Scout Activities

1st Burwell Scout Troop meet on Monday nights, between 7:00pm and 9:00pm.

For boys and girls aged 10½ - 14 years. Scouts offers a wide range of activities, tasks and adventure for young people.

Our aim is to try to put together a programme of activities and events, that is both challenging and fun. To teach the Scouts skills that will become useful throughout their lives.

By far the best way to see what we are about, is to join us ...


Some of the scouting activities we do are:

Knots & Lashing

Devils Dyke Night Hike

Wiken Fen Hike


Cycle Rides

Wide Games

Open Fire Cooking

Lemonade Scones

3 cups Self Raising Flour

1 cup Double Cream

1 cup Lemonade

15 mins at 220c

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. But try not to mix too much, you want to keep them as light and fluffy as possible.

Place in a pre-heated Dutch Oven, with coals on the lid and underneath. Try to resist checking on them during cooking.
