Kinvara Scout Group

Kinvara Scout Group: 28th Galway Kinvara scouts will be resuming in September and are looking forward to an active scout year. With nearly 90 youth members, both boys and girls, from age 6 to 19 years old. Beavers, ( 6-8yrs), meet on Fridays; cubs (9-11yrs) on Mondays, scouts (12-15yrs) on Wednesday evenings all in Kinvara Community Centre. Ventures (15-17yrs) and Rovers (18+) meet on Wednesdays in Kilcornan. Scouting is about developing young people to be independent, balanced, confident and responsible adults with problem solving skills. Scouting involves learning by doing, working in teams, youth leadership, lots of fun and of course outdoor adventures, such as hillwalking, backwoods, orienteering, pioneering, paddling and camping. All of our sections went on camps this summer and had a blast. Annual scout registration for all sections will take place at KCC on 9th Sept at 18.30. If new youth members are interested please contact to see if there is space in the relevant section. New members, even in older sections do not need any scouting experience. We are also recruiting new adult leaders as we cannot run an effective programme without volunteers. No scout experience is necessary as training is provided. Naturally, all adults working with young people must undergo Garda vetting.
