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.

Hi Parents, we are rapidly approaching a time where 4th Braintree can return to Face 2 Face Scouting, but before we can we need your help. On Wednesday 7th April, we emailed all Scout Families to let you know about our future plans, and also asking you to complete some important tasks.
Please can we ask that you check your inboxes for this email and to complete the survey. This survey must be completed so that your young person can return when we restart Face 2 Face Scouting.
Thank you to everyone that has already completed the survey. #4thBraintree #face2facescouting
