St Albans District consists of over 2000 SQUIRRELS, Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.
As a district we have over 300 Explorer Scouts in 11 Sections and a growing Network Scout group.
All these young people are supported by nearly 900 adult volunteers, 500 of whom hold Scout warrant qualifications.
We meet in and around St Albans
St Albans is a District in the Hertfordshire Scout County. Scouting in St Albans is divided into Groups, each with at least one Beaver Colony, one Cub Pack and one Scout Troop. We are opening Squirrel Dreys across the District and into Groups where the number of volunteers allow. These Dreys, colonies, packs and troops are sometimes called the sections. Our Explorers are members of units that meet in different venues across the District. We also have a Network unit who meet less formally e.g. when they are home from university or when they wish to go to an event. Our Active Support unit provides social events for adults and a pool of volunteers who help at, perhaps, one or two events per year.
We usually refer young people to their closest Group because that often works best for the young person, their family and the Group. However, sometimes we offer a place further away if that is where space is available or if the young person has a reason for wanting to join a particular group.
