The Dittons is a well established Scout Group (over 100 years old) serving Hinchley Wood, Thames Ditton and Long Ditton areas. We provide scouting for boys and girls in those areas and the sections' training programmes refect the age groups of the children in those sections.

Essentially, Beavers scouts 6 years old to 8 years old.

Cub Scouts ages 8 - 10 and a half years old

Scouts aged 10 and half to 14 years old

Explorers aged 14 upwards.


Our Beaver colonies operate Wednesdays and Thursdays between 16.30 and 18.00.

Our two cub packs operate on Mondays and Tuesdays, both between 18.30 and 20.00.

The Scout Troop operates on a Thursday between 19.30 and 21.00.

Explorers meeting every other Wednesday from 19.00 and 21.00.


We have a long waiting list for each of the above sections. Children can be prioritised depending on the level of help and commitment respective parents are willing to give us. Parents who are willing to become regular helpers within a section will have their child's place moved up the waiting list.
