Welcome to the Staplehurst Scout Troop information page!


Scouts is currently the oldest section at Staplehurst Scout Group and is open to children aged between 11 and 14 years old.

The Scout Troop meets weekly during school term time on a Friday between 7.30 p.m. and 9.30 p.m. at Staplehurst Scout Hut. Due to current social distancing guidelines, all of our meetings are taking place virtually.

Important update regarding Coronavirus (Covid-19)

In line with Government advice, the Scout Association has reverted England's readiness level to 'Red'. This unfortunately means that no face to face Scouting activities can currently take place. We will communicate further with parents as soon as we receive updates from the Scout Association (subject to Government guidance). We will continue to offer virtual meetings throughout this period and details of these will be sent out to all parents.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our young people, parents and guardians for their continued enthusiasm and involvement during these very strange times.


Subs are currently £3.50 per week per child. If you have two or more children in the Group, subs are £3.50 per week for the first child and £2.00 per week for every additional child.

Space availability

Please contact us if you would like to enquire about your son or daughter joining our Troop!
