Scouts are the fourth section of the Scouting movement. From the first experimental camp for 20 boys in 1907, the movement now has an estimated 28 million members worldwide, and in the UK alone there are over 499,000 boys and girls involved in Scouting. An increase in adult volunteers means that more and more young people are now able to take part in their own big adventure.
8th Gillingham has two Scout troops, catering for those aged 10½ to 14 years old. The Olympians, run by Joe, meet on Tuesday evenings between 6:30pm and 8:30pm. The Titans, also run by Joe, meet on Friday evenings between 7:30pm and 9:30pm.
