1st Ightham Scout Group is a proud and active Scout Group, which began in 1912. It provides all the opportunities and activities to young people that Scouting has to offer, with access to resources which are difficult to obtain outside of the Scout Association. Run by a team of dedicated volunteers, this Group has shown over a hundred years of dedication to providing the best Scouting we can for the children in our care.

We currently run Beavers, Cubs, Scout and a very active Young Leader Section, for nearly 100 young people from Ightham and the surrounding villages. We welcome both boys and girls aged 5.5 to 18, and adults who wish to join the movement. We also have very strong links to the District Explorer Scout Units for young people aged 14 to 18.

Our members enjoy a varied programme of activities to enable them to achieve badges and awards, and are offered opportunities to attend group and district events such as trips, themed activity days, sleepovers and camps.

Our current priority is to £550,000 to replace our very old and dilapidated Group HQ to provide us with the premises we need to deliver the quality Scouting our young people want and deserve. With your help we can achieve this for Cubs and Scouts now and all the future generations in Ightham, Plaxtol, Stone Street, Shipbourne, Dunks Green and Roughway.

With the Scout Group being over 100 yars old, and it would be wonderful to be able to move out of our present shed so that we can continue to serve the needs of yung people for the next 100 years in a fully modern purpose built building  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j9J-OWZTiI8
