As the year draws to a close, the scouts are busy in each section preparing for their summer camp. The end of year is one of the most exciting moments of the scout year. Third Laois Durrow is a very active group in the county and provides a great range of activities for its young members. We have 50 youth members at present and a dozen of leaders/scouters. There is a small waiting list for new members in September in Beavers (6-7-8 years old), Cubs (9-10-11), and Scouts (12-13-14-15) and Ventures (16+).

We are always on the lookout for new scouters. Maybe you were a leader previously and after your kids grew out of scouts, you left, by choice or not, maybe you would like to join us again and share your skills with new kids and new leaders alike. Or maybe you know someone that would enjoy being outdoors and join the big scout family.

And even if you never did scouting but enjoy walking and challenging yourself, you should give us a shout and come and meet one of our sections. For more information about our group, please contact Delphine Lawlor on (086) 3655178.
