Join us

Balerno Scouts manages a joining list due to high demand. Limitations on the size of the hall and on the number of volunteer leaders prevents us from guaranteeing a place at short notice. Where there are limited places, priority will be given as follows:

  1. Children of leaders
  2. Existing Scout members moving up to the next group
  3. New entrants to Scouting

So, if you want to ensure a place for your child, why not volunteer? It doesn’t have to be every week, but any regular help is always welcome. Come along, and test the water. It is fun for adults too! You and your child are welcome to visit at any time as a taster session.
