Scouts

'Scouting has given me a fantastic opportunity to do lots of activities and things that people who are not in Scouts don’t get to do. It’s about having fun with good friends. I’ve just been selected to go the 2015 World Scout Jamboree in Japan and that’s going to be awesome.’

Meeting on Tuesday nights from 7.30pm to 9.30pm, Kiernan, Ben, Steven and Aine bring their own unique brand of Scouting to 18 eager Scouts. Their current programme makes great use of the tremendous facilities offered by the Scout Den; our state of the art, multi-staged climbing wall, complete with overhang; climbing frame; volley ball court; and outdoor abseiling wall. We also make great use of Glendale Lodge as a hike/weekend basecamp.

Recent Troop highlights included a silver award in the 2012 All-Ireland Scoutcraft Competition - Phoenix Challenge, 2012 Annual Camp to Kandersteg, Switzerland, and three Scouts completing the 2013 Art O'Neill Challenge.

The Troop is actively recruiting new members (especially girls!) between the ages of 12 and 13 years olf age. Call in on a Tuesday night and give it a go! Forthcomign events include - annual Whit Camp, and and Summer Camp to Kent, England in July.
