Welcome to the 1st Sittingbourne (Salvation Army) Scout Group

Based in Shortlands Road, serving both Murston and Sittingbourne areas, and part of the Sittingbourne & Milton District, we reformed in 2007, the centenary year of Scouting, after a long absence.

Every week over 60 young people aged 6 – 14 from Murston and Sittingbourne join us to experience everyday adventure and take part in our Scouting programme.

The Group has steadily grown over the last 10+ years, from the hard work and effort of our Leadership team, fully supportive Executive Committee and our Section Leaders.

Scouting is one of the oldest and best known providers of youth services in the world and we very much encourage family participation in our Scout Group, as well as providing quality Scouting to young people of all abilities.

Covid-19 Scouting

Following the Scouts Association readiness levels, we are currently at “Amber” level. We returned to Face-to-Face Scouting on 9th September 2020.  From 4th November 2020 we will be meeting weekly back at the Salvation Army Hall within sectional bubbles.

Bubbles can be 15 young people plus up to 5 leaders.

We are operating a one way system in and out of the hall and meeting times have been revised to allow for cleaning between section meetings.

If you are interested in joining our Group and wish to know more about how we do scouting safely during Covid-19 and see our risk assessments, please contact us using the contact form or email 1st.sittingbournesa.scoutgroup@gmail.com
