We are a large Scout group based in the heart of Woosehill, within Wokingham District and Berkshire County. We run two Beaver colonies, two Cub packs and two Scout troops as well as playing host to an active Explorer Scout Unit.
We aim to provide young people with opportunities to experience adventure, enjoy the outdoors, interact with others, gain confidence and have the chance to develop and reach their full potential.
Everyone involved in running the 1st Woosehill Scout Group is a volunteer, and we are always looking for new people to get involved and help give our young people a fantastic Scouting experience. We always welcome anyone who is willing to join the leadership team of any of the uniformed sections, and our Executive Committee is currently looking for a new Chair and Secretary.
