Skills for Life

Cookham Scout Group is a busy and successful local charity helping young people gain Skills for Life through an exciting and varied programme of activities.

Welcome to 1st Cookham

We are open to boys and girls aged between 6 and 18, with a non-stop programme of adventure all the way. Everyone’s welcome here. All genders, races and backgrounds. Regardless of your child’s physical ability – there’s a Scout adventure out there waiting for them and we will help them find it.

We are lucky to have a great HQ building, our own campsite in the village and all the great outdoors of Cookham to explore. We offer weekly meetings of all sections during term time plus a programme of special events at weekends, and regular camps and trips.
