Website Cambridge Scout Shop

The Cambridge Scout Shop is in the process of a huge refresh project, to help sustain it’s valuable service in the county (and beyond) for the next 60 years.

The advantage of the Shop is that clothing can be tried on for fit especially youth sizes as a 32″ or S size is a loose term. We want to promote the sale of badges ordered in advance of collection in the same way as they are online, then can be collected or posted for the further away ones i.e Wisbech & Spalding & Royston etc.

This has a small control on the badges going to genuine Scout persons rather than any Tom, Dick or Harry off the street. We also can supply camping gear from Scout Shops Ltd. All of this is at the standard cost at Scout Shops Lancing, so it is the same price less the cost of their postage.

The Shop is run completely by volunteers unpaid, and is open during School Term time only. All profits go to the Districts to help keep the Capitation cost down. Obviously the greater turn over the larger the contribution.

The team are looking for fun and motivated individuals to help support the shop during it’s opening hours (Mondays, Wednesdays, and 1st Saturday of month). The shop runs on a rota basis, so could only be approx 2 hrs per week. The shop is always manned with at least two members of staff, so no one is ever alone.


Duties include:

  • Helping support customers
  • Answering questions
  • Fulfilling orders
  • Stock checking

Support & training is given.
