Every child in each of our sections gets to participate in fun learning activities built around criteria to achieve a certain badge. Our scouts then receive their badges in an award ceremony, which marks their efforts, and dedication in completing the set criteria. Activities can take place indoors, outdoors, during camps and also through observation by section leaders. Every activity is done in a safe environment and as always we aim to remind children of the Islamic aspects to every goal they are working towards.
Beaver Scouts are the youngest section of the scouting family, aged between 6-8 years old. Their activities are based around making things, outdoor activities, singing, playing games, going out on visits, investigating nature, listening to stories, learning how to be safe and most importantly making new friends.
I am enjoying the sessions and made a lot of new friends. I also enjoy the creative activities.”
Cub Scouts are young people aged between 8 and 10 ½ who make up the second section of the Scouting family, Between Beavers and Scouts. Cub Scouts also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme parks or a farm. Sometimes they will be able to go camping with the rest of the Pack and take part in all kinds of outdoor activities.
The Scout Section is for young people, usually aged between 10 ½ and 14 years. A young person can come into the Troop at 10 and may stay until they are 14 ½ years old. The Scout Troop is the third section in the Scout Group, above Beavers and Cubs. They also take part in activities, however at a more advanced level than Beavers and Cubs.
I personally think that Scouting with 11th St. Marylebone is a great opportunity for anyone, from those who seek adventure to those who seek knowledge and friendship.”

Explorer Scouts are young people, usually aged between 14 and 18 years old. They make up the fourth section of the Scouting family after Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. Activities are just as adventurous as any section and more suitable for this older age group. Explorer Scouts often get the chance to work with other Explorer Scouts in their District, not just their own Unit, so can take part in an even wider spectrum of activities.
Scouts helped me find good friends and the leaders inspire me to do better and be better.”
