The 4th Falmouth Scout group, with links to the Parish Church has been active continuously since 1950, but is even older than that having originally begun in 1921. There was a break when the group was disbanded at the start of World War II.
What do the Scouts do?
Scouting provides opportunities to take part in adventurous activities, learn new skills and play a role in our community. We spend lots of time outside, camping and hiking as well as water sports, craft and learning “life skills”.
The Scouting movement welcomes young people, both boys and girls of all faiths, we have members from all over the town and from the surrounding areas such as Mabe, Penryn, Budock & Constantine
Beaver members are girls and boys aged 6-8.
Cub members are girls and boys aged 8-10.5.
Scouts are girls and boys aged 10.5-14.
We also have an “Explorer” unit, catering for youngsters up to the age of 18, after which they may join us as leaders or move on to the Falmouth “Network” unit.
During term time, on Thursdays in the Church Hall in New Street:
Beavers meet from 4.30-6pm.
Cubs meet from 6-8pm.
Scouts meet from 6-8pm.
The sections often join together for shared activities too.
Yes. Regular helpers will need to fulfill a DBS check and some roles may require further training, but we welcome as much or as little time as you feel able to give.
