The Coxhoe Scout Group provides adventure for young people aged 6 to 14.5 in Coxhoe and the surrounding area. Our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts enjoy a wide range of activities both indoor and outdoor.
Beavers (6-8yrs) usually meet on a Tuesday evening between 5.45 pm and 7.00 pm. Cubs (8-10yrs) meet between 6.00pm to 7.15 pm on Mondays. Scouts (10-14yrs) also meet on a Monday between 7.30 pm and 8.45 pm.
The Scout Group uses Coxhoe Village hall as its base for indoor activities.
What we do
Beavers, Cubs and Scouts in Coxhoe get to try their hand and experience a massive range of activities – in recent years these have included charity fundraising for Great North Air Ambulance and Stray Aid. Outdoor and Adventurous activities including Caving, Canoeing, Orienteering, Day, Evening and Night Hikes, Zip Wires, Climbing, Rafting, Abseiling and Scuba Diving. While overnight activities have included Sleepovers at Beamish Open Air Museum and camps.
The group also take part in competitions including Climb When Ready and SANCTUARY, and complete a wide range of Scout badges including Health and Fitness, Collector, Cook, Photography and Teamwork, to name just a few.
Our young people often get to enjoy cooking both inside and outside, on gas stoves or fires, and even cooking without any implements. We also develop a wide range of skills for example using grid references, map symbols and drawing maps, through to building large structures with ropes and pioneering, laying overgrown hedges and digging puddle clay ponds to name just a few.
We’re always keen to encourage new volunteers either to help regularly at our weekly sessions, deliver a session on a specialist skill or help with the Group management behind the scenes.
Answer yes to any of the above and we would love to hear from you.
Do you have skills or an hour or two to spare and would like to invest your time and energy in helping our young people to develop #SkillsforLife, we always welcome volunteers. Scout DBS checks carried out for all those who volunteer with the group.
