Scouting Connections
We are part of Bassetlaw District and Nottinghamshire County Scouts.

There are around 28 million Scouts worldwide coming from 161 different countries, including more than 400,000 in the UK. 

There have been many well known faces in Scouting.  These include the current Chief Scout Bear Grylls and the Duchess of Cambridge, showing that Scouting has something for everybody - including adults.
Welcome to 1st Clarborough & District Scout Group

We meet every Thursday evening in Clarborough Village Hall with meetings for different sections throughout the evening.  We enjoy a wide variety of activities ranging from art and crafts to hiking and camping.  New members are always welcome to any section - including adult!

  • Beavers

    Founded in 1986, Beaver Scouts are the youngest section of the Scouting family. Their
    activities are based around making things, outdoor activities, singing,
    playing games, going out on visits, investigating nature, listening to
    stories, learning how to be safe and most importantly, making new

  • Cubs

    Cubs is the second section of the Scouting movement, originally
    started in 1916 for younger brothers who wanted a 'look-in'. In nearly
    a century, the section has constantly evolved and adapted its programme
    and methods to meet the changing needs of each generation of young
    people, and these days admits girls as well as boys.

  • Scouts

    Scouts are the third section of the Scouting movement. From the first
    experimental camp for 20 boys in 1907, the movement now has an
    estimated 28 million members worldwide, and in the UK alone there are
    over 499,000 boys and girls involved in Scouting.

  • Explorers

    Explorers are the fourth section of the Scouting movement. Right from the time of Baden-Powell, there have been arrangements for
    young people who wanted to continue after their time in the Scout
    Section, and in 1967, Venture Scouts were formed from the existing
    Senior Scout and Rover Scout Sections.During the late 1990s we
    decided that, to meet the changing needs of young people, there should
    be two sections for the over-14s: Explorer Scouts for 14 to
    18-year-olds, and the Scout Network for 18 to 25s.
