How did Squirrel Scouting begin?
The Scout Association has recently undertaken several pilot projects with 4-5 years olds. As these have been well received and have met the developmental needs of the participants, enquiries are now being made to investigate if there is any interest in opening a Drey section within Ingleton or Settle Groups. National priority will be given to areas with an Index of Multiple Deprivation of 1-5, as well as Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities, so any submission may not be accepted yet. The section will have an age-appropriate, flexible programme of badges and fun activities based around themes such as Stories, Cookery, Exploring, etc. If this is something that might interest you, a family member, a friend or someone in your community, do get in touch through the contact page as soon as possible.
