18th Purley Socially Distanced Scouting

Tonight, we returned to face to face socially distanced Scouting. We made the most of the outdoor space and had a game of footgolf and chair football. Afterwards, we retreated back into the hut to start learning sign language. Was great to be back to Scouting after many months on Zoom.

18th Purley Leaders

Croydon Scouts

We are always on the lookout for Leaders to support our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. We are an established Croydon Scouting Troop, having been formed in 1937 with around 50 members at our HQ in Sanderstead, South Croydon. We have an Eco friendly, solar powered Scout hut with a large private outdoor space.

Being a Leader is extremely rewarding and full training is given. Please have a look at our Volunteering Page for more details on how you can support us and help Young People achieve new #SkillsForLife.

Currently, we are on the lookout for Leaders to support our Cub Pack which meets on Mondays during term time from 6:30pm to 8:00pm.
