Why Volunteer?
Scouting in the UK is growing, we currently have over 30,000 young people on our waiting lists unable to join simply because we don't have enough adult volunteers.
Some of the reasons for volunteering:
To give something back to the community.
To develop your own skills.
To support the Leaders.
To enjoy and rediscover the adventure for yourself.
How can I help??
Volunteering is very flexible, from an hour a week to an hour every 6 months. There are many ways you can help, here are just a few: Section Leader, Section Assistant, Occasional Helper, Trustee, Adult Support Team.
2nd Thatcham Scout Group is one of the most active scouting groups in Berkshire and we're growing.
With a programme designed for 6 to 14 year olds, it's never too late to join the group. With nights away, trips and outdoor adventures, we've a full programme for everyone.
If you already have a friend with us, ask them to tell their leader you wish to join us.

  30 scouts, 4 explorers and 14 adults spent eight days on an expedition to Jersey this summer. Staying at the Jersey Scout Centre, scouts tried blokarting, coasteering, sea kayaking, cycling and lots of trips to the beach. The weather was sunny and warm! The troop plans to return in 2016.



At 2nd Thatcham we pride ourselves in our ability to deliver an exciting and active programme to all our members. Using the Scout Association's badges and awards scheme, we run a progressive programme from age 6 to 14 which includes nights away, adventurous activities, personal and life skills, community projects, leadership and social skills, team work and many other fun things.
Throughout the world there are about 30 million members, in the UK alone nearly half a million and at 2nd Thatcham over 200. We're the biggest scout group in the area and our young people get to meet and enjoy life with friends that are often at a different school, or are a different age.
