About Us

If you think Scouting’s just about knots, woggles and big shorts, then be prepared to be surprised. It’s how Richard Branson, Barack Obama and David Beckham got their start in life and you can benefit too.

The 11th Forest Hill is a busy and vibrant scout group in the heart of Honor Oak. We have a beaver colony, cub pack, scout troop and an explorer section all of which have a varied and exciting programme of activities.

Our Beavers and Cubs meet on a Wednesday whilst our Scouts and Explorers meet on a Friday. We are fortunate to be able to meet in our our own purpose built scout hut.

Beavers (6–8 years old)

Cubs (8-10½ years old)

Scouts (10½–14 years old)
Explorers (14 + years old)

Meeting Times

Beavers- Wed 6:15pm-7pm

Cubs- Wed 7:30pm-8:30pm

Scouts- Fri 7:30 pm-9:00pm

Summer Fete

Don't miss out on our annual Summer Fete, which takes place on Sunday the 26th of September. There will be live music, acts, stalls, activities, food and even some craft beers and wines. A great way to spend a sunny afternoon.

The Big Adventure

‘I wasn't involved in Scouting until someone asked me and I jumped at the chance. Adventure isn't just for young people or those of us already wearing neckerchiefs; it's for everyone. There's lots of talent among our 800,000 parents. Let's bring some of that into Scouting. Just ask - that's all it takes.’

Bear Grylls - Chief Scout

Why help?

There are many reasons why adults choose to volunteer for Scouting. Here are some that existing volunteers have given:

  • To give something back to the community: ‘I believe the kids get such a lot out of it; I just put a bit back for what the kids take out.’
  • To support the Leaders: ‘They give so much, you’ve got to give some of that back.’
  • Because volunteering is a ‘good thing’: ‘I just personally believe that you should always do some kind of voluntary work…otherwise nothing would get done in this world.’
  • As an enabler, so the Leader can do more:‘If I can help Sam, our Leader, out by doing the little things, then it means she has got more time to give the kids and then they get more out of it.’
  • To spend more quality time with your child:‘David used to go on his PlayStation2 while I read the paper after school and work – now we get a chance to do activities together.’
  • To develop your own skills: ‘I hadn’t used a compass since I was a Scout. After I learned how to use one again, I take one out on family walks. We get lost less than we used to!’
  • To enjoy and rediscover adventure for yourself: ‘We had a water fight at Beavers the other week, it was great!’
