About us

 

Here at 109th Scout Group we currently have over 100 members enjoying our balanced programme every week. The 109th ScoutGroup operates from Lowe Memorial Presbyterian Church, Finaghy, Belfast.

 

The Group has five main sections, Squirrels (4 to 6 year olds), Beaver Scouts (6 to 8 year olds), Cub Scouts (8 to 10½) and Scouts (10½ to 14). For Explorers (14 to 18). we have a partnership agreement with The White Field Explorer Unit, for more information on explorers please follow this link

 

In the UK, Scouting is organised through the Scout Association and has a clear purpose: to help young people to achieve their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities.

 

The above sections cater for boys and girls from primary 1 up to 18 years old, with squirrels being the youngest and explorers being the oldest, if you would like to know where your son / daughter would go, please click the links for more information or email us at contactus@109thscoutgroup.org.uk

How Can You Help Us?

 

We are looking for help either as uniformed leaders or regular helpers offering a variety of skills or as an extra pair of hands. Some of our Sections may no longer be able to welcome any more young people due to lack of leaders/adult support. No previous experience is required.

 

The beauty of Scouting is that as adults you can learn with the young people, have great fun and the Scout Association offers a flexible adult training programme to fit most busy lives. Most of our leaders work full time and have family and other commitments, but we all work as a team to support and help each other.
