Based in Southgate, close to the town centre and Goff’s Park, we can trace our heritage back to the first Scout troop in Crawley. Our goal is to be the best Scout Group in Crawley, but we have a lot of competition for that title.
Our aim is to give our local children the skills, self-confidence and awareness to; ‘Do their best’ in an ever-changing world; to understand and ‘Be prepared’ for all environments in which they may find themselves and to have respect for all those we share our planet with.
We also aim to have a lot of fun in the process, so there are lots of games, running about and a fair amount of noise too!
We make regular use of our local campsite at Pease Pottage every term and many of our meetings are held there during the warmer months.
Our trained leaders are all volunteers and between them they have permits for; Archery, Air Rifle Shooting, Mountaineering, Hiking, Camping and we use local activity centres for; Abseiling, Canoeing, Climbing, Zip Wire, Leap of Faith etc.
We have at least 2 exciting UK mountain trips every year, in May we go to Snowdonia and in October we go to the Brecon Beacons. In summer 2020 we are going to the Lake District to climb Scafell Pike.
