Welcome to the Clackmannanshire District Scouts website. 

Clackmannanshire Scouting has 500 youth members, both male and female, aged from 6 to 25, supported by 110 adult volunteers.

Scouting is organised into local Groups, who look after the three younger Sections: Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.  Young people over the age of 14 are managed by the District.

This website will keep you updated as to what is happening in Scouting across the Clackmannanshire District. 

So if you are not already involved why not find out more and come and join the adventure!

The Readiness Levels in ScotlandLast updated: 6 September 2021

 
As with all Scouts activities you need to have a risk assessment and be clear on how you are managing the transmission of COVID. Guidance on how to protect everyone involved in the Scouts and support those made more vulnerable by the current situation. This guidance contains the most up to date information relating to social distancing, face coverings and hygiene arrangements, check this regularly to stay current.

Readiness level: YELLOW

This means: Section meetings can take place outdoors and indoors. Residential activities may take place.

Group sizes and limitations: 

  • All non-residential activities (including young people, Scout Network and adult only groups): Activities involving young people: No limit on group size, although all activities must be able to safely manage the risk of transmission of COVID and, if this is not possible, they must not take place. Outdoor activities are still encouraged.
  • Residential activities: Nights away activities may take place using multi occupancy accommodation in tents/rooms with no limit of numbers, based on the new Covid-19 Protection beyond Level zero at the home local authority.  Scout ratios for both indoors and outdoors must be applied. COVID measures such as face coverings indoors and good hygiene remain in place (even overnight) and lateral flow testing is strongly recommended. Further guidance in the planning a COVID-safe nights away in 2021.
