Welcome to 1st Hassocks Scouts Our Group The 1st Hassocks Scout group is made up of two Beaver colonies (6-8 year olds), three Cub packs (8-11 year olds) and two Scout troops (11-14 year olds). Many of our Scouts go on to join the Mid Sussex District Explorers, as well as become young leaders themselves. What we do We make the most of our location on the edge of the South Downs National Park and the greenery of Sussex and run as much of our programme outside as possible. Joining up If you have a child who would like to get involved in Scouting you can sign them up to our waiting list. How we’re organised Our group is supported by a dedicated team of adult and young leaders, parent helpers, an executive team and a fundraising team. We are all volunteers and we’re always to hear from people who want to join us to help.
