Welcome to Hackney's Newest Scout Group

Our age groups

Aged 6 - 8?

Try new things. Make new friends. Joining Beavers is just the beginning of your big adventure.

Aged 8 - 10½?

Develop new skills. Soar to great heights. Being a Cub opens up a whole other world.

We also plan to open Squirrels (ages 4 - 6) and Scouts (ages 10½ - 14) later in 2022.
Our waiting list is open for these age groups as well.

Join our waiting list

Priority is given to young people living in Hackney borough, and the brothers / sisters of existing members.

Our membership & fees page has more information on the waiting list as well as uniform and subscription costs.

Take on our 3 meeting challenge.

The Scouts are run by local communities for the whole community.

In order for this new group to succeed, we need parents / carers to join new Beavers and Cubs for the first 3 sessions to lend a hand: making juice, helping to run a game, maybe helping to plan an activity next week?

By the end of 3 sessions we promise:

  • Your child will have earned at least 1 badge

  • You'll both have made new friends

  • You'll both have found the confidence to try something you hadn't done before

We'll also have experienced volunteers on hand, and a load of flexible training if you do want to get more involved after the 3 weeks, or if you want to just continue to help occasionally. The important thing is that everyone is a volunteer and everyone contributes something to towards the group.

When / where do we meet?

We meet at

North London Muslim Community Centre
66-68 Cazenove Rd,
N16 6AA


Beavers and Cubs will meet on alternate weeks between 7pm - 8:30pm

A schedule will be distributed to parents ahead of the first schedule.
