Our Beavers showed great teamwork at the weekend and took home the first place trophy for the District Tug of War. The day included groups from across the District including Beavers, Cubs & Scouts.

Well done to all.

4th Hythe now consist of 5 Scouting Sections from Squirrels aged 4 years old to Explorers. Every section are extremely successful and are at capacity with 100 young people across the Group & 50 on our waiting list.
Due to this success we have had to temporarily close our waiting lists for Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers.

If you are able to volunteer your time as a Leader or in another key role within the Group we will be able to ensure your young person has a place in the Group.

Our Beaver colony enjoyed their first ever camp at the weekend, joined by our Cub pack who haven’t been able to camp due to Covid restriction.

They had a fun packed weekend at our Scout Hut on Shore Road including games and camp fires.

We are pleased to welcome our newest and youngest section to the Group, our Squirrel Drey are for those young people aged 5-6 years old. For more information and joining our waiting list please visit their page.

This new section brings our Group to 5 sections and its only possible with your help. All our leaders are volunteers and we thank you all for your dedication to keep the Group strong and healthy.


We need you for us to succeed

Since our fundraising committee was formed in 2016, we have raised an outstanding £90,000. We are looking for passionate people who are up for a challenge. We have now secured our Scout Hut from erosion, strengthened our boathouse & had our toilets completely refurbished, among other projects. We have more projects which need funds so we can improve our facilities and equipment our young persons will benefit from.

Adult volunteers

Volunteering in Scouting is easy and flexible – how much time you give is completely up to you.
