The Group

Ships captainWe provide Scouting activities to young people in the villages of Great Shelford, Little Shelford and Stapleford, South Cambridgeshire.

We currently run a Beaver Scout Colony, Cub Scout Pack and a Scout Troop, offering Scouting to children from the age of six to fourteen.

As you will see we have a good time, sometimes we run around with a purpose and sometimes with no apparent reason except of course to have fun! Sometimes we build things, sometimes we set fire to things and cook things, sometimes we do challenging things, sometimes we do things to help others and sometimes we play games.  We only tie knots if there is a good reason.

Can you help?


Do you ever feel like coming home from work on Tuesdays and setting fire to something?

Fantastic, we’d love to meet you. We are looking for adults, male or female to join us.  Who are we? We’re a team of people who enjoy being with kids (10½ – 14), having fun, lighting fires, cooking, hiking..….

We’re the Shelford and Stapleford Scout Leaders and we are looking for 3 enthusiastic adults who are willing to come along and join us so we can expand our troop and offer scouting to even more young people.

Just so we don’t put you off, you don’t have to be available every week, you don’t have to have been a scout yourself and it certainly isn’t a lifelong commitment. All we want is to know how much you want to be involved and when to expect you.  Oh and you’ll have to do a CRB check (which is quite painless) and a bit of training but it can be done electronically and we recognise prior learning and experience!

Whetted your appetite? Great, then If you are interested in helping for an hour or a year please click to find out a bit more.

We need to find people ASAP and by the 21st July at the latest if we are going to be able to expand in September. We look forward to talking to you.
