Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorer Scouts

Groups and Units are open to both boys and girls. Beaver Scouts are aged 6 - 8. Cub Scouts are aged 8 - 10.5. Scouts are aged 10.5 to 14. Explorer Scouts are aged 14 - 18. There are a number of Groups and Units across the District. WAITING LISTS ARE LONG AND A PLACE IS NOT GUARANTEED. More leaders are always required and children of leaders get priority. WAITING LISTS: If your child is over 6 go to www.harpendenscouts.org.uk and follow the links and instructions to join the District Waiting List. If your child is under 6 you will need to go to www.harpendenscouts.org.uk, choose which Group's (or Groups') waiting list(s) you wish to join and follow the link to contact the relevant person at that Group. Your child's name will be added to that Group's waiting List. If your child is unfortunately not allocated a place at your Group of choice when your child turns 6, their name will be added to the District Waiting List automatically and you will be contacted when a place becomes available for a child of the same age bracket as your child.more...

Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Senior Section

Rainbows are aged 5 to 7, Brownies 7 to 10, Guides 10 to 14 and the Senior Section covers those aged 14 to 25. If you would like your daughter to join Girlguiding for the first time (at whatever level) then you need to register by going to Girlguiding.org.uk ("Information for Parents"). You will complete basic information including a preference about which pack you would like to register with - it all works by postcode and will default to the closest one to home. You should then be contacted by the relevant leader even if it is just to say that your daughter has been added to the waiting list, but even if an e-mail is not received the online entry will still be there. It is advisable to add girls on to the waiting list as early as possible. Girlguiding in Harpenden and the surrounding areas is very popular and WAITING LISTS ARE LONG AND A PLACE IS NOT GUARANTEED. More leaders are always required and daughters of leaders get priority, so please do consider volunteering. If a girl is already in Girlguiding (at whatever level) the unit leader will sort out the "waiting to transfer" list for moving up to the next level. There is no need for the parents to re-register online, this just results in duplicate entries. The idea is that girls already in Girlguiding will be given priority when moving up, over those new to Girlguiding. However, the problem still remains that there are insufficient places to accommodate everyone. In the Harpenden area Rainbows and Guides are particularly over-subscribed as there are fewer units in the area. more...
