About Us

The 5th Portsmouth Scout groups and the Viking Explorer Scout group meet in the upper hall of St. James Church on a Monday evening during school term time.
The 5th Portsmouth is comprised of 3 sections for children aged 6-14: Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.
Both boys and girls are welcome to join us. Please Contact Us to enquire about our waiting list.

Teens aged 14-18 now have the opportunity to join the Viking Explorer group. Please Contact Us for more information.

Subs for all groups is currently £2.50 per week. This can be paid weekly but it would be preferable if you could pay termly or half termly (in advance). Cash or cheques are acceptable (make cheques payable to 5th Portsmouth Scout Group).

At each meeting the children will be playing games and will hopefully have the chance to try new activities, but our aim is that your child enjoys their time with us, hopefully learning one or two new skills along the way.
We will, at times, be covering skills and activities that are included in badges. We all know that children enjoy receiving recognition for their work & the badge system is an ideal way to achieve this.

All of our leaders & helpers are volunteers who have the required DBS clearance.

YOUR CHILD IN THE MEDIA

On occasions photographs & videos of Scouts/Cubs/Beavers taking part in activities are taken for a variety of uses. These may be submitted to the local newspapers, the Group, District or County newsletters and websites or put on display.  If you give permission for your child’s image to be used in this way please complete the media form included in our induction pack. media
