    Wimbledon and Wandle Welcome to... Scouts made me a do-er and a give it a go-er. Made me question and listen and have a wide- open mind. Scouts made me take a deep breath and speak up. Made me think on my feet, made me see the big picture, made me ignore the butterflies and go for it. Scouts made me get back up and try again. Made me think about what’s next, and plan for it. Made me jump in, get muddy, give back and get set. We’re Scouts and everyone’s welcome here. All genders, races and backgrounds. Every week we give almost half a million people aged 6-25 the skills they need for school, college, university, the job interview, the important speech, the tricky challenge and the big dreams: the skills they need for life. #SkillsForLife Find Out More Upcoming Events...

  • Cubs | Wimbledon and Wandle

    Cubs Introduction to Cubs For Cubs, excitement and adventure are key. Their programme offers a huge variety of activities surrounding areas of fitness, global and beliefs; whilst allowing them to be creative and get involved in their local communities. Cubs are introduced to exciting outdoor skills and take part in adventurous activities, as well as camps and residential experiences. The Cub Pack is the second section of the Scout Group following on from Beavers. Cub Scouts are young people aged between 8 and 10 ½. There is core flexibility in the age range: young people can join from age 7½ and can move to Scouts between age 10 and 11. It may sometimes be appropriate to extend this flexibility for young people with additional needs. Structure A Cub Pack is usually organised into small groups called Sixes, each headed up by an older Cub called a Sixer, and often with a Seconder as well. Sixes can be used in a number of ways to facilitate the organisation of the Cub Scout Pack. They may provide a ‘home’ area for Cub Scouts to gather at points at the start, during or at the end of the Pack meeting. Activities During their time in the Pack, Cub Scouts will get a chance to try a wide range of different activities as well as going on trips, days out, and on camps. Participation and personal development, rather than meeting set standards, is the key approach, and there are a range of badges and challenge awards that Cub Scouts can gain to recognise their achievements. Further information about badges and awards for the Cub section can be found here. Uniform Cubs may wear a dark green sweatshirt with a Group scarf (often called a necker) and a woggle in the colour of their Six. Uniform and other clothing items can be purchased from . Scout Store

  • Store | Wimbledon and Wandle

    Due to current global COVID-19 pandemic, the District Store is closed for the foreseeable future. ​ A good stock of Beaver, Cub, Scout, Explorer and Sea Scout uniforms and the more common sizes of Leaders’ uniforms is maintained, together with a variety of certificates and books and Cash’s name tape cards. Any other items including scarves, iScout/Heritage clothing, flags, tents and souvenirs can be ordered and many are normally available within a week (special order scarves, flags etc take a little longer) . All items are sold at the recommended retail price, that is the same price that you will pay elsewhere, but the profits are shared pro rata between the Groups who use the Store. Thus, it is the young people of the District who benefit from the profits - not the local shop keepers. We recommend that you bring your child with you whenever possible so that they can try their uniform on. The Badge Secretary is available for Leaders to buy badges at a discounted rate. How to find the District Store The Headquarters is situated in Morden Hall Park. The entrance is in Morden Road between the Surrey Arms public house and Deer Park Gardens. Buses 201 (Morden to Heme Hill) along Morden Road to Surrey Arms 164 from Wimbledon to Sutton 118 from Morden to Brixton 157 from Morden to Crystal Palace 80 from Sutton to Heme Hill 470 from Colliers Wood to Epsom alight at the roundabout end of Morden Hall Road / Morden Road District Store

  • Explorers | Wimbledon and Wandle

    Explorers Introduction to Explorers With the support, direction and guidance of Unit leaders, Explorer Scouts are encouraged to lead themselves, design their own programme and work towards the top awards that Scouting offers. With exciting prospects like being a part of camps and expeditions both home and abroad; adventurous activities such as mountaineering, parascending and offshore sailing; Explorers offers fun and adventure for all. Explorers also have the opportunity to be a part of The which develops their leadership skills and sense of responsibility, by helping to run meetings for younger sections. Explorer Scout Young Leaders’ Scheme Explorer Units are the fourth Section of the Scouting family after Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. Explorer Scouts are young people aged between 14 and 18 years old. There is flexibility in the age range: young people can join from age 13½ but cannot move to Scout Network until 18. Young people must have left the Explorer Scout section before the date of their 18th birthday. Structure A group of Explorer Scouts is called a Unit and is part of the District’s provision of Scouting. An Explorer Scout Unit and a Scout Group may work together under a , which should set out clearly the links between the Unit and the Group, arrangements for communication, use of equipment, facilities and resources. Partnership Agreement The key to running a successful Explorer Unit is flexibility. Due to the other commitments that crop up in a teenager’s life, such as exams, it is important that the programme reflects this. For example, Units may not every week, or carry out the majority of activities at weekends. Activities Explorer Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme including traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking, as well as a wider spectrum of adventurous activities, from abseiling to zorbing. The Explorer programme should be supplemented and complemented by events and activities delivered across the District, allowing them the opportunity to socialise and work with other local Explorer Units. In addition, there are a number of activity badges and ambitious top awards that Explorer Scouts can gain to recognise their achievements. Further information about Explorer Scout badges and awards can be found here. Uniform Explorer Scouts may wear a beige shirt or blouse with a Unit scarf (or a Group one if there is a partnership agreement), and navy blue activity trousers or skirt with a Scout belt. They can wear an Explorer Belt and buckle or Explorer Scout Young Leader Buckle if either of these has been awarded. Uniform and other clothing items can be purchased from . Scout Store

  • 22nd Wimbledon Scout Group

    22nd Wimbledon Scout Group Return to the Wimbledon and Wandle Website 22nd Wimbledon Scout Group About Us The 22nd Wimbledon Scout Group strives to maintain the highest standards in all we do. We have an excellent team of leaders backed by first class facilities, outstanding trustees and, of course, the best young people in the area. It is this that has made us one of the most successful in the Wimbledon and Wandle District in the Scout County of Greater London South West. This tradition of excellence goes right back to our foundation over 90 years ago. We have been lucky to have always had good people running the group who have provided us with a great headquarters in Motspur Park, vehicles, equipment and a number of garages to let to provide the backbone of our income. Having these facilities gives the leadership a great opportunity to offer the best training for young people that is available. The team has a good balance of young leaders with plenty of experienced people to guide them. As Scouting becomes even more popular we continue to grow. We are now an established co-ed group with a good proportion of girls in all sections that has helped to develop the Group even further. If you are not part of the 22nd experience please take a look at our latest Newsletter or our Annual Report and would like to join us either in uniform or as a fund-raiser please contact us on 0845 0944 212 as we would be pleased to welcome you into the ‘family’.
