Our Sections | Join the Adventure
Beaver Scouts are the youngest section of the Scouting family and are for boys and girls aged between 6 and 8 years old.
The Beavers are based around making things, outdoor activities, singing, playing games, going out on visits, investigating nature, listening to stories, learning how to be safe and most importantly, making new friends and having fun!
Our Beaver Colony meets on Monday night from 6.15 – 7.15 pm.
We have an active Beaver Facebook page with regular updates.
Cub Scouts are the second section of the Scouting movement. Cub Scouts are boys and girls aged between 8 and 10½ years, who like challenge and adventure.
Challenge and adventure is the focus for Cubs and include a range of exciting indoor and outdoor activities, games, crafts, cooking, visits and outings and of course, camping.

We have an active Cub Facebook page with regular updates.
Scouts are for boys and girls aged between 10½ and 14 years who want to make friends and develop their widening interests in ways that are both fun and educational.
Scout activities are about action and involvement and include camping, cooking, film making, hiking, pioneering, electronics – the list is endless.
Our Scout Troop meets on Friday night from 7.30 – 9.00 pm.
We have an active Scout Facebook page with regular updates.
Alva Scout Group does not currently have an Explorer unit but their are two Explorer units in Clackmannanshire.
Explorer Scouts are for young people, usually aged between 14 and 18 years old. They make up the fourth section of the Scouting family.
The Explorers are given more freedom to come up with their own programme. This allows more input from the explorers themselves which leads to bigger and better adventures.
The two Explorer Units in Clackmannanshire District are:
Wee County Explorer Unit meeting in Sauchie & Alloa Scout Hall, Parkhead Road, Sauchie on Wednesday night from 7.15 pm – 9.30 pm
Hillfoots Explorer Unit meeting in Tillicoultry Scout & Guide Hall, Braehead, Tillicoultry on Monday night from 7.30 – 9.00 pm
If you are interested please contact Clackmannanshire District Scouts.
Membership Fees & Subs
Like most good things it costs money to be a member of the Scout Association.
Subscriptions help to pay for the running of the Group. This includes the cost of running and maintaining the Scout Hall; including payment of electricity, maintenance, property insurance, etc.
On top of the subs we also have to pay a capitation (membership) fee to the Scout Association. Capitation covers the cost of running the Scout Association and includes such things as insurance, leader training, etc.
Subs can be paid term time or 4 weekly if required (cash/cheque).
Please remember that we are a voluntary organisation and rely on our adults to give up their time to keep the Group running. Collecting fees term time allows the leaders to spend more time on fun activities than administration.
