Weekly meetings @ 2nd Didsbury Scouts

'10 bins, 4 planks of wood, 3m of rope and a river full of crocodiles. Sounds like a normal scout night.'

We meet at the scout hut on School Lane every Tuesday (Griffin troop) and Wednesday (Phoenix troop) during school term from 7:35pm to 9:05pm. At our weekly meetings we take part in a variety of activities from games and problem solving to cooking and fire lighting.

'Get to know your kids better.... Send them away'

Our residential camps are central to our yearly programme with a number of camps being held each year.

Winter Camp

Every year in January or February we hold a Winter Camp where our scouts spend a weekend sleeping in tents outdoors.  This is the camp to enjoy snow on your doorstep and ice on your tent

Climbing Camp

Every two years the troop spends a week at the Roaches in the Peak District. Here we spend our days rock climbing and our evenings relaxing in the Don Whillans hut. This mountain hut is an old building that has been built out of the rock face with the kitchen still a cave!!!
