1st Samford Valley Scouts (Holbrook)

Young People - Are You ready to begin your adventure?

Come and join our scout troop. There are five sections you can join, depending on your age. The activities and opportunities vary but what is the same is that each will empower you to make friends, learn skills and try new things. For ages 6 - 14.

Become a Volunteer - There are many ways you can kick-start your adventure, as a young person, parent or adult volunteer. Our volunteers get involved on their terms and not all roles involve working with young people. If you can give a little time (or a lot) to help improve young lives in your community, we'd love to hear from you.

1st Samford Valley Scouts are based in Holbrook.  Most of our scouts come from Holbrook and the surrounding villages such as Stutton, Tattingstone, Wherstead and Chelmondiston.

Please contact us for more details.

Experience of including people with special educational needs and disabilities

The Specialist Advisers are a national team who support District, County and Regional Scouting to ensure it is inclusive, accessible and as diverse as the communities in which we live.

As a team we have a range of professional and Scouting expertise; and each possess a genuine passion and enthusiasm for supporting Scouting For All. Practically in each of our regions we can offer training; support and guidance, and strategic input.

Areas the team can support include:

  • Additional Needs (disabilities, learning difficulties, challenging behaviour)
  • Community engagement 
  • Gender equality
  • LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender)
  • Socio-economic inclusion
