To enroll your child in 1st Tanworth in Scout Group please complete and submit the form linked here

If a place is not immediately available in the section appropriate for your child's age, we will add their name to our waiting list and let you know when a place becomes available. It is never too early to put your child's name down for Beavers and you stand a better chance of them starting Beavers in Tanworth at the age of 6 if you apply for a place very early.

The age ranges for the different sections are:

  • Beavers age 6 to 8
  • Cubs age 8 to 10½
  • Scouts 10½ to 14

We only have one waiting list for all sections so if you join the Beavers waiting list at the age of 7 and no space becomes available you will automatically roll over to the Cubs waiting list and then Scouts if no place becomes available in Cubs. We may also be able to find your child a place with a different local group if no places are available at Tanworth in Arden Scouts.

You can join the waiting list at any age so if your daughter is currently a Brownie and you think she would rather move onto Scouts than Guides apply as early as possible. (Make sure you let us know that is what you want to do so we don't reserve her a place at Cubs!) Girls leave Brownies at age 10 but Scouts start at age 10½ so there would be at least a 6 month wait. Preference for places is given to children moving up through the group so Cubs moving into Scouts will have priority over names from the waiting list.

All sections have a parent rota with a parent helping out at each meeting. We like to invite parents to help at meeting where they can contribute best so please tell us about your occupation & hobbies so you can invite you to meetings that fit your skills & interests.
