Scouts accept boys and girls between 10½ and 14½.


Scouts aims to build and develop young people’s confidence, sense of adventure and outdoor skills, as well as encouraging them to explore their beliefs and attitudes and be creative. It offers them the independence to put these skills into practice at camps and even on international trips.

Scouts are encouraged to work together and take the lead on all sorts of projects, from community based work to planning games and activities for their meetings.

The Scout Troop is the third section in the Scout Group, above Beavers and Cubs. The Scout Section is for young people aged between 10½ and 14 years. There is core flexibility in the age range: young people can join from age 10, and can move to Explorers between age 13½ and 14½. It may sometimes be appropriate to extend this flexibility for young people with additional needs.


The normal meeting place is our HQ “Gordon Hall”, on Lineside Way in Littlehampton. However throughout the year we will meet in various other locations depending on the activities we are doing.


Our Scout troop meet on a Friday evenings from 1930 to 2115.

Life after Scouts?

Between the ages of 14½ and 18, young people can belong to the Explorer Scouts. These are run by the Scout District; the Littlehampton Unit is called Warrior Explorers. It is a combination of all 3 Littlehampton Groups, this gives Warriors unique opportunities as it is fed by Air, Sea and Land Scouts, there are other units locally and we will be more than happy to give you details of other units that serve our area and to introduce young people to these Explorer Units.

There is a transfer process which is supported with a Link Badge.
