Upcoming Events

Programmes for each section will always remain fluid due to the availability of leaders and the weather. 

Most up-to-date plans can be found by logging into Online Scout Manager and on our group Facbeook page for Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.

We run a wide variety of events each week, which range from camp-fire cooking on Bertie West's field and local night hikes to canoeing, games and talent contests, plus trips further afield. Be prepared for plenty of fun.

Our meetings follow the local school term times. Click here for Oxfordshire 2019/2020 School Holidays Planner
