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

All of the adults working in the Group are volunteers and give their time freely; they are the reason for our success. We adopt a ‘flexible volunteering’ approach so their time commitment can vary from an hour or so a month to a few hours a week.

In the UK, Scouting is organised through The Scouts (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

Scout Network is for 18 to 25 year olds looking for adventure. As a Scout Network Member you get to take part in all the usual great Scouting activities such as kayaking, climbing, camping… as well as work on projects helping to support your local community.

Note: Squirrels are not part of The Scouts (The Scout Association).


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.
