Scouts

Our Scouts leader Mark Lovell. Scouts meet every Monday in term time from 7pm to 9pm. Scouts are usually aged between ten and a half years and fourteen years old.

Although you can join from ten years old and leave at fourteen and a half in certain circumstances.This section is currently full but we are holding a waiting list.  Please contact us if you wish to be put on this list and we will aim to slot you in as soon as possible. Scouts aims to build and develop young people’s confidence, sense of adventure and outdoor skills, as well as encouraging them to explore their beliefs and attitudes and be creative.  It offers them the independence to put these skills into practice at camps and even on international trips.

Structure

The Scout Troop is the third section in the Scout Group, above Beavers and Cubs. The Scout Section is for young people aged between 10½ and 14 years.  There is core flexibility in the age range:  young people can join from age 10, and can move to Explorers between age 13½ and 14½. It may sometimes be appropriate to extend this flexibility for young people with additional needs. For further information, see our guidance on age range flexibility. A Scout Troop is divided into small groups called Patrols, each headed up by an older Scout called a Patrol Leader, and often with an Assistant Patrol Leader. Scouts are encouraged to work together and take the lead on all sorts of projects, from community based work to planning games and activities for their meetings.

Activities

Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme including traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking, as well as a wider spectrum of adventurous activities, from abseiling to zorbing. Participation rather than meeting set standards is the key approach, and there are a number of badges and awards that Scouts can gain to recognise their achievements.

Further information about badges and awards for the Scout section can be found here.

The Scout Promise poster can be downloaded here. This includes alternative promises for many faiths. Further information about The Promise in Scouting can be found here.
