Why join 3rd Whitton?

At 3rd Whitton Scout Group & Edmund Hillary Explorer Scout Unit (ESU), our scouts and explorers are do-ers and give-it-a-go-ers. Yes, we go camping, hiking, swimming, abseiling, cycling and canoeing. But we also get to hang out with our friends every week – having fun, playing games, working in a team and taking on new challenges.

Everyone’s welcome here. All genders, races and backgrounds. Regardless of your child’s physical ability – there’s a Scout adventure out there waiting for them. And we’ll help them find it.

Covid-19 Update – Parents please be aware. Due to current circumstances, we will not be meeting face to face at the hut. Online zoom meetings will continue virtually at your sections normal Friday night meeting times. 

You can find the link and password to these meetings via the parents WhatsApp information point groups. Alternatively, you can message Ted, Caron or Guy for details. 

We hope to see you all back at the hut as soon as it is safely viable to resume F-2-F scouting.

Yours in scouting,
3W Leaders
