Online Scout Manager is the tool leaders use to manage Scout sections. Here, parents can see the weekly programme, events, payments and their child’s badge progress. It can also be used to access discount codes for companies sponsoring Scout activities.

Parents are invited to join Online Scout Manager via an e-mail from the section leaders. Parents can create an account which can be used to access details for all their children’s details within the 1st Finchampstead Group. You can have one account for all your children at 1st Finchampstead, just select the child’s name in the top right hand corner.

Once you log in you’ll see the the Noticeboard, plus a menu:
