Hiya, I'm Nick and I'm one of the Bull's Scout Leaders. I have been involved in scouting at Waltham Abbey since 2005, when my son joined as a cub and I volunteered to be a Parent Helper. I have had a very happy and rewarding time in scouting. I have run the Bulls Troop since it was created in 2007, with the help of Ken and Maureen Stanger, who have been involved in scouting since 1988. We are here to offer your children the opportunity to experience activities and adventures such as camping, rafting, sailing, survival skills and much more. Scouting helps young people gain confidence and develop skills such as teamwork and leadership. It gives them the opportunity to reach their full potential.
Welcome to the webpage of the Bulls Scout Troop.
Scouts is for young people (boys or girls) aged 10¼ to 14. The Bulls meet every Wednesday evening (except during school holidays) at 7.15pm in Elphwood Hall and finish at around 9pm.

June 2013 - Thirteen members of Bulls Scout Troop, spent a night outdoors sleeping ‘rough’ in cardboard make-shift shelters. These Scouts and their leaders were sponsored by their friends and family to raise money in aid of the charity St Mungo’s. Sponsors included parishioners of Waltham Abbey Baptist Church and local business Advance Insurance Services. “Altogether we raised £600. Our scouts thoroughly enjoyed the event and have been educated into an awareness of the lives of those less fortunate in society” says scout leader Nick Harvey.
