Welcome. Scouts is all about fun, challenges and adventure.
1st Ramsden & Downham Cubs and Scouts are part of the UK’s biggest mixed youth organisation. We change lives by offering 6- to 25-year-olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact in communities.
Scouts helps children and young adults reach their full potential. Scouts develop skills including teamwork, time management, leadership, initiative, planning, communication, self-motivation, cultural awareness and commitment. We help young people to get jobs, save lives and even change the world.
What do Scouts do?
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.
Scout Groups are autonomous units acquiring and managing their own property and equipment while developing its membership subject to the Scout Association policies and rules. Our group is part of the Billericay and Wickford Scout District.
1st Ramsden & Downham Scout Group can trace its history back to when the group was formed in 1912.
