About the group

A short introduction to who we are

Scouting offers fun and friendship, challenge and everyday adventure to 400,000 girls and boys across the UK. We have a positive impact on young people, our 100,000 adult volunteers and the communities in which we live.

Offering over 200 different activities from abseiling and archery to drama, street sports and water zorbing, Scouting helps 6-25 year olds grow in confidence, achieve their full potential and become active members of their communities.

This is only possible through the efforts of 100,000 volunteers who also enjoy the fun and friendship of Scouting. Trusted by nearly a million parents each week, the Movement welcomes members from all backgrounds, faiths and cultures.

Special emphasis is placed on bringing the Scouting programme to young people who currently do not benefit, particularly those in inner cities, those in rural areas and other disadvantaged groups. The Scout Association is a registered charity in the UK and part of a worldwide movement of 31 million Scouts working for peace and global friendship.

Scouting in Hatch Warren

Hatch Warren Scout Group has been offering the young people of Hatch Warren, Beggarwood and the nearby villages with quality Scouting since 1994.

Within the group we run activities for members aged between 6 – 14 yrs. This is split between 3 sections:

Each section has its own balanced programme of activities, badges and awards but all offer activities such as:

  • Games & Team Building
  • Camping & Outdoor Events
  • Badgework across a huge range of subjects
  • and much, much more

Over 14yrs?

Pafupi Explorer Scouts (for 14 – 18yrs) are also based in Hatch Warren.

Explorer Scouts are run by Basingstoke West District Scouts and you can find more information here

Aged 18-25?

Whether you’re completely new to Scouts or whether you’ve been with us since you were 4 years old, joining Scouts Network is a great way to meet new people, seek out new challenges and see the world. Because being a grown up shouldn’t mean you have to miss out on all the fun.

Network Scouts bring together young adults in Scouting from both Basingstoke West and Basingstoke East Districts. and you can find more information here
