What we do…
Your Scout Group is run by a dedicated group of volunteers who give their time freely for the benefit of Scouting in Crownhill, Plymouth. Our aim is to fulfill the purpose of the Scout movement by promoting the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potentials as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national, and international communities.
1st Crownhill has 3 Scout Sections; Beavers, Cubs and Scouts, and accomodate Plymouth District Explorers. Their meeting times are spread across the week, with activities taking place from Monday - Friday.
The Group is run by a team of volunteers, from parent helpers to scout leaders - no profit is generated from 1st Crownhill and no member of staff is paid for their services. The Group aims to meet regularly to discuss how to manage programmed events and group funds in order to benefit the lives of the children and young adults that we support.
