More about us
10th Perthshire Scout Group was established way back in 1909. It is testament to the enthusiasm and commitment of our young people, leaders and volunteers that well over a century later we are still going strong, now welcoming as many as 250 girls and boys aged 6 to 18 to Beaver, Cub, Scout and Explorer groups every week.
We are led by a hard working team of male and female volunteer leaders and supported by a great group of young leaders. The team organise fun, challenge and life-changing adventure for our young people, with events including weekly meetings, day trips, weekend camps and even the opportunity to travel abroad to international events.
Typically, all groups meet weekly during school term time. The groups are based in our Scout Hall, but visits to local attractions and institutions are regular features on our calendar, with the occasional trip further afield too. Highlights of our calendar include scaling the climbing wall at Perth College, visiting our local fire station, cycling around Loch Leven and attending a pantomime in Edinburgh.
In addition to weekly activities, there are regular camps, starting with short overnight camps for our Beavers, often indoors, and extending to large scale week long events in other parts of Great Britain for our Scouts. We know some of our younger members can be wary of staying away from home, so we start with tiny adventures which give our young people the confidence to take part in longer, more exciting trips.
