We’re starting a new provision for four and five year olds called Squirrels, to help young people gain skills for life at a time when it matters most and where it’s most needed.
There is currently one active Squirrel Drey in Newcastle (Full). Register your child’s interest to join Squirrels fill in the form here.
Squirrels is the newest of all our sections, having been a pilot programme of the Scouts for the past few years, City of Newcastle District is getting ready to welcome our youngest ever members
Every week, Squirrels will gather to grow and learn their way through lots of different games and activities
Squirrels can achieve anything they set their minds to – and they have lots of fun along the way.
The one hour sessions will be a brilliant opportunity for young people to take their first step into being part of Scouts, and they’ll help everyone get ready for the adventure of school too.
Sessions will be packed with outdoors activities, fun, games, badges, laughter, and so much more to help our youngest members learn the skills they need for life. Of course, none of it would be possible without the support of the amazing leaders who plan and deliver such an inspiring programme.
Will you be our next Squirrels volunteer?
Volunteering’s not just about giving back – the benefits go both ways. All of our activities are run by amazing volunteers. Volunteering lets you try new things, meet new people, and make a difference. We know that volunteering is #GoodForYou because when you volunteer, you’ll:
Do something good for your community and yourself
- Gain skills for the future
- Spend time with your children or gain experience with young people
- Make friends
- Make memories
Volunteering will keep your body and brain active as you make a huge difference to young people’s lives – helping them develop skills for life and learn a whole lot about themselves along the way.
It doesn’t matter if you want to get involved regularly or help out occasionally – we can find the right fit for you.
