As a Scout, you will make lots of new friends, learn some great skills and have experiences that will stay with you for life. 3rd Croydon is an active and vibrant group. Formed in 1958 the group has all Scouting sections represented. The Scout year follows the school term structure and our sections meet at the Scout Hall corner Birdwood Road & Lusher Road, Croydon. Meetings are at the following times unless otherwise advised by the leaders.
Parents and Caregivers
Adult involvement with Scouting is on a completely voluntary basis. It will take as much time as you wish to put in. For some this is very little time and effort, for others it can become a passionate interest which may see you one day putting on a blue uniform shirt and joining us as a Leader! We recommend that new parents/carers obtain a Working with Children Card (volunteer), which is required for any person over 18 years of age transporting, assisting with activities away from the hall including camps.
Fundraising is an important part of our scouting community. Through fundraising we are able to purchase new equipment that can be used by all. It also allows us to be able to provide a varied program to our youth. All our fundraising is done by our 3rd Croydon families volunteering their time.
