Children are never too young to start their big Scouting adventure…

At 4th Heswall Scout Group we are fortunate enough to have close to capacity cohort across all sections due, in no small part, to the efforts and continued hard work of our Section Leaders and their teams, a fully supportive Group Executive and most importantly our active parent helpers and section assistants.

Our thriving and active Scout Group has a dedicated leadership team who produce exciting and dynamic programmes for young people ages 6 to 14, teaching life skills as well as having plenty of fun along the way!

It’s exciting being involved with us. We believe that through adventure, young people can regularly experience new challenges that enrich their lives, meet lifelong friends and make memories to last a lifetime throughout their 4th Heswall Scouting journey.


This continued hard work ensures 4th Heswall (St. Peter’s) is a successful group, the downside to this is that we are often oversubscribed across all sections and as such, without sufficient adult support, we may need to place some young members on our waiting lists.

To ensure your child gets a place at 4th Heswall from a young age, we actively encourage parents to offer their support to our group through our Adult Volunteer Programme as well as join the early years waiting list for their child.  This enables our leaders to see the projected intake each term into the each section, as well as predicted assistance from adults to ensure that every child in our area has the opportunity to join the Scouting Movement.

Children with adults who can contribute even a small amount of time to our group will be considered first when selecting from our waiting lists.

If your child is 5 or under and you want them to be part of 4th Heswall (St. Peter’s) Sea Scout Group it is never too early to get their name down…

Scouting develops a child’s mental health, fosters resilience, builds confidence and improves physical ability. Proud parents watch us turn shy little people into confident young adults.

…new experiences are vital for building Brain Architecture, particular Executive Functions, Working Memory, Mental Flexibility and Self Control all help develop better Skills For Life.

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.'
