All our Scout leaders are volunteers who are dedicated to seeing young children develop social and life skills, independence and a love for the outdoors. The group is led by Baloo and supported by Colonel.
Name: Jamie Croft
Leader Name: Baloo
Role: Scout Leader 18th Maidenhead
Leader Experience: I have had the great opportunity to grow up through the different stages of Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and worked hard to become Assistant Cub Leader. I am now the Scout Leader on Friday nights. I have been involved in scouting for 14 years and have learned more than I thought I would ever learn, from survival skills, map work and fire lighting to leadership skills and engaging with people to help them learn more too, both children and adults.
What I like most about scouting: The best aspect of scouting for me is seeing the happy faces of the children having fun whilst learning things that they wouldn't learn at home or at school. It is worth all the hard work when we get great feedback from parents with thanks and appreciation for the time we put in
Name: Steve Dyte
Leader Name: Colonel
Scouting Experience: Many years ago I was a Cub in the Staplegrove Scout Group in Taunton, but never made it up into Scouts. I have fond memories of all the outdoor activities, especially a camp that was interrupted by a thunderstorm one night which flooded our tent, and meant we had to abandon the site at 3am! I have been involved in 18th Maidenhead since Sep 2015 when we started the Scout section with just 3 Scouts.
What I like most about scouting: My favourite thing about Scouting are the opportunities that come along, for the children and the adults. Whether it's Dragon Boat racing, Night Hikes or climbing Snowdon, there is always a chance to try something new.
