Scouts

Scouts is the third section in Scouting, providing adventerous activities for young men and young women who are between 10.5 and 14 years old. Scouts take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme, from archery to expeditions. 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.

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.
Scouting is about being with friends, as part of a team, participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life.
