Squirrels are a completely new provision for 4 to 6 year olds. There are plenty of reasons to get stuck in, as Squirrels gives young people the chance to make friends, have fun outdoors, learn new things and earn badges through fun activities. Squirrel Dreys usually meet weekly during term time and are the first of the four sections that form a Scout Group.
At Squirrels, everyone’s a friend – children from all communities, all backgrounds and all genders coming together to laugh, play and learn new skills that will help them in their lives.
We currently have three Squirrel Dreys in Thurrock – based in Chadwell, Ockendon and Orsett. If you are interested in working with us to launch and develop Squirrels in other areas of the District, please contact us.
