WELCOME TO THE ADVENTURE
Life as a Scout is an eye-opening adventure. Scouting exists to actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.
The Scout section is the third section in the Scout Group, following Beavers and Cubs, for young people aged between 10 1⁄2 and 14 years old.
In their Troops, Scouts make friends with like-minded young people from all walks of life. Together, they will earn badges and awards by taking part in both indoor and outdoor activities.
When Scouts join they are ‘invested’ – making a promise to do their best and help others.
Earn badges, achieve awards and enjoy the adventure of a lifetime!
Scouts are encouraged to learn by doing, so our Scout Programme is filled with adventurous activities to develop their confidence, independence and skill set.
With their Leaders, Scouts will plan a variety activities.
You can expect Scouts to get involved in activities such as:
- Creative activities
- Backwoods cooking
- Water activities
- Community impact projects
SKILLS FOR LIFE
Scouts learn skills that are essential to building their character, helping others and developing an awareness of the world around them.
Scouting helps young people to develop:
- The ability to work effectively in a team
- Leadership skills
- Problem solving skills
- Communication skills
- A sense of responsibility
PEACE OF MIND
To ensure your child is safe, Leaders adhere to our anti-bullying, equal opportunities, safety and child protection policies.
Scouts take part in activities and learn new skills under the supervision of adult volunteers.
They work effectively and safely with young people to deliver the Scout Programme and have access to training to support them in their role.
If you have any questions, get in touch with your local Leader.
