Welcome to the website of the 5th Canvey Island Air Scout Group.
We are a very friendly Group and were founded on the 1st October 1982. We have 3 sections that are all open to both girls and boys:
Beaver Scouts 5 3/4 - 8 years of age, Cubs 7 1/2 - 11 years of age and Scouts 10 1/2 - 14 years of age. We have a partnership agreement with Night Hawk Air Explorers which enables our young people to continue in scouting up to 18 years of age.
Alll sections meet on a Thursday evening at Our Lady of Canvey & English Martyrs church, 224 Long Road, SS8 0JS this is really good for communication between the sections and helps the young people to have a smooth transistion throughout the group.
We have a strong Young Leader scheme for those Explorers who wish to undertake training to become leaders and work with the younger sections.
We are Air Scouts, which means we have an interest in air activities, which gives our young people the opportunity to experience air related activities as well as scouting activities.
We achieved RAF recognition in 2008, which is a great achievement.This does mean however that we expect a high commitiment to the group, including uniform and disicpline.
The aim of the Association is to promote the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential, as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities.
The Method of achieving the Aim of the Association is by providing an enjoyable and attractive scheme of progressive training, based on the Scout Promise and Law, guided by adult leadership.
If you are interested in joining us, then please either fill in the contact us form or come down to meet the team on a Thursday and we will be only to pleased to meet you.
Paul - Group Scout Leader
