The Scouts has started a new provision for four and five year olds called Squirrels, to help young people gain skills for life at a time when it matters most and where it’s most needed.
This new programme has opened in 200+ areas across the UK throughout autumn 2021. In Worthing, we have opened our first Squirrel Drey but we still need adult volunteers to help so we can open many more.
Benefits of joining Squirrels
Squirrels is a completely new provision for 4–5 year olds. There are plenty of reasons to get stuck in, as Squirrels gives young people the chance to:
- Make friends
- Have fun outdoors
- Learn new things
- Earn badges through fun activities
