What We Do

Adventurous Fun…

Unique Experiences…

Skills For Life…

During the summer the Scouts regularly sail, kayak and powerboat on the marine lake in West Kirby. The Cub and Beaver packs take part in regular trips to the lake combined with visits and outdoor activities to the nearby dales, beaches and country parks.
During the winter all sections meet in the hall for conventional Scouting activities, learn new skills through a variety of activities, games and trips out, as well as informal sessions on seamanship theory and training, with the odd night time expedition to liven things up.

We believe that young people have limitless potential.
We nurture their resilience, embolden self belief, and provide skills and strategies to help wellbeing for their entire life.

All sections regularly take part in District and County camps, and every year we arrange a local All-Sections 4th Heswall camp with lots of games and good times. Throughout the year the Scouts take part in several Challenge Camps and for a week in August they camp at our secluded green field site on Windermere’s west shore.

All sections take part in many district and county events, camps and challenges, including the bi-annual West Wirral Gang Show. We send Scout members on international trips and encourage attainment of the Bronze, Silver and Gold Chief Scout awards and fulfillment of the Duke of Edinburgh volunteer criteria through our Young Leader programme.

We visit local key community service providers, such as the Community Fire Station, the R.N.L.I. and Park Rangers. We parade on St. Peter’s Day, St. George’s Day, Remembrance Sunday, Mother’s Day and at the Harvest Festival. We encourage fundraising with several events throughout the year, raising funds not only for our own charity but also many other good causes in our community.

But Don’t Take Our Word for it…

…but the thing we like doing the most though is ‘messing about on the water’.

Nature and the outdoors are languages that can be learned. Once you identify a beech tree, tie a clove hitch or cook a simple meal over a fire that you’ve built yourself, you’ll never forget it.'
