Scout Group


3rd Carluke (Kirkton) Scout Group was formed in 1968 and prides itself on being a friendly group involved in all aspects of Scouting. Sections meet on Mondays or Fridays. Please select the section below for more information.

The aim of the Scout Association is to encourage the physical, mental and spiritual development of young people so that they may take a constructive place in society. The method of achieving the aim of the “World Brotherhood of Scouts” is providing an enjoyable and attractive scheme of progressive training, based on the Scout Promise and Law and guided by adult leadership. The group is organised in a number of sections catering for all age groups.

The Parents’ Committee
The Group Parents’ Committee exists to support the Group Scout Leader on meeting his responsibilities. The members of the enthusiastic group are elected annually from amongst the parents and friends of any members of the Group. The Committee is responsible for raising funds in order to run activities or buy equipment, for maintenance of Group property, group public relations and in assisting the recruiting of Leaders and other adult support.

3rd Carluke’s Group Committee is active and organises a number of fund raising activities including a Christmas Post service in Carluke. Running a Scout Group the size of that in Kirkton requires constant support so the committee have to work very hard indeed, but when at full numbers it is a force to be reckoned with!

The success of the Group since 1968 has been based on a hard working Leader Team, supported by the Parents’ Committee, friends of the Group and Kirkton Church.
