Scouting offers fun and friendship, challenge and everyday adventure to 400,000 girls and boys across the UK. We have a positive impact on young people, our 100,000 adult volunteers and the communities in which we live.
The 4th Falmouth Scout Group was first formed sometime between 1910 and 1915 but closed during WWII. The group re-opened in 1950 and in 2010 we celebrated our own Diamond Jubilee – 60 years of ‘continuous’ Scouting.
We’ve been connected to the Parish Church in Falmouth for most of our history and we’re very proud of our association with this historical Church in the heart of the community.
We don’t just go camping on our own, often we are out and about with other Scout groups from all over Cornwall, at County events organised by Cornwall Scouts or District events.
At 4th we’re very lucky to have our own Scouting campsite on the outskirts of Penryn and we try and make use of it as much as possible, especially during the warmer months. – The site is also available to hire by other Scout Groups, youth groups or private events.
Offering over 200 different activities from abseiling and archery to drama, street sports and water zorbing, Scouting helps 6-25 year olds grow in confidence, achieve their full potential and become active members of their communities.
This is only possible through the efforts of 100,000 volunteers who also enjoy the fun and friendship of Scouting. Trusted by nearly a million parents each week, the Movement welcomes members from all backgrounds, faiths and cultures. Special emphasis is placed on bringing the Scouting programme to young people who currently do not benefit, particularly those in inner cities, those in rural areas and other disadvantaged groups. The Scout Association is a registered charity in the UK and
part of a worldwide movement of 31 million Scouts working for peace and global friendship.
