The 4th Fermanagh Scouts have become a vital part of the community in Lisnaskea with generations of families from all over the district taking part. 
The Scouts are based at St Ronan’s Parish Hall Lisnaskea and runs four sections – beavers, cubs, scouts and venture. This year, the 4th Fermanagh, Lisnaskea Scouts have 106 young people registered with a total of 16 leaders, who are the backbone of the group. 
The overall aim of Scouting Ireland is to encourage the physical, intellectual, character, emotional social and spiritual development of young people so that they can achieve their full potential and are responsible citizens who seek to improve our society.
 The Scouts learn how to deliver everyday adventure skills of their surrounding area by learning how to canoe, camp, cook, fire lighting, and tie knots.
These emergencies skills mean the scouts have fun in a safe and supportive environment, while they grow in confidence, develop leadership skills and start to take a bigger interest in our community and group.
Celine Gleeson, Scout leader in Lisnaskea has been involved for 16 years and has progressed through the ranks to leader. Celine started in the cub section, but has since been involved at county level, as cub programme team leader for the
Northern Provincial Camp and is also a trainer for Scouting Ireland.
Celine now passes her knowledge on to the scouts who are coming through the ranks. 
“Seeing the young Scouts grow and develop in confidence is one of the many rewarding jobs in scouting but the most important aspect is the fun we have. Our programme involves a variety of activities such as weekly meetings, adventure skills, special interest badges and the chief scout award.
The activities provide fun, friendship and challenges to our young members to complete a range of scouting adventures and activities in a safe environment. ” 
Celine Gleeson encourages anyone interested to get involved, and learn essential life enhancing skills, or volunteer to help out at the different sections. If anyone is interested in joining the sections, they can come along to the section and register or speak to a leader to find out more about it.
Beavers are on a Saturday morning from 11am to 12.30pm, Cubs are on a Monday night from 7.30pm to 9pm and Scouts are on Tuesday nights from 7.30pm to 9pm.
