The 2nd Nene is one of the largest Scout Groups in the city of Peterborough with over 100 young people taking part in Scouting activities every week.
Scouting offers challenge and adventure to 400,000 young people aged 6-25 in the UK.
We believe in helping our Members fulfill their potential by working in teams, learning by doing and thinking for themselves.
We’re working to make Scouting available to all and we’re passionate about what we do..
Through the adventure of Scouting, young people get to take risks in a safe environment, and have their first taste of responsibility.
We give young people experiences they’ll never forget.
The sort of adventure Scouting offers is the chance to experience something different and the opportunity to challenge yourself.
When a Beaver Scout wakes up the morning after a sleepover, or Cub Scout has just got over her fear of heights by completing her first abseil – that’s adventure..
In Scouting, we provide over 200 activities from abseiling to zorbing (that’s falling out of the sky in a foam ball in case you were wondering).
If we don’t have an instructor who can help we can normally find someone who can.
But Scouting isn’t just about activities for their own sake.
We encourage our young people to feel the buzz of the challenge and then reflect on what that means.
Did they have fun? Do they feel more confident?
Would they do it again?
All this is made possible by the efforts of 100,000 voluntary adult leaders.
With award winning training and one-to-one support, we make sure that each one of our volunteers gets to make best use of their skills and talents.
It’s something different from the norm, and that why a lot of people like it.
In fact, it’s what’s made us the largest co-educational youth Movement in the country.
