Whats different…

As a predominately Muslim scout group were often asked whats different about your sessions/meeting.

We do scouting, in all the traditional sense but we add little elements that our leaders and young people relate to. While we still have a traditional opening ceremony for all sections, the grand howl, patrol ceremony we always start with a big Bismillah and sura fateha for all sections from squirels to explorer’s.

We also try and bring in an Islamic perspective on the life skills we teach based on the Spiritual Development Guides produced by the Muslim Scout Fellowship.

We also provide a provision for prayers if they fall during our sessions and activites off and on site including camp.

To find out more, recive our newsletter, become a volunteer leader or to sign up your child please head over to the contact.
