The Squirrel Drey
A Squirrel Drey has members aged 4 and 5 years old.
Every week, Squirrels will gather to grow and learn their way through lots of different games and activities
Squirrels will achieve anything they set their minds to, and having lots of fun along the way.
The one-hour sessions will be a brilliant opportunity for young peoples’ first step into Scouting and preparing them for school years.
Outdoor activities, fun, games, badges and so much more, Squirrels is the opportunity for young people to learn skills for life. Supported by amazing leaders delivering an inspiring programme.
Squirrels gives young people the chance to:
- Make friends
- Have fun outdoors
- Learn new things
- Earn badges through fun activities
Squirrels Scouts work towards 12 Activity Badges, four Challenge Awards, a Membership Award, a Joining In Award, a Moving On Award and a Top Award, which is presented in a district ceremony by the Town Mayor.
- Silk Squirrel Drey meets on Wednesday evenings 16:15 to 17:15
- Weaver Squirrel Drey meets on Friday evenings 3:45 to 4:45
As we are currently the only group in Sevenoaks with Squirrel Scouts there is a long waiting list. If you are interested in volunteering this will enable us to offer more spaces so we will always escalate your young people.
We were delighted that so many members joined us for our Remembrance Day Parade and Service on the Vine on Sunday. While it wasn’t actually sunny, it was warm (for November) and dry. All the sections of the group were represented, including the Squirrels.
Today we welcome the Squirrels section to our Scouting family. Now young people can start to learn #skillsforlife from the age of 4 with Scouts. We are very proud to announce that we have one of 9 Squirrel Dreys in Kent and 200 in the UK starting on the 15th September. We need more volunteers…
