Squirrel Scouts are young people aged 4–6 who:
- Master new skills and try new things
- Have fun and go on adventures
- Make new friends
- Are curious about the world around them
- Help others and make a difference, on their own doorsteps and beyond
Every week, they gather in groups called Dreys to hop, skip and jump their way through lots of different games and activities – achieving anything they set their minds to, and having lots of fun along the way. Being a Squirrel Scout is all about fun and friendship while growing and learning. Here are some of the things you’ll get up to with your new friends.
Exploring the great outdoors
You’ll spend lots of time outside with your section. Together, you might build a den, go on a treasurer hunt, or visit a museum.
Trying new activities and learning new things
The most important skills you’ll learn at Scouts, are the ones that will make you feel super strong standing on your own two feet. We call these character skills. They include things like resilience – which means getting back up and trying again – and teamwork, which means mucking in and playing your part. It’s all about having the courage to try new things and learn from them.
Squirrels Scouts work as a team to help other people in their local communities and beyond. Whether they’re changing the whole world or helping a friend take the leap to try something new on a rainy Wednesday night, they always lend a hand.
