scoutsThe 14th Offaly Kilcormac Scout Group was founded in 2012. It is part of the Slieve Bloom Scout County of Scouting Ireland (Laois, Offaly and North Tipperary). The Group consists of a Beaver Colony (6 – 8 year olds), a Cub Pack (8 – 11 year olds), a Scout Troop (12 to 16 year olds).

Scouts offers a varied and exciting programme in each of its sections.

We encourage an environment of discovery, whether about the world around us, the people around us, ourselves and others around the world through inter-cultural activities.

What are Beaver Scouts?

Beaver Scouts are the youngest section. They range from 6 to 8 years of age. It’s where we start the adventure and the emphasis is maximum fun. Don’t let our cute factor fool you as we can be as adventurous and daring as any other Scouts. While we are having fun we still get to play with others so that we know how to get along with other people.

 

What are Cub Scouts?

Cub Scouts range from 9 to 11 years of age. The Cub Scout adventure is full of fun and exploration. We are all about finding out about new things and new ways of having fun. We learn to become more responsible because we want to do more things like go on longer camps and lead activities. Cub Scouts are organised into small groups called Sixes and guess what, there are 6 Cub Scouts in them!

 

What are Scouts?
Scouting started out of the Scout section so it stands to reason that we have some serious fun in Scouts. The Spirit of Adventure is what drives the Scout Section to challenge you to try new things encourage Scouts to try to be more responsible, try more things as a team and even more leadership. The Scout events include the National Adventure Skills Challenge and the Phoenix Challenge.
