A New Section for 4-5 year olds



We couldn’t be prouder in North Yorkshire to announce Squirrels: our new programme for 4 and 5 year olds. It’s also a historic milestone for the UK Scout movement. As the first new age range in Scouts for 35 years, we’re helping fleur de lis newyoung people gain skills for life where and when it matters most.

Following two years of pilots and pioneering work in Northern Ireland, 200 Squirrel Dreys have opened in locations across the UK. We’re prioritising communities most affected by the pandemic, and supporting families and young people who’ve fallen behind.

We’re particularly proud to welcome those young people from underrepresented communities, including those who haven’t tried Scouts before.  More information HERE.
