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 www.brocks-explorers.org.uk

Welcome to Badger Hill Scout Group's website. We’re based in Maulden, Bedfordshire and have a Beaver Colony (age 6-8), a Cub Pack (age 8-10.5), and a Scout Troop (age 10-14). All the sections are co-ed and they all currently have a good balance between girls and boys.

MEMBERSHIP SITUATION - JANUARY 2017

In January 2016 we had two Beaver colonies and two Cub packs as well as the Scout Troop, but we’ve had to close one colony and one pack solely because we don’t have enough leaders. We have the Scout hut and the equipment and we have enough young people on our waiting lists to reopen them both immediately but….

                                                    WE NEED LEADERS!

Many people still think that being a leader means you have to turn up every week and do masses of training, but we realise that nowadays most people just can’t do this. We are very flexible around family, work, and the other demands you have on your time, and the starting point for training is to see what relevant knowledge you already have. We would then discuss with you what (if any) gaps need to be filled and some of this can even be done on-line.

You can give us invaluable help with whatever time you can spare, and the existing leaders are there for support so you won’t be thrown in at the deep end. If you’d like to talk to us about what’s involved , please do get in touch without obligation.

At present we have a small number of places available, and we are still taking applications to go on our waiting lists.


They come not only from Maulden, but most of the surrounding villages and towns from Houghton Conquest to Barton and Ampthill to Shefford
