St. Bernadette's 25th Prestwich and Whitefield Scout Group accommodates for children aged between 6 to 141/2 years old. This website offers the latest news on vacancies, camps and other opportunities for your children to take part in.
Scouting offers challenge and adventure to 500,000 young people aged 6-25 in the UK. We believe in helping our Members fulfil their potential by working in teams, learning by doing and thinking for themselves. We're working to make Scouting available to all and we're passionate about what we do.
Through the adventure of Scouting, young people get to take risks in a safe environment, and have their first taste of responsibility. We give young people experiences they'll never forget.
In Scouting, we provide over 200 activities from abseiling to Zorbing (that's falling out of the sky in a foam ball in case you were wondering). If we don't have an instructor who can help we can normally find someone who can. But Scouting isn't just about activities for their own sake. We encourage our young people to feel the buzz of the challenge and then reflect on what that means. Did they have fun? Do they feel more confident? Would they do it again?
All this is made possible by the efforts of voluntary adult leaders. With award winning training and one-to-one support, we make sure that each one of our volunteers gets to make the best use of their skills and talents. It's this that makes us the largest co-educational movement in the UK.
We need your help though, in order to continue to provide quality Scouting, we need more volunteers. Perhaps you have a particular skill that you could share with the young people, maybe you're a skills instructor elsewhere, or perhaps you have a couple of hours free a week. We want to hear from you.
At the moment we are looking for volunteers to help with the running of the Beavers (aged 6-8) and to form a Fundraising Committee. If you're interested please let us know by contacting us here. Just make sure you tell us what you're interested in and we will process your query as soon as we can.
The Scouts took part in the Bibby's Farm Incident challenge and gained both 1st and 2nd place winning the Gadam Shield!
