The 3rd Westmeath Delvin Scouts became a reality on the 14th April 2010 following ten months of hard work by group leaders.
Currently, the group involves 75 young people between the ages of 6 & 16 and is overseen by 17 committed leaders (all over 18).
In scouting we live by our Scout Law. We are open to all and everyone is treated the same. There is something for everyone in the Scouts, be it tying knots, doing track and trail, singing around the camp fire and more.
Beaver Scouts are aged between 6 and 9
So far our Beaver Scouts have gone hiking, visited Dublin Zoo for National Wildlife Awareness day, participated in a local fun day and visited the Army Barracks in Mullingar where they tackled the climbing wall without fear. They were also visited by a ban garda from Delvin to do the Stay Safe programme.
Cub Scouts are aged between 9 and 11
In addition to the events enjoyed by the Beaver Scouts, our Cub Scouts have also earned some badges for pet care projects, home help and other activities. Sargent Roger Nickleson also offered a course in road safety.
Scouts are aged between 11 and 16
Our Scouts work hard and play hard. They have been kayaking in Portlick which is where our Scout county camp site in located, as well as bowling in Mullingar and bivi making in mullaghmeen forest.
This group is for those aged between fifteen and eighteen years.
