Welcome to St John’s Scouts! We are an active and adventurous Scout Group based in the heart of Royal Tunbridge Wells. Each week over 100 young between the ages of 6 and 14 meet on an evening to take part in a enjoyable programme. We are currently made up of two beaver colonies (6-8 years), two cub packs (8-10.5 years) and one scout unit (10.5-14 years).
We are a member of Royal Tunbridge Wells Scout District and take part in a number of district events which take place throughout the year.
The group has a number of leaders from a wide variety of background. We are all enthusiastic about offering Scouting to as many young people as possible.
