We are Launching Squirrels, Scouts’ new programme for 4 and 5 year olds. We’re helping young people gain skills for life where and when it matters most.

The Squirrel Drey is the first and youngest section of the Scout Group. Squirrels are young people aged between 4 and 5 years old.


Squirrels get active, explore nature and have fun learning with friends, all while earning badges – just like other Scouts. New badges include Feel Good, Be Active, Explore Outdoors, Brilliant Builder and Exciting Experiments.


Squirrel uniform consists of a red sweatshirt with your badges sewn on and a coloured scarf or ‘necker’ to represent your local group. There are lots of other optional accessories you can wear such as hats, hoodies, navy blue trousers or shorts, if you’d like to.

While our local Scout shop is closed, a sweatshirt, polo shirt, trousers and belt can be purchased online at either of these sites:

The Scout Store or The Glasgow Scout Shop
