You can find out more about Scouting in Andover and enjoy free activities on Saturday 4th October in the Chantry Centre. Scouting offers challenge and adventure to 400,000 young people and 100,000 adults across the UK. The Scouts believe in helping their Members fulfil their potential by working in teams, learning by doing and thinking for themselves, giving people of every background the chance to stretch themselves, learn new skills and make lifelong friends. Andover District Scouting is an active and thriving organisation with over 700 young members aged 6 to 18 years and 150 adult volunteers.
There are 13 groups in both town and rural locations around Andover, also offering sailing tuition and flying experience within their Sea Scout and Air Scout Groups. On Saturday 4th October in the Chantry Centre from 10am to 4pm Andover Scouting is giving you the opportunity to come along and meet the leadership team and experience some of their activities for free. You can try out the climbing wall, archery, rope making, make a friendship bracelet and even tie an edible knot!
If you would like to enjoy the fun, friendship and adventure of Scouting and consider joining the team Andover Scouts would really welcome you. Prior experience or a connection with Scouting is not necessary and they welcome people from every different background. Remember, you can decide how much or little time you give to Scouting. You can work directly with young people or in a behind the scenes role as a team or individual.
With training and one-to-one support, Andover Scouting make sure that each one of their volunteers gets to make best use of their skills and talents. Scouting is a charity that has a positive and practical impact not only on young people, providing opportunities to grow in confidence and develop life skills, but also on adult volunteers, positively impacting in their professional and personal lives and providing the opportunity to develop skills such as training, management, and communications.
