There are two Scout Troops at 11th/9th Cambridge: Amazons and Spartans, each with around 30 young people. As with the other sections we are always on the lookout for leaders.
The troops meet on Wednesday (Spartans) and Thursday (Amazons) from 7.30pm until 9.15pm (9.30pm during the summer term) at the Newnham Scout and Guide Centre, Cambridge. The centre will usually be open from 7.15pm if you wish to arrive early or talk to the leaders.
As well as our weekly troop nights, we have a routine of camps and visits, starting at the very beginning of the year:
All our leaders are volunteers and turn up to run activities with the intention of them being fun, for leaders and for Scouts. We ask that the Scouts remember this and behave accordingly!
Parents of scouts are automatically members of the 11th/9th Cambridge Scout Group and we ask that they take an active part in keeping the group functioning. A few hours volunteered each year makes a huge difference: helping with fund raising, turning up for a couple of hours on our annual maintenance day, keeping records or helping out on a camp all help. And they usually work out to be fun, too. Check this spreadsheet for a current list of jobs we are looking for help with.
Our uniforms page has all the details about what to wear and where badges should be sewn.
