New Spiral Scouts Group forming in the Attleborro-Foxborough-Sharon-Mansfield Massachusetts Area.
Spiral Scouts is a coed, alternative scouting organization for youth 3-18, with pagan roots, though our philosophy and mission is all inclusive, regardless of faith (or lack of faith), gender, orientation, race or ability.
The Three "Pillars":
1. Outdoor activities: 75% of Scouting is Outdoor activities. Hiking, trips to the beach, winter activities, conservation and clean up service projects, and overnight camping trips.
2. Arts and Sciences: craft projects related to themes like holidays and seasonal changes, and science projects to learn more about our world.
3. Sharing cultural practices: we acknowledge and celebrate holiday traditions, from different faiths and cultures.
Badges and awards: There are multiple badges and awards that can be earned
Meeting Schedule: meetings once a month, for about 2.5 hours (on a Saturday or Sunday). Each meeting has a theme, an opening ceremony, a demonstration, a craft activity, snack break, physical activity, share out, and a closing ceremony. Also trips interspersed with the meetings.
Meeting location: within a 20 minute radius of Attleboro.
Fees: $60 yearly per child, slightly less if you have multiple children. We don't have any dues at the meetings themselves. We can always use more adult leaders and volunteers. Adult registration is also $60, plus $10 for a background check (waived if you have a recent background check in MA).
Uniforms: After registering, you'll receive a neck cord and appropriate patches, and the uniform is just a dark green polo shirt.
