Volunteering with our group can mean anything from spending a few minutes every few months on an administrative task to running section meetings. As a leader / assistant we would also offer exciting opportunities for your own development and to gain the most out of Scouting.
We’d love to hear from you if you’d like to help us provide scouts to the children in our area, and would ask you to complete the form at the bottom of this page.
Dunblane Scout Group has played a prominent part in the community over the last forty years and we are part of the Stirling and Trossachs District, one of the four Districts which together form the Forth Region.
We are in the fortunate position to own a purpose built facility in Ochlochy. This comprises of a large meeting hall with a climbing wall, one large committee room, a small committee room, a leaders’ room, a kitchen and extensive storage facilities. The building is fully centrally heated.
The Group have an extensive range of modern camping equipment allowing our members to attend camps on a regular basis.
The Scout Group have three section levels:
- Beavers – age range 6 to 8 years Tuesday / Friday 6.30pm to 7.30pm
- Cubs – age range 8 to 10 ½ years Monday / Wednesday 6.30pm to 8.00pm
- Scouts – age range 10 ½ to 14 years Tuesday 7.45pm to 9.15pm / Thursday 7.30pm to 9.15pm
