Our sessions run weekly on term-time evenings and take place at our meeting places in the St John’s area of Tunbridge Wells, out and about in our local community or at our brilliant local Scout Campsite, Adamswell.
From geo-caching to archery and from campfire cooking to micro lighting, our young people get the opportunity to try an incredible range of activities and to learn a whole host of new skills.
As well as taking part in Scout adventure days, camps and international jamborees, our group plays an active role in making a positive contribution to our Tunbridge Wells Scout District and our local community, getting involved in local initiatives and celebrations including Remembrance Sunday, charity sleep outs, fundraisers and community events.

From age 14-18, young people continue their journey in scouting connected to one of the Explorer Scout units across Tunbridge Wells District which meet on various days throughout the week.
We welcome the support of Young Leaders and participants of the Duke of Edinburgh Award interested in volunteering to support our leadership teams.
Our group is run by Group Scout Leaders Nicole Batchelor and Kate Sharpe, supported by an enthusiastic and committed team of 30 adults made up of Section Leaders running the programme and Charity Trustees keeping things running behind the scenes on our Executive Committee. All are volunteers.
