7th Swindon are one of the largest scout groups in Swindon North district and serve the Priory Vale/Abbey Meads area of Swindon. We currently have around 100 youth members and a leader team of about 15.

We have a Beaver Colony for 6-8yr olds, a Cub Pack for 8-10½ yr olds and a Scout Troop for 10½-14yr olds.

We do not currently have an Explorer Unit although there are four units serving Swindon North.

  Beavers takes boys and girls aged 6-8yrs. The size of the “colony” is strictly limited to 24 children and there is usually a waiting list for entry.
  Cubs are boys and girls aged 8-10½ yrs. The Pack numbers around 30 and there is often a short waiting list for entry.
  Scouts is the third section of the group and takes boys and girls from 10½ – 14½ yrs . Being slightly older the scouts program revolves heavily arround outdoor and adventurous activities.
