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.

Another wonderful night of activities for our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. 50 young people in total across the three sections tonight, over 70 badges presented including more chief Scout Bronze and Silver awards. New young people, lots of returning faces, and all itching to return for their next section night. Roll on Friday to end our first week back! #face2facescouting #4thBraintree #beaverscouts #Cubs #scouts ... See MoreSee Less

Fantastic again, great to see 4th Braintree Scout Group back in action. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of our Leaders behind the scenes, I know it’s not been an easy journey. Proud to be Clare the Chair 😊😊 #simplythebest #runoncake

The boys loved being back face to face. Thanks again for everything you have done and continue to do 😊

Must have been over 100 badges I'd guess, I gave out more than 70 to the Cubs ❤️. They've all been working so hard over lockdown. Despite all the difficulties 4th have risen to the unusual challenges thrown at it and come out just as strong and brilliant on the other side. Love being back face to face and planning for the future 💙💛💙💛
