Eccleston Scout Group

Welcome to the adventure!

Life as a Scout is an eye-opening adventure. Scouting exists to actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to the community.

The Scout section is the third section in the Scout Group, following Beavers and Cubs, for young people aged between 10½ and 14 years old.

Scouts make friends with like-minded young people from all walks of life. Together, they will earn badges and awards by taking part in both indoor and outdoor activities.

When Scouts join they are 'invested' – making a promise to do their best and help others. You can find the scout promise and law on this page.

If you're thinking of joining us, please click the 'getting started' link below to find out more about how to get involved.

On this page you can also find out more about the uniform scouts wear, badges and awards and more about our leaders.

All young people and leaders are required to wear uniform at most Scouting events and sessions. Each section is identifiable by its unique uniform.

Scouts wear a teal green shirt or blouse and our group scarf with a woggle.

You will get a necker when you start with us, but you'll have to buy a shirt. You can go to the Chorley Scouts Shop or just ask one of the leaders.
