Scouts is the third section in Scouting, and is for boys and girls aged 10½ to 14 but in some cases young people may be able to join from slightly younger if it is considered appropriate by the Leader.

Scouts take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme.  Being outdoors is really important and Scouts love to learn new skills, such as camping, survival and cooking as well as the wide range of adventurous activities, anything from abseiling to yachting.  There are many awards that Scouts can work towards, completing Challenges to get the Chief Scout’s Gold Award. However, taking part and having fun is just as important as what you achieve as a Scout.

The balanced programme of activities encourages Scouts to find out about the world in which they live, know their own abilities and the importance of keeping fit and develop their creative talents. There are also opportunities to explore their beliefs and attitudes.

Our Scout Troop meet at Woodbourne Road once a week. New Scouts can come along for a few weeks to try it out and see if they like it after which they would be expected to join the Group.  When they join they are 'invested' by taking the Scout Promise.

For details on how to join contact the Scout leaders or turn up to one of the meetings and talk to a leader. For details on subscriptions see the "Useful Info" page.
