Maynooth Scouts

Welcome to the 8th Kildare Maynooth Scouts Website. Here you will be able to find out what the Scout Group are doing in our active sections. We have five sections in Maynooth:
Beaver Scouts (6 to 8 year olds)
Cub Scouts (9 to 11 year olds)
Scouts (12 to 14 year olds)
Venture Scouts (15 to 17 year olds)
Rover Scouts (18 to 25 year olds)

We have a large team of Scouters (leaders) who volunteer not only to manage weekly meetings but also to give up their time for weekends away, annual camps in the Summer and not to mention the training and development requirements for being a Scouter

The Scout Group also has over 40 years of history. You can learn more about that in our history page where you can see our big gallery

All this activity has its home in our Scout Den – The Geraldine Hall. This is our building that we developed and maintained since 2013

Beaver Scouts

In Beaver Scouts we start our journey on the Scouting path called ONE Programme. We use the Scouting Method which involves Beavers working in small teams called lodges. They gain responsibility through learning skills in the out of doors and follow Scouting Values that are embedded in Service to Others. This is also supported by our team of Scouters. You can contact our Scouter team at: beavers at

Cub Scouts

When a Child joins the Cub Scout section they follow the same Scouting path as the Beaver Scouts called ONE Programme. They don’t have to have been in Beaver Scouts but it helps. A Cub Scout learns about the Scouting Method of team learning in the out doors with the embedded service orientated values.

While the path and the methods are the same as Beaver Scouts the responsibility is increased. Beavers may go camping and hiking but in Cub Scouts that is at a challenging level for the Cubs. Our Scouter team keep update with their skills and can tell you more if you want to contact them at: cubs at


In Scouts we bring the Scouting idea of supervised age-appropriate responsibility to a new level. Scouts are given the opportunity of new adventures and the focus of peer led planning is crucial. The Patrol of eight people is crucial to not only the success of their adventures but also to the individual’s benefit.
