Are you interested in joining in? Then read on.. and watch!
We offer over 200 different activites, from Archery to Zorbing (that's rolling down a hill in a big beach ball, in case you were wondering!). If we haven't got an instructor that can run a particular activity, we can probably find one somewhere!
But we don't just do activities for activities sake - we encourage our members to feel the buzz of the challenge, and then reflect on what it means to them; did they enjoy it? would they do it again? would they recommend it to others?
We have thousands of young people in Suffolk joining in with all this, supported by over 1000 adult helpers.. but thats not enough, we need more as we are always expanding!

Beaver Scouts are young people usually aged between 6 and 8 years old and belong to the first and youngest Section in the Scouting family. They can join Beaver Scouts in the 3 months leading up to their 6th birthday. When they are ready, they can move on up to Cub Scouts between 7 years 6 months and 8 years 6 months.
Beaver Scouts wear distinctive turquoise sweatshirts and enjoy making friends, playing games, going on visits and helping others. They usually meet together once a week in a Beaver Scout Colony.
Debenham Beaver Scout Colony also organise Sleepovers. These are often the first time a young person spends a night away from home. They take place in suitable buildings, often Scout centres.
To contact the Debenham Beaver Colony please email: Debenham.Beavers@gmail.com
There are loads of fun things that you can do as a Cub Scout. You will get a chance to try lots of different activities like swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting. If you do them properly you will get a badge which you can wear on your uniform.
Cub Scouts also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme parks or a farm. Sometimes you will be able to go camping with the rest of your Pack. This will mean you sleeping in a tent and doing loads of outdoor activities. Cub Scouts are usually aged between 8 and 10 and a half.
For more information, please contact: Debenham.Cubs@gmail.com
The Scout Section is for young people, usually aged between 10½ and 14 years. A young person can come into the Troop at 10 and may stay until they are 14½ years old. The Scout Troop is the third section in the Scout Group, above Beavers and Cubs.
