Welcome to 8th Alton Scout Group
Here at 8th Alton we currently have over 220 members enjoying our balanced programme every week. The 8th Alton Group operates from a purpose built cabin on the edge of Anstey Park.
Being outdoors is important and much of our programme revolves around traditional scouting skills, such as camping, survival skills and cooking, as well as a wider range of adventurous activities to suit all of our young members.
The Group has three main sections, Beaver Scouts (6 to 8 year olds), Cub Scouts (8 to 10½) and Scouts (10½ to 14). For Explorers (14 to 18) please follow this link.
In the UK, Scouting is organised through the Scout Association and has a clear purpose: to help young people to achieve their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities.
