Welcome to 4th Braintree Scout Group


4th Braintree Scout Group is located in the market town of Braintree. Situated in Essex midway between Chelmsford and Colchester, Braintree is home to around 50,000 residents.

Each section meets weekly providing a wide range of programmed activities. The meetings take place both inside and outdoors giving our young people a variety of life experiences. Events and camps are run throughout the year to consolidate skills developed during weekly meetings.

The group was established in 1968 and has over 250 members making it the largest Scout Group in the County. Each week we deliver Scouting to 3 Beaver Colonies, 3 Cub Packs and 2 Scout Troops. Anyone aged between 14 to 18 is welcome to contact and join the District Explorer section.

If you are thinking about Scouting and wondering if Scouts is right for you, take a look at the information on our Why Scouts page. More information is available in the relevant age-related sections.

We are always looking for volunteers to help with our section nights, events and committee. If you are wondering how you could help, check out our volunteer pages. Don't worry, we will support you to develop skills and offer training along the way!

We are a very active group with camps and activities happening all the time. We aim to develop young people with #SkillsForLife, whilst having fun and making new friends. See what we have been up to on our social media pages. Decided Scouts is for you? Visit our joining page to sign up.

Welcome to 4th Braintree Paul 😊😊

Now we have released our Contingent branding for the 25 World Scout Jamboree into the wild, we’re calling on all Scouts to help us name the tiger!

It’s time to think big and we are setting your section the challenge of coming up with a creative gender-neutral name.

The winners will win goods from Scout Storee to the value of £100 and a framed print of the tiger with your winning name, signed by Chief Scout Bear Grylls.

Why not run a section meeting with an international or World Scout Jamboree theme, alongside choosing a name for the tiger? We have lots of ideas in our blog.

The closing date for entries is midnight on Saturday 3 July 2021.
