Camping, adventure, fun, teamwork and friendship
We meet on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, from 19:00-21:00
Scouts gives 10½-14 year olds opportunities to develop new skills, try new things as young adults, learn, explore and progress as young leaders
What do Scouts get up to?
We have two packs that meet weekly on a Tuesday or Wednesday night to enjoy a series of games, skill related activities and to meet up with our friends. Our weekend and evening activities include camping, water sports, learning to drive and even flying!
Being a scout is all about growing and learning. Scouts explore the outdoors, go on visits, challenge their fears from heights to the dark with their peers supporting them through activities and games.
Scouts love working in teams and challenging each other but at the end of the day being one group that can achieve and do well

Meet our Scout Leaders
Our Scout Leaders work as a team to plan a balanced programme, supervise activities, share their skills and keep everyone safe. All our leaders are trained volunteers, working to make sure Scouting is safe, inclusive and accessible for everyone
Vicky aka “Skip or Baloo” is our Scout Leader
Vicky started in Scouts 9 years ago. Originally an assistant cub leader (Baloo) at the 6th Lichfield Cubs in 2014, she moved to the 7th Lichfield Erasmus scout group as a leader and developed their leadership team and grew their scouts. In 2017 Vicky moved back to 6th Lichfield Scouts as an assistant scout leader and in October 2018, she was appointed as scout leader.

Badges and Awards
Being a Scout is all about giving new things a go and growing as a person and our programme is bursting at the seams with inclusive activities to engage all abilities. There are lots of activity badges to choose from, these give our scouts a platform to show off their progress in the things they enjoy both at scouts and at home.
Challenge awards are designed to do exactly that - challenge you. They make you step outside of your comfort zone, try things you wouldn't usually be interested in, or take the lead on something that you think is a bit scary. Earning a challenge award is a huge achievement, and you'll need to complete a number of ambitious tasks - not just within your Scout pack, but in the wider community.
Scouts work hard to achieve their Chief Scout’s Gold Award, the highest award in Cub Scouting.
Joining Scouts at 6th Lichfield
Sounds fun? Yes it is! Everyone’s welcome here. If you have any questions about how we can make Scouts accessible to your young person, get in touch with us and we’ll have a chat. We can easily tweak things to make sure that everyone can join in the fun. We want to ensure your young person has the best possible experience in Scouts.
By joining Scouts, your young person becomes part of a worldwide movement, dedicated to helping them develop life skills they can use in the real world, while having fun, adventure and making new friends. We’re so confident that your young person will love Scouts that their first session is free of charge. After this, a membership fee will become due.
All you need to do is register your details on our waiting list. We’ll get in touch when your young person reaches the age to join and we have a space.
Once you’ve joined Scouts and settled in you’ll be earning lots of brilliant badges and need somewhere to put them. This is what our uniform looks like. We are proud to wear the famous red and white neckerchief and if ever you see this in Lichfield, it is one of our Beavers, Cubs, Scouts or Leaders wearing it
Young people are amazing – we’re here to help them realise this.
Invest in your young person’s future with us
Every week, we help our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts to get going, get thinking and get stuck into all sorts of things to help them get on their own two feet and give them real skills they'll be able to take into the real world. We call it our Skills For Life programme.
Our youth members get to try new things, master new skills, have fun and go on adventures, make new friends, learn about the world around them, help other people and help make a difference, both in the local community and in the wider world. With the right help and support, they can all be amazing.
Our volunteers are our everyday heroes that have empowered hundreds of young people that have walked through our doors to do all this and more.
That’s where you come in. Find out how you can help, in whatever way you can make work for you.
It doesn't matter if you weren't a Scout, or if you've never put a tent up in your life, and you don't need to be Bear Grylls. Our doors are open to people who share our values, regardless of ages, gender, race or background - people who help us make a positive change to our young people's lives.
So, if you're a tea-maker, tidy-upper, skill-sharer, minibus-driver, first-aider or a parent that wants to volunteer so they can spend more time together as a family, then perhaps being a volunteer at 6th Lichfield Scout Group will be perfect for you. Whatever skills you've got, and however much time you've got, there's something you can do that will help.
And if that sounds like fun to you, and if it sounds like it's worthwhile, there's a good reason:
