All sections have an exciting, planned and varied programme, full of activities which include the following: fun, games, craft making, camping, hiking, archery, orienteering, pioneering, caving, challenges and team building. We encourage all our children and young people to reach their full potential physically, socially and emotionally whilst being part of the 8th Flixton family.

We provide the opportunity to do the Duke of Edinburgh Award, both Bronze and Gold Levels, via our Explorer Unit. We also operate the Young Leader Scheme in conjunction with our District Explorer Young Leader Unit. This provides training and support for our Young Leaders, the people we consider to be the leaders of the future.

For all volunteering, hire of hall or other general inquiries, please contact our Group Scout Leader.
