scout Law underpin the activities and the Squirrels learn the concepts of scouting through games, activities and storytelling.
Squirrel Scouts are the youngest section of the Scouting family, they meet for around an hour a week and are supported by a team of adults and young leaders.
Their activities are based around storytelling, making things, outdoor activities, singing, playing games, going on visits, investigating nature, learning how to be safe and most importantly, making new friends, while having lots of fun. Squirrels can work towards their Chief Scout Acorn Award, by completing the challenge and activity award badges at meetings and at home.
