About Us

Founded by Ken Marlow, the 2nd Rothwell Scout Group have been meeting in the ‘hut’ behind the Salvation Army Citadel in New Street, Rothwell, since 1957.

The Group consists of:

  • Beavers 6-8 years
  • Cubs 8-10.5 years
  • Scouts 10.5 – 14 years

Each week learning new skills through having fun. Learning about the outdoors. Following in the footsteps of our Founder Robert Baden-Powell. We have laws, a promise, uniforms and belong to the biggest Youth organisation in the world!

Our activities include:
Water slides to hiking, camping and climbing, map reading and orienteering,  cooking, night hikes, handicraft, knot work, patrol camps, clouds and stars , canoeing, first aid, go–karting, forestry, challenge badges, sleepovers, international camps, abseiling, games, computers, tracking, making new friends, jamborees, parades, public speaking, swimming, radio, pioneering, archery, navigation, incident training and entertaining.

And thats just the start…

“The 2nd Rothwell Group is like a big family. The “Point” is so that young people develop mentally, physically and spiritually, having fun and by experiencing a wide range of activities. This training often helps them to be self-reliant, develop skills of working as part of a team and leadership that have helped many gain jobs later in life.”
