How To Join

How our waiting list works

Our waiting list covers all 4 sections in our group (This includes WOSESU)

We have 3 set intakes a year (September, January and Easter)

The youngest we can take young people is as follows: Beavers 6, Cubs 8, Scouts 10, Explorers 14

For example:

Tom is 10 at Easter and his Mum has just placed him on the waiting list for Scouts.

There are currently around 11 children the same age as Tom who are already on the waiting list however his place will change as younger people who have been on the waiting list turn 10 or he may go up as older ones become ineligible.

(e.g. he may be 12th at Easter. If we take 3 new Scouts in, he would be 9th on the list however by September 5 more children turn 10 who have been on the waiting list longer than Tom, then he would be 14th on the list in September)
