Squirrels are new newest and youngest members of our Scouting Family.
Squirrels offers the best of Scouts – learning by doing and getting into the great outdoors – combined with early years best practice of storytelling, routine, and play. It’s a huge leap forward for us: our first new age range in 35 years. And it is a key part of our response to the challenges facing young people.
Squirrels comes at a time when inequalities in our society are all too clear. So we’re:
Helping 4 and 5 year olds gain key skills like communication, teamwork and resilience through structured play and story telling.
Giving them a sense of achievement with great role models and a positive environment encouraging kindness and aspiration.
Strengthening the bond between parents or carers and their children by encouraging family volunteering
Creating closer, more connected communities with volunteering at the heart
