We are a Christian youth organisation working with boys and young men between the ages of 4–18. Our programmes are balanced to provide every child and young person opportunities to take part in a wide range of activities, learn new skills and develop existing skills.
We enjoy a weekly programme of fun, doing different activities which include crafts, music, games, sports, bible stories and making friends. We are pleased to be able to accommodate boys with a wide variety of abilities and interests, with the emphasis very much aimed at ‘lively’ fun!
We enjoy a weekly programme crammed full of challenges, bible stories, team games and achievements (badge work) and making friends. We have activities catering for just about every possible interest and we try to encourage the boys to explore new ones. They also have the opportunity to do “out of hall” activities, which include participation in sports competitions with other BB companies at Battalion level.
We enjoy a weekly programme of learning new life skills, decision making and having fun. We provide a secure environment to explore new possibilities, achieve personal goals while making friends and have adventures whilst learning more about God. The boys also have the opportunity to do “out of hall” activities, which include participation in sports competitions with other BB companies at Battalion level. We also operate the “Queen’s Badge” scheme which is equivalent to the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme – Silver level.
