Badger Hill Scout Group Maulden, Bedfordshire

All the sections are co-ed and they all currently have a good balance between girls and boys. They come not only from Maulden, but most of the surrounding villages and towns from Houghton Conquest to Barton and Ampthill to Shefford. Unlike education there are no catchment areas in Scouting so it’s your choice which local  group to join.

To enquire about your son or daughter joining Beavers, Cubs, and Scouts please download an application form here, and email to the membership secretary at  who has the current position for all sections on numbers and waiting lists. For Explorers please see their website as above.

For any other enquiries including adult volunteering please email The inbox is checked regularly and emails will be forwarded to the best person to deal with them.

Badger Hill Scout Group started life in 1985 as Pulloxhill Scouts, meeting in various village halls and with the kit stored in a lockup garage. In 2000 we merged with two other groups in Maulden and Houghton Conquest, moved to the Maulden group’s HQ, and became Badger Hill Scout Group.

Now having a permanent home, we started our first Beaver Colony in 2001 and have continued as a growing and successful Group with well over 100 young people aged from 6 to 14 enjoying Scouting.

We also have a linked Explorer Scout Unit (ages 14-18) - click on

Welcome to Badger Hill Scout Group's website. We’re based in Maulden, Bedfordshire and have one Beaver Colony (age 6-8), one Cub Pack (age 8-10.5), and a Scout Troop (age 10-14).


At present we regret that we have no vacancies in Beavers, Cubs, or Scouts for young people to join immediately, although we are still taking applications to go on our waiting lists.

In January this year we had two Beaver colonies and two Cub packs, but we have been obliged to close one of each solely because of a shortage of leaders. We have enough young people on our waiting lists to restart them just as soon as we can find leaders.

The common perception that being a leader means a commitment to an evening every week and having to do lengthy training is no longer the case. Leadership in 2016 is now very flexible around whatever other demands you have on your time and we take account of any relevant skills you may already have when discussing with you what training you would find useful. Please do get in touch if you can help or if even you’d just like to know more about what’s involved, without obligation.
