COVID-19: All face-to-face Scout meetings, activities and events are currently suspended. This suspension applies to young people and adults, and will be until further notice. Please see our news section for updates on virtual scouting activities.


There are loads of fun things that you can do as a Cub Scout with 1st Bernwood Forest Scout Group. We are out and about learning new skills like camping, backwoods cooking and firelighting.

We are involved in local community projects as well as challenging ourselves to try new activities, sports, exploring the outdoors through hikes and team events with our other packs. Our programme is driven by the ambitions of our cubs where they drive the programme planning.

Each year we run a couple of camps involving at least 2 nights way. This gives cubs the opportunity to apply what they have learned and grow in their independence. There is a huge number of badges that they can achieve encouraging them to challenge themselves and gain confidence. Whether overcoming a fear of heights with abseiling down a tower, or kayaking down the river Thames, they can achieve anything they set their minds to with the support of their leader and group.

We have three cub packs.
