Wantage Scout Group

We are a thriving group based in the centre of Wantage. We are the amalgamation of two groups, 1st and 4th King Alfred, and are looking to meet the growing needs of Scouting in Wantage.

Our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts are very active in the outdoors, and frequently enjoy hikes, camps and bike rides in the surrounding countryside.
We have a two thriving Beavers Colonies, Cub Packs and Scout Troops, all of which meet at our District Headquarters on Springfield Road, Wantage during term time:

Beaver Scouts – Age 6 to 8
1st KA – Thursday– 6pm to 7.15pm
4th KA – Monday – 5.30 to 6.45pm

Cub Scouts – Age 8 to 10.5
1st KA – Tuesdays – 6.30 to 8.15pm
4th KA – Fridays – 6.15 to 8.00pm

Scouts – Age 10.5 to 14
1st KA Scouts – Wednesday – 6.45pm to 9.00pm
4th KA Scouts – Monday – 7pm to 9pm
All the leaders are volunteers, and we rely upon occasional support from parents throughout the year.
For further information on how to join, or if you would like to volunteer as an adult helper, please contact the Group Scout Leader at WantageGSL@kascouts.org.uk

Please note that there is currently a waiting list for each section.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
