Welcome to the 1st Whitchurch Scout Group, Cardiff. We are a popular and active Scout Group which believes in promoting the aim of the scout association:
"to promote the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential, as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities."
The group is made up from three sections:
Beaver Scouts (6-8 years)Cub Scouts (8-10½ years)Scouts (10½-14 years)
We are coeducation so all members both boys and girls work together to meet the aims of Scouting through a single programme.
