1st Cowfold Scout Group was first formed in 1963, and today we are a thriving Scout Group of over 120 young people ranging from Beaver Scouts (ages 6-8), through Cubs (ages 8-10.5), Scouts (ages 10.5-14) and Taurus Explorers (ages 14-18).  Although we are based in Cowfold we also have many members from our surrounding villages of Lower Beeding, Plummers Plain, Handcross, Nuthurst, Mannings Heath, Bolney, Partridge Green, Twineham, Wineham and Monks Gate.


We are currently looking for Leaders to work as part of an existing team to help out with our Beaver Section (children aged 6-8) and Scout Section (children aged 10.5 to 14).  The main responsibilities are -

Manage and lead the operation of the Section. In particular, the planning and delivery of the Balanced Programme, with the help of Assistant Section Leaders, Section Assistants, Young Leaders and members of Scout Active Support as appropriate. Some of the tasks for which the Section Leader is responsible may be delegated to others in the Section, including other Section Leaders, Assistant Section Leaders and Section Assistants

What skills do I need?

Week by week, our volunteers empower thousands of young people to try new things, make new friends and stand on their own two feet.

You don’t need to be Bear Grylls to join us. You don’t need to have been a Scout when you were younger. You don’t even need to know how to put up a tent.

Whatever your skillset, lend a hand for as little or as much time as you can spare, and we promise you’ll get more out than you put in.

We provide the training. You show up, get stuck in, and make new memories for life. Sounds fun? Worthwhile? It is.
