Get involved

Few things are more rewarding than being involved in Scouting, and there are many ways you can join the adventure!

There are many ways you can kick-start your adventure, as a young person, parent or adult volunteer. Our volunteers get involved on their terms and not all roles involve working with young people. If you can give a little time (or a lot) to help improve young lives in your community, we’d love to hear from you.

Get involved > Young People

Either contact us using the form at the bottom of the page, or just come along on a meeting night.  Please remember to bring an adult with you when you’re being dropped off so that we have contact details.

Get involved > Parents

Parents tell us that Scouting gives their children more confidence, responsibility, a broader set of friends, a chance to pursue things they might not get to do otherwise, adventure and an extended family.

‘Children learn social skills as well as practical ones. They have to remember things to bring the following week so they have to take a bit of responsibility for their own stuff!’

‘When I see Ella at Cubs, doing things for herself and her friends, I’m so impressed. It helps you step back and let them get on with it. ’

Parents’ FAQs

Will my child be insured when on Scout activities?
Yes. All Members are covered under our Personal Accident and Medical Expenses Policy.

How much does it cost to send my child to Scouts?
Our annual fees are £28.  Trips, camps and activities are usually charged separately. Cost should not be a barrier to anyone taking part in Scouting and if this is an issue, you can speak to the local Section Leader in confidence.

What do Scouts wear and where can I buy it?
Scouts wear a uniform of black or grey school trousers and a coloured sweatshirt, shirt or polo shirt (which varies depending on the age range). All Scouts (adults and young people) wear a coloured scarf or necker which we provide. Uniform can either be bought from Scout Shops or Belfast Scout Shop (the adults in your child’s Group will be able to give you more information).

Is there a planned programme of activities for Scouts?
Yes. Behind the fun of Scouting, there is an educational programme. The main programme areas are: Outdoor and Adventure; Global; Community; Fit for Life; Creative; and Beliefs and Attitudes. Group leaders are trained to deliver this programme.

My child is already a Scout but we are moving, how can I enrol him/her in your Group?
Firstly, you will need to tell your child’s current Group that you are leaving the area. Then contact us using the form at the bottom of the page and we’ll put you in contact with the relevant leader.  If your current Group uses OnlineScoutManager, ask them to transfer your child’s details to 1st Lisnaskea on the system.

Get involved > Volunteer

Volunteering for Scouting is one of the most fun, rewarding and positive things you can ever do. You can give as much or a little time you like and we will match opportunities that fit your skills and time available. If you would like to have fun and make friends, earn professional qualifications and make a real difference to the lives of young people please contact us.

Get involved > Fundraising activities

Scouting is a charity, and great scouting requires sufficient funds – to run camps, purchase equipment, provide badges and so on. Please help us raise money so that we can continue to offer a high quality Scouting experience.  Our main source of fundraising is bagpacking in Asda in Enniskillen at Easter and Christmas.
