The Scouts organisation has several sections: Beavers for ages 6 to 8 years; Cubs for ages 8 to 10 years; Scouts for ages from 10 to 14 years; Explorers for young adults; Networkers for ages from 18 to 25 years who may also be Leaders, Assistants or part of their local Scout Fellowship. 

If you would like to help re-start the Cubs and/or run the Ogmore Down Scout group, perhaps to prepare refreshments or assist with activities, your contribution would be welcomed and much appreciated.

The Scout Association has a clear purpose which is:

"To help young people achieve their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potentials as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international community."

Scouting achieves its purpose and works well when young people enjoy "learning by doing" in partnership with adults.  They do this by:

Taking part in a variety of activities
Exploring the outdoors
Participating in teams
Taking responsibility

The three principles which underpin Scouting are:

Duty to self
Duty to others
Duty to God

Scouting succeeds when it is:

Fun
Attractive to young people
Fulfilling for adult members
Trusted by parents and carers
Valued by society
