About Us

1st Garforth Scout Group is a very active Group within Leeds Templars District and part of the Central Yorkshire County.

We currently have six sections with a total of around 120 members:

Beavers

  • Apache Beavers > Monday Night: 6:00 – 7:15
  • Cherokee Beavers > Thursday Night: 6:15 – 7:30

Cubs

  • Eagles Cub Pack > Wednesday Night: 6:00 – 7:30
  • Ravens Cub Pack > Tuesday Night: 6:15 – 7:40

Scouts

  • Burma Scout Troop > Wednesday Night: 7:30 – 9:30
  • Delta Scout Troop > Tuesday Night: 7:45 – 9:30

Each of the sections cover a different age group and provide a full scouting programme for boys and girls within that age group.  Boys and Girls move through the sections until reaching the age of 15 at which time they can move onto the District Explorer Section. Check out our Sections pages for the your age group to see if you would like to join.

We meet in our own Scout HQ built by our own Scout Leaders (Of the Time) and purchased with funds provided by many within the community.

We are still very active at raising funds for the maintenance of our HQ and Equipment and many within and outside the Garforth community have helped us to progress over the years.  We are always on the look out for sponsors for our many projects, if you or your company can help us please contact us.

The Group is run by an Executive Committee. For more information on the work of the Exec, or if you are interested in getting involved, click here.

I hope you enjoy the site, please feel free to drop us a line with any comments you have, any improvements we could make, or if you have someone who is interested in joining us.
