Hello and a warm welcome
to the 186th Sheffield (Manor) Scout Group
at St Swithun’s Church, Cary Road, Sheffield
Every year scouting helps a huge number of young people to enjoy new adventures; to experience the outdoors; interact with others; gain confidence and to reach their full potential.
At 186th Sheffield, we are keen that every young person is a part of their local community and are seen as a positive image to all. We pride ourselves on our connections with other local organisations dedicated to supporting members of our community. These strong links enable us to support those living in and around our area whilst offering our young members to develop and grow in themselves. We are supported by a dedicated team of adult volunteers, from a variety of backgrounds and professions, offering both their time and energy to ensuring every young child is able to get the most out of scouting.
“Every Scout ought to prepare himself to be a good citizen of his country and of the world”
Lord Baden Powell, Founder of Scouting

Scouts take part in activities as diverse as kayaking, abseiling, expeditions overseas, photography, climbing and zorbing. As a Scout you can learn survival skills, first aid, computer programming, or even how to fly a plane. There’s something for every young person. It’s a great way to have fun, make friends, get outdoors, express your creativity and experience the wider world.
Why join scouting?
Try over 200 activities from archery and acting to street dance and zorbing. Being a scout gives you the opportunity to get involved with a huge range of activities that you wouldn’t normally do
Make new friends within the worldwide family of scouts, all whilst having fun, adventure and exciting activities
Have fun doing a huge range of activities, with loads to do you’ll be spoilt for choice!
Explore the big outdoors, try new things and travel to new places. Scouts have probably done pretty much anything you can think of
Learn lots of new and exciting skills, that will be the envy of all your friends. How many of your friends can build and sail their own raft? Name the stars in the sky? Visit foreign places and say they have friends from all around the world?
Whats more, you can earn badges and rewards whilst doing all this!
Come and give it a go! Start your next adventure with us.
Scouting isn’t just for our young members!
You don’t have to be an adventurer or the best person at tying knots to be part of scouting. Do you have first aid knowledge? Good with numbers? Handy with DIY? Can make a cracking cup of tea? or are you a budding chef? Everybody has a useful skill or two, so why not share this knowledge and passion with others?
We have an array of volunteering opportunities that are fun, easy and flexible allowing you to commit to whatever you have time for – be that once a term for 15 minutes all the way up to being an active member of our leadership team.
Scouting not only allows you to have a brilliant time with others, whilst developing your own skills that are externally recognised, but also gives you the opportunity to self-develop your personal skills, such as teamwork, confidence and leadership. Studies have shown that the vast majority of adult’s have used the skills they have learnt through scouting in their personal and work lives.
If you think this is something you want to be part of then get in touch and let us know what you would like to do. We are always happy for the extra helping hand in whatever form that takes. Contact our GSL by email for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
Beaver Scouts are our youngest members. Beavers are aged 6 to 8. They meet weekly to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities.
They will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It may be the first time they spend a night away from home so it’s a real adventure for them.
Cubs Scouts are aged 8 to 10 1/2. Cubs take part in a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and challenging. A Cub Scout meeting consists of games and activities with plenty of time spent outdoors.
Camps and holidays are some of the most memorable events of the year for Cubs.
Scouts are aged 10 1/2 to 14. Outdoor activities feature prominently, with the highlight being camping. Throughout the year, Scouts learn various skills, such as map reading, camp cooking and first aid in preparation for camp.
Rock climbing, potholing, gliding, photography and international experiences are just some of the things they can get up to.
