Skills for Life for Girls and Boys aged 4 to 14 yrs

Created with Sketch.

Welcome to
“1st A&L”

1st Aylburton and Lydney Scout Group is one of the oldest Groups registered in the District. We are a close-knit Group, with all the sections thriving and a varied programme.


We encourage parents to be involved and maintain regular communication with families by termly newsletter, lively parents evenings and Group activities.


The summer term is our favourite because the weekly meetings are then held in Lydney Deer Park, the District Camp site.

For more information about Scouting in the Lydney area please contact us via this website.

The Scouting that we offer:

The Scouting Programme is based around three main themes: outdoor and adventure, world, and skills. Scouting is offered in aged based sections with activities in each of the themes tailored to suit our four sections.

Aged 4 to 5yrs old

The Squirrel Drey is the newest and youngest section of our Scout Group. 4–5-year-olds can really benefit from our activities. We believe that by offering opportunities at this early age, inspiring a sense of wonder, fun and curiosity, we can have a long-lasting, positive impact on young people’s lives


Aged 6 to 8yrs old

The Beaver Colony is the second youngest section of our Scout Group. They enjoy all that Scouting has to offer; being introduced to outdoor activities, having the opportunity to be creative, explore their local community and experience the excitement of a Beaver Scout Sleepover with their friends.


Aged 8 – 10½yrs old

The Cub Pack is the third section of our Scout Group from 8 to 10 ½. For Cubs, excitement and adventure are key. Their programme offers a huge variety of activities. includings camps and residential experiences.


Aged 10½ – 14yrs old

The Scout Troop is the senior section in our Scout Group. In the Scout Troop young people build and develop their confidence, sense of adventure and hone their outdoor skills as well as their creativity. They are offered the chance to put these skills into practice in their community, at camps and on international trips if they wish.
