Two young girls aged 4 to 6 years old, in red, Squirrels uniforms.  They are playing outside during a Worcester District Scouts session.

Squirrels: the newest branch of the Scouts family tree, and a great opportunity for 4-6 year olds to get involved!

Squirrels can achieve anything they set their minds to – and they have lots of fun along the way.

The one hour sessions are a brilliant opportunity for young people to take their first step into being part of Scouts, and they’ll help everyone get ready for the adventure of school too.

A Squirrel Drey may be organised into smaller groups called Nests. Nests can be used in a number of ways to facilitate the organisation of the Squirrel Drey. They may provide a ‘home’ area for Squirrel Scouts to gather at points at the start, during or at the end of the Drey meeting.


Sessions will be packed with outdoors activities, fun, games, badges, laughter, and so much more to help our youngest members learn the skills they need for life. During their time in the Drey, Squirrel Scouts will get a chance to try a wide range of different activities as well as going on trips, days out, and earn their first badge. Participation, rather than meeting set standards, is the key approach, and there are a range of badges and challenge awards that Squirrel Scouts can gain to recognise their achievements.
