The 14th Medway Towns is a Scout
Group for girls and boys who live near St Thomas More Primary School in
Walderslade, Chatham, Kent. Starting in Beavers aged 6, young people
move up to Cubs at 8, then on to Scouts at 10½ and Explorer Scouts
at 14. From age 18, they are welcome to stay on as adult leaders. We
are always keen to welcome other adult volunteers to offer fun and
adventure the Scouting way.
Scouts take part in activities as diverse as kayaking, abseiling, expeditions overseas, photography, climbing and zorbing. As a Scout you can learn survival skills, first aid, computer programming, or even how to fly a plane. There’s something for every young person. It’s a great way to have fun, make friends, get outdoors, express your creativity and experience the wider world.
Adventure is at the heart of everything we do. It is the single most important thing that sets Scouts apart. It's exciting being involved with us. We believe that through the everyday adventure of Scouting, young people and adult volunteers regularly experience new challenges that enrich their lives and meet life long friends.
Did you know that as well as hiking, healthy eating and camping badges, our Scouts can develop skills in IT, PR and mechanics? Our activity badges allow Scouts to demonstrate their progress in various pursuits, and help them to form new interests. They are usually awarded when a young person has completed a challenging yet achievable set of requirements. We also have a number of Challenge Awards, which focus on more ambitious tasks and are themed around the zones of our balanced programme.
