Welcome to the 3rd Alton Scout Group website!

3rd Alton is based at the southerly end of the town and is part of the Rotherfield district in Hampshire. We hope you find this information useful. We are a thriving and growing group, and all our sections get up to some great activities.

We have 3 strong sections, starting with Beavers (6 to 8 year olds), Cubs (8 to 10.5 year olds) and the oldest section, Scouts (10.5 to 14 year olds). After Scouts, a young person can move onto Banderlog Explorer Scouts (or another local Explorer Scout Unit), who also run from our HQ.

Click on ‘Join 3rd Alton’ button at top right to register your child on our waiting list. We generally accept children on the list from the age of 4 or when they start school.

As an ever-expanding group, we are constantly looking out for Scout leaders or helpers to support a range of great activities with young people in our group. If you are up for a challenge and want to know more please use the ‘Contact Us’ button above.
