Squirrels are the youngest members of the Scout family made up of girls and boys aged 4 to 5. Easily recognised by their red tops, they think big, try new things and have fun.

Young people can join Squirrels in the three months leading up to their fourth birthday.

A Squirrel’s time in the ‘drey’ is packed full of fun, games, and activities as they hop, skip and jump their way through anything they do. No two weeks are the same: exploring the great outdoors, learning new things, and even helping others in their own way.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
