If you're wondering what sort people do this ... we're 1st Birchington Air Scout Group, providing Scouting, fun and adventure to children young people from the age of 6 to 18. We're also one of only a few Air Scout groups in Kent, so our Scout and Explorer section has some great opportunities to view life from a different point of view.
We have the following sections:
- Beavers for 6 & 7-year olds, our youngest section introduces the ideas of Scouting and sleepovers indoors.
- Cubs for 8 to 10.5 year olds, this section enjoys camping outdoors and beginning to learn Scoutcraft skills.
- Scouts for 10.5 to 14year olds, the group runs advanced activities/camps and, as mentioned above, also to get to chance to try air activities.
- Explorers for 14 to 18 year olds encourages young people to think and plan for themselves whilst taking part in activities such as hiking, camping and the Duke of Edinburgh award. (Run by our affiliate Spitfires Air Explorer Unit.)
The group also runs lots of activities for adult volunteers as well. We're always looking for new assistant leaders to help run our busy programme and supporters to help with fundraising and maintenance. If you think you can help please contact us.
