Braid District was formed on 1st April 2012 following a merger of Morningside and Blackford Districts.
For our youngest members, Beavers is all about having fun, making friends, and learning new skills. Beavers meet weekly to try out a huge range of activities, which might include science experiments, crafts, den building and more. We also go on day trips, sleepovers and camps, giving many Beavers a real adventure - their first night away from home!
Suitable for ages 6 - 8 years.
Joining Cubs opens up a new world of fun and adventure for girls and boys through access to a massive range of exciting activities including camping, adventurous activities, such as climbing and sailing, plus creative and cultural pursuits. At weekly meetings, Cubs are encouraged to challenge themselves to try new things and are rewarded for effort, teamwork and leadership.
Suitable for ages 8 - 10.5 years
From getting involved in the local community to travelling on international camps, Scouts have plenty of opportunities to develop independence and a sense of adventure. We encourage Scouts to have a say in planning and developing the activities and projects they want to take part in, giving them the chance to put their teamwork and leadership skills into practice.
Suitable for ages: 10.5 - 14 years.
Each group charges a fee (called subscriptions or subs) to cover the costs of running regular meetings. This covers venue hire, insurances and materials for activities. There're sometimes extra charges for special activities, camps and events. We try to keep our subs as low as possible. so that anyone can come to Scouts. If you need help paying subs, please speak to your leader.
