There will be a public meeting held in Kilkelly Family Resource Centre on Thursday 15th of August @ 7.30pm.
We are currently in the process of potentially setting up a Scouts club in the Kilkelly/Kilmovee/Urlar/Glann area and therefore are inviting members of the public to attend.
2 leaders from Scouts Ireland Organisation will be present that evening to answer any questions or queries. In order for the club to be successful, we are also looking for anyone interested in coming on board as a leader to establish the group.
Full training will be provided by the Scouts Ireland Organisation. If you have any queries please contact Laura – Community Development Worker – by email: email@example.com or by telephone 094 – 964 9814 (Kilmovee Office) or 094 937 0653 (Kilkelly Office). We look forward to seeing you there, in the meantime here is some information to have a look at.
Scouts cater for boys and girls starting at 6-year-old’s (Beaver Scouts), who then progress to Cub Scouts from 9 – 11-year-old’s with Scouts from 12 – 15-year-old’s, from there there is also Venture Scouts (15 – 17) & Rover Scouts (18 – 20)
Beaver Scouts is for our youngest members. They range in age from 6 to 8 but don’t let their age fool you! They have fun by trying new things like camping.
Cub Scouts continues the Adventure and is for 9 to 11 year old’s. The Cubs Scouts get to plan their adventures, they care for their community & the environment.
Scouts are 12 to 15 years of age. Scouts get to do more for themselves and have more of their own adventures that they get to choose.
Venture Scouts is from 15 to 17 years of age. It provides challenges and adventure that will get you working with others to make a difference in your community.
Rover Scouts is the final programme section and is for 18 to 20-year-olds. Rovers are adults, looking to bring adventure, entertainment and service into everything they do.
The Scouts have a huge movement throughout the world and have been in Ireland since 1908.
One of Scouting’s fundamental creeds is to encourage the physical, intellectual, emotional, social, and spiritual development of young people so that they may achieve their full potential and, as responsible citizens, to improve society. Well, why not join us and help your local young people achieve this development while having a great time doing it?
If this sound’s like something you would like to get your family involved in then we would need your help to establish & set up the club with the assistance of Scouting Ireland please attend the aforementioned meeting.
