Your child will be one of 28 million Scouts in 216 countries worldwide and will become one of our family, the experiences young people have as a Scout are likely to stay with them for the rest of their lives. This guide is intended to help you and your child get the most out of their time in scouting with us. Our Group consists of three sections; Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts and Sea Scouts. The Section Leaders, along with their Assistants and parent support run the activities for our young people. The Executive Committee led by the Chairperson is important in supporting the Group with administration, planning and organising fundraising events. As Group Scout Leader I oversee the running of the group and provide support to all the leaders. I can be contacted at gsl@norwich16thseascouts.co.uk. There are a variety of roles within the group, from helping at weekly section nights to administration, planning and fundraising. We are always looking for additional volunteers, if you feel you can help, no matter how much time you may have to give, please do not hesitate to contact me or discuss with your section leader. There are also scouting opportunities for young people aged 14 – 18 as Explorer Scouts and Young Leaders, for more information please speak to me (GSL) or check out the Scout website at www.scouts.org.uk
